For someone who was obsessed with marching forward every moment, recently, I have found myself reveling in the present moment. My now. It is truly wonderful.
Not that my fears and anxieties don’t creep in. But I’m better equipped to handle them now.
Letting go the need to control and allowing my personal journey to unfold moment by moment has been eyeopening for me. I have learned several things in a short span of time.
Here is what I have learned and hopefully you too can find useful.
The Best Experiences Happen When You Don’t Try Hard
I have almost completely stopped trying. I don’t try for things and desired situations to happen to me anymore. Whenever I desire something to happen, I actually do nothing.
You may be thinking: But isn’t that the opposite of what you want? Don’t you have to take action?
I wish I knew this beautiful nugget of wisdom before. It would have made my life so much easier! Well, my answer is you don’t have to do anything.
I create space and focus on my internal experience. I make myself centered and work on feeling a deep sense of fulfillment and gratitude. When I have immersed in this state of mind deep enough, I notice a nudge in my heart. I feel a desire to take an action. An inspired action.
An inspired action which produces feelings of happiness and desired results a million times better than if I had mindlessly pushed.
Go With The Universal Flow
Another huge aspect of letting the journey unfold day by day is to just go with the flow. I started and still do baby steps.
I have kept my self care routine very simple. I eat the foods that nourish my body and soul. I dance in my bedroom to music and let my energy flow. I work out daily. I journal. I meditate. I don’t do them every single day. Just whenever I feel to do them. I really listen to my body and needs.
I go with how I am feeling at the moment. If I want a cup of tea, that’s what I do. When I am the most relaxed and going with the Universal flow of energy, it is when I feel inspired to work on something.
Let Go Yesterday
Let go of what happened to you. Don’t rehash the same stories again. It’s taking away from living your desired life and actualizing your highest potential.
I’m not saying forget the lessons and wisdom from your experiences. Do remember them. Even cherish them. But don’t attach yourself to them and let them take you down. You are meant to only rise, beautiful lady.
