Practice “Being” and not always “Doing”

I’m always doing. Planning, overthinking. What are the next steps? What is the next move? The only time my mind and body really idles is when I’m watching a movie.

“Doing” is innately who I am. I don’t need to be taught or told. I just do.

I even worry about being worried too much 🀦 More fixated on tomorrow than the moment.

I realize this, therefore, living in the moment is a behavior I have to work on. I literally have to “practice being.” For short periods I’m in the flow of just being. Then it turns back into my natural state of “doing.”

Eventually You Have To Let Go

Have you ever held on to a thought, a want so tight that you actually believed it was destined? Like you connect all the dots and say to yourself, it has to be. This, this and this happened. It has to be. It’s all so elusive but your gut is saying it’s a sure thing.

The mind is very powerful. And is also a trickster. It will fool you into just about anything the heart desires. That job. That girl. That thing.

You would think they would learn how to better work together. You go months, even years with this concoction of fantasies. Holding on so tight to something that was never really meant to be yours.

There comes a point when you start to wonder and question all the dots that you connected. I think during this time your frequency starts to pick up static. You’re getting different signals. It connects but not fully. Now you’re left with an open line just waiting for the song to play clearly. It’s a very crucial time because it will alter the course of your life.

Will you patiently wait, slowing adjusting the knob (my age is showing, lol)? Or will you rush it and force the knob to find a connection, any connection?

The first choice I think is a good one. You’re already confused and unsure. To me, that signals you need to take a step back and zen out. Clear your mind and allow yourself the time to release what it is your holding on so tight too. Let the smoke clear. Then let whatever needs to come in follow.

Choice two…you’re desperate. Blindly searching for what you want without careful deliberation. If you keep chasing something that yields no return…you eventually have to face the truth. As hard as it may be, you must. That or either miss out on other possibilities that could be great.

The universe forces us when it has too. There are times when it’s nudging you. To think and rethink things.

There are a few questionable circumstances going on in my life right now. I’m not going to react. Instead I’ll make a conscious decision to stay open and receptive to what the universe is asking of me. I’m not the best meditator but I will most definitely try these coming weeks. Let my inner being come out and tell me what the hell it is I’m supposed to be doing 😣 The last thing I need to do is run on emotions.

There are a couple of things that I have come to terms with. One is letting go. Things that I thought were meant to happen. Like I’m REALLY letting go. New beginnings are presenting itself. A little scary I must admit. But life is so short and I refuse to let past hang-ups and let downs get in the way. #icant Regardless of the unwanted things that have happened in my life…I really am grateful to be alive. Truly.

Conclusion…you can hang on for as long as you like. But eventually you have to let go. Somethings in this life just wasn’t meant for you. Maybe the next one 🀷 Have faith and keep moving forward.

Abundance Is Not Something We Acquire. It Is Something We Tune into – Wayne Dyer β€” The Seeds 4 Life

When we look for gratitude, we find more of it. When we look to be and give love, we receive more of it. Love for ourselves, love for others, love for life. We always have a choice in how we decide to approach the experiences of life. If we decide to live in aΒ spirit…
