Welcome to how my life has been going and I am sure that at one stage or another you have been there too, stumbling over your own thoughts, having thoughts trip over themselves, and everything lands up in this massive disgusting mess! Like eggs are being smashed on the floor, and I am left curled up in the corner hyperventilating and staring at the mess hoping that if I can squeeze my eyes shut tight enough it will just go away….
Knowning that I have to sort myself out and get up and shake it off and more on but also knowing its tide to me around my throat and waist and no matter where I go it aint leaving.
Have you been there, stressing about tomorrow and the future and the past and the present and it swirls around your head like a tornado on steroids, making you cling onto tiny little habits for security.
Welcome to my life, I know you can relate, and that was me up until December…. Then something happened and looking back I think it is Divine intervention (I love the idea that it is magic, its my childhood inner princess)
Here is my little story that has shifted my life beyond comprehension, over the last 4 months.
My camera is my happy place, photography is my thing its my outlet my love my, and I will say it again, my happy place. But it wasn’t working and I needed to find out why, Helooooooo Google.
“if you want to be successful you must blog”
Oh, ok, how….
And I was led to tutorials on blogging, then, that directed me to learning business,
“in three hundred meters turn right”
But I know business pfffft
But I do, so lets turn left and take another photoshop tutorial
Why cant I do it why isn’t it working , I am so useless I am so hopeless me me me I I I bla bla bla
Ok fine damit I will turn right
AND THERE WAS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL, BEAUTIFUL ENERGISING GOLDEN LIGHT! And women who are incredible and sensational and inspiring! (should have listened and turned right)
listening and learning from them has been awe inspiring, and I think because I saw little changes since the beginning of the year, I was more open and receptive to actually hearing what was being said….
Marie Forlio talks about making the is-ness your business, and I really want you to try this out!
It is so flipping simple it is scary and it actually helps to declutter our minds.
And here it is
Live in the moment that is now, make this moment your reality and your truth, devote your time your energy and your being to the exact moment you find yourself in. easy hay! And if we can do that, then it makes every moment worthwhile and the future somehow manages to get worked out.
I have used this in the following ways…
When someone talks to me, I concentrate on what they are saying to me, I hear the words watch their bldy language and devote myself to that moment
When I sit at my desk the task at hand receives my full attention.
I do what I can to shut out the external distractions to be able to concentrate on that moment and task at hand…
Part of this is another saying of hers, “what we resist persists” stuff is there to bug us for a reason, hear it listen to it and it will shut up, if we don’t it will carry on bugging you until you do listen…
So listen up there, hear it and then you can handle it.
Give it a test run, I would love to see and hear how it works for you, and if you are keen to share then please let me know by either leaving a comment or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
