“Wishing things were different is a sure way to torture yourself.” ~ unkown
This little quote has been my mantra lately. I’m working on a few behind the scenes projects and let’s just say it hasn’t all been smooth sailing. It’s so easy to wish you already had what you are striving for or that you had done something differently to get to your goal quicker.
But you know, it’s like Samantha in Sex and the City says: “Ah, could-a, would-a, should-a…”
All of this wishing and regretting just leads to a lot of uncomfortable yucky feelings or torture as stated by my the first quote. It also chips away at your confidence and creativity.
What would it be like if you accept the following: You are exactly where you need to be right now!
Read that again and mean it this time! 1, 2,3 and go…. See? Do you feel how light and free that made you feel?
And now, let’s tweet it: You are exactly where you need to be right now!
Accepting this very moment as the perfect place where you need to be right now opens you up to being present. You’re here in this very place right now for a reason. Maybe you will learn something very important right here!? Staying present and living in the moment will help you to have a calm, collected and loving mind. Calm, collected and loving minds come up with great solutions and brilliant ideas. Guess what: those amazing solutions will help you reach your goals way faster!
So keep yourself present and enjoy right now! It’s summer after all – what a glorious time to really be stuck in the moment?!
Now I’d love to hear from you. Do you often wish things were different? How do you bring yourself back to a calm and relaxed frame of mind?
