As I was getting just another rep at the gym, I caught myself not even knowing what number I’m at.
I notice my head is heavy and I’m so far far in the future. Planning my day ahead, what will I strategize with the new client on the coaching call? How will I get ready for my flight in couple of days? Etc, etc.
You get the picture. Have you been there?
Almost daily we overwhelm ourselves with what could be and we attempt to solve all the little details in the future so we feel like we have at least some control.
And the more we try to control the outside circumstances, the more disconnected we are from our inner world and the more frustration and anxiety we experience.
Feels like a never ending vicious cycle, don’t you think?
The constant what if this and this happens?
And then one day the straw breaks. You just surrender.
And I’m not talking about giving up ladies, I’m talking about trusting that no matter what comes up, we will have all we need to work with it.
I’m talking about surrendering to the notion that the universe has your back.
That you always have everything you need at the perfect time.
Let’s start carrying umbrellas on sunny days, shall we?
Off to finish my last set of exercises.
Taking deep a breath and reminding myself of my favorite sayings:
Wherever you are – BE there.
Each moment, each breath, just be here and now.
NOW is the only place that we feel clarity and confidence without anxiety and worry.
