It's a beautiful day here - the sun is shining and it really feels like spring is on its way. I've just finished my morning meditation and I wanted to share something that's been coming up for me lately.
For the past few days I have been meditating to The Game is Won by Lucie Silvas (there's no rule to say you can't meditate to pop music!!), and in particular these lyrics....
If everything is how it should be, then everything will come
When it gets here I'll be ready
If it's just determination, everything will come
And the games already won
It's an awesome reminder not to get caught up in future trippin'. I used to spend hours worrying about what might happen, anxiously predicting what the outcome might be, fixating on all the things that could happen - things I really didn't have any control over anyway.
Everything happens for a reason, there is a lesson to be learnt in every situation. Everything will come whether you worry about it today or not. The truth is all situations are neutral and we can choose how we perceive them to be. So instead of worrying about what 'bad' situation might occur, why not focus on where we are today knowing that whatever comes along, we have a choice to make on how we deal with it. Trust that you are fully supported.
I like the idea of viewing any situation as an opportunity - to learn, grow, experience all that this life has to offer. And if that's the case, there really is no point worrying about what might happen tomorrow or next week.
My intention for today is to be fully present. To soak up the experience of just being here in this moment, breathing. To give whatever I am doing (whether it's work, conversation with my man or cuddles with the pup) 100% of my attention.
