Breathing

The importance of breathing is so underrated.  I sometimes find myself holding my breath for extended periods during my workday.  I don’t even realize I’m doing it until I notice that my eyes feel dried out and my head begins to hurt.  I think that because of the hectic pace and high stress levels of my job, I forget the importance just taking a moment to enjoy a deep breath.  I read a great post by Chris Asaad from The Daily Love website.  I really enjoyed the message and I will try to keep it with me as I work tomorrow…

Determination

Something has changed in me. I’ve come pretty close to this point before but now something is different. I’m done. I refuse to continue disliking what I do everyday. I refuse to continue to live by someone else’s rules. My life is too important to waste it wondering how to get to the next level. It’s time for me to just jump. The way I see it I will  either fall and learn one way not to do it or I will fly even higher than I ever thought. No more bs. I’m putting in writing because I’m super serious. I AM READY TO LEVEL UP MY LIFE!

Staying mindful

It’s been such a struggle for me to remember to be mindful. I keep getting so tied to my emotions that I often forget to take myself out of the situation. I know the theory and I understand the importance I just struggle with it. I’ve had a few rough days in part because of this. I think I might increase my meditation up to five minutes because I’ve gotten into the habit now and I think more quiet time would help.

Be easy on yourself…

This is what I’m constantly working on!

Be easy on yourself…

You don’t need to ‘figure out’ your entire life right now…

You don’t need to ‘sort’ everything out and make decisions on how things are going to be…

 

You just have to relax into this moment…

You just have to let go internally…

 

Let go of the need to evaluate and analyse your life…

Let go of the need to judge yourself, life and others…

 

Just accept and surrender to this moment as it is…

No matter how much you resist it, this moment already is…

 

Then, as you continue to practice surrender in your daily life it will start to merge into your natural state of being, your natural state of mind, and then, you will find as Jesus beautifully described ‘‘the peace that passes all understanding’’.

 

You don’t need to figure anything out…

Just relax…

Just be here…

Eating healthy

I’m the biggest excuse maker when it comes to healthy eating. I wait until the point that I feel like I’m starving before I actually get something to eat. That leads me to making poor choices because I’m just ready to get some food. Even that’s just an excuse. I guess I just haven’t weeded out all of my bad habits just yet. I have added this to my mindfulness list but I’m finding that this is just a slow process.

Socially awkward

I am ridiculously awkward in any social situation.  I never know how to respond and then when I finally do pick some sort of awkward thing to say or do, I always feel like it’s the wrong thing.  I suspect that people might think I’m strange (I know I do) but I never really know how people perceive me.  I know this is a result of me not being comfortable with myself.  I have gotten much better but I still think about it.

Crazy brain

My mind is all over the place all of the time. It’s really a wonder that I can even get anything done ever. When I imagine a visual image of how I feel my mind works, I see a squirrel on speed. Random, I know but the things that run through my head are too. Like for these blog posts, I will come up with like 7 or 8 topics during the day to write about but then once I start writing, something completely different comes out. I’m guessing this is what the meditation will eventually help with but I’m certainly not there yet.
