I was speaking with my mother today, no actually I was crying to my mother today, and she calmed me down by giving me some very valid points. She told me that no matter what happens, worrying is NOT going to do me any good. The outcome will come in due time, but torturing yourself beforehand with worry is just pointless. Of course easier said then done, but she’s right, she IS my mother.
She talked about how worrying is wasted energy. If we are in fact let down, do you think that all the worrying you did before hand is going to help you now? Nope. It was just ADDED stress, not good for the body. It is a waste of time, the outcome will eventually surface so why add MORE fear or pain in the waiting game? Actually, I can be REALLY good at channeling my inner yogi voice and NOT stressing about many things, but others, I can get more upset then I think I’ve ever been. Lately I’ve been tested, and that’s life, but man it can really test your patience and your entire soul. Again, that’s life. I’m in it, bring it!
My mother also spoke to me about positive thinking. We all know I’m a huge advocate and preacher, but sometimes, I need reminders too. My husband is pretty amazing at being positive about the unknown, and my mother enlightened me today with the fact that positive thinking centers us, and in turn, attracts goodness.
In a society filled with a lot of fear, it can be difficult to navigate through the good and the bad and decide what to pay more attention to. There can be too much information out there as well, sometimes it’s nicer to just trust the process….. Not to look online (we are all guilty of nasty google)….
You will ALWAYS get to point B, you are right where you are supposed to be, so why do we tend to focus on the bad when there is so, so, much good? It’s the world we live in, it’s our trained brains to be afraid of the “what ifs”, instead of seeing the fantastic “right now”. Do you think that if the outcome is bad your worrying did you any good? Nope. It won’t make you feel any better when you are sad, it was just ADDED stress and anxiety, so try, and I mean TRY to focus on the good.
It’s there. Don’t ignore it in your fears for the unknown. Let the process unfold and take DEEP breaths. Talk to people who distract you, or comfort you, and again, TRUST the universe. Instead of finding that ONE thing that is not answered, that isn’t solved, that “COULD” be bad and letting it consume you, focus on ALL of the good. There’s a ton of it if you just open your eyes, and your heart…and then breathe it all in.
“All we are is the result of all we have thought” Buddha…..
Namaste, and Rock On!
