So, it seems I’ve been worried a lot lately. To say there have been major changes in my life in the last 18 months would be an understatement. Sometimes, as you open your mind to universal thought the pathways are not always what we expected as we are thrust into the Hero’s Journey.
But why worry?
Then I read Mark J’s blog this morning. BAM!
Worry comes from living either in the past or the future. If one is truly living in the moment there is no space for worry.
So often we let present slip away as we worry about the future and question our actions in the past. If we allow it, these thoughts come at us like a deafening waterfall.
I recall sitting on a bench in Kauai a little over a year ago, tears streaming down my face that I was leaving that beautiful spot and that I longed to come back. Thinking to myself, “It’s so beautiful here. I want to come back here someday.” BUT I WAS ALREADY THERE!
That’s it, isn’t it?
By focusing on now, savoring this moment, rumination ceases and worry melts away.
