Oh the power of our thoughts. Where will we take this magic carpet ride? What wondrous worlds can we explore? We have such awesome and wondrous power sitting between our ears. What do you do with your big beautiful brain?
I have heard it said that “reality is over rated.” I am inclined to admit that “reality” is over processed. If you wish to live in the reality of the now – economic pressures, global warming, for those of us in the north – the shorter, darker, colder days, you certainly have the right to do so. What do you spend your time worrying about…does it help? Did worrying help last week and what is the prognosis for worrying next month?
If you are obsessing over the negative things you cannot change…consider a different option? Preparation is a good thing to be sure. So is optimism. We go to the grocery store, wash our clothes, and put gas in our cars because we wish to prepare for the future.
Do you angst over the decision to buy apples or oranges? Do you worry that the gas station will be boarded up when you go to purchase your gas? Do you get anxious and worry that the washing machine will not work when you are ready to wash your clothes? Sounds silly?
Worry is not taking action or preparing…it is simply a thought. One that does not make you happy. Why not, just for today, turn off the negative and sit in the sun (even if you have to do that indoors by a window) or relax in your recliner and take a few deep breaths in silence, without the intrusion of the television.
Just for today why not take the time to tune into your body – relax your shoulders, breathe all the way in, wiggle your toes and stretch your arms. Life is what you make of it…you deserve the best one! Namaste.
