Relax and Breathe…Yes, life is hard and it sucks sometimes. But, we tend to make things worse by over thinking, being way too hard on ourselves and by buying into the mind game that this is “how it has to be”. Listen, no one knows better than I do how incredibly tough it can get. I have been there. But nothing is gained by staying in that space. You are no good to anyone when you buy into that BS notion that life just sucks AND that this is how life is meant to be. Key there: “meant to be”. That is just not true!
Is life always a “bowl of cherries” or whatever fruit makes you happy? Of course not! And, let’s not buy into that idea either because that is unrealistic.That’s just more of that mind game really.
How about finding the space in life (it takes you not giving up or giving in. This shit ain’t easy you know!) where things flow more often than not? How about accepting that things will be tough from time to time and allowing that to be? Allowing yourself that space to feel sad or bad or angry? Yes, that is okay too. It really is.
Where things get muddied up is when we stay there. When we let that become who we are and what we are. That does not need to happen! Ever…..
Today why not make conscious choices and create the day that YOU want. Take a few minutes to be grateful. Gratitude is a magic trick that can do amazing things in your life, if you are consistent with it. Why not accept that things might (probably will) happen that are not according to plan? If you come at life that way it’s hard to get knocked down and even harder for things to keep you down…
Love, Peace and Joy to you my friends!
