Day 138: Moving Forward
So today is a great day to reflect. Over the course of November, I’ve felt incrediby motivated and inspired. There have been many circumstances and opportunities to improve my knowledge base, and for that I am extremely grateful. Along with the occurrence of new however, can sometimes come stress. And stress in my eyes is vital to the continuation of my dreams. Let me explain.
I know that whenever stress shows up in my life, for whatever reason, I experience feelings of not enough and smallness, that those are just my fears coming out to play in the forms of stressors. And this stress can sometimes make me feel like a wave is taking me under, and that I am unable to move forward. But, this does not last forever. It’s momentary.
Stress is miniscule in nature because it has only the power that you give to it. It is meant to teach you something. Just as we are shown different parts of ourselves everyday, in everyday meetings and goings on, stress is similar in that it is limited to that moment. If we can but for a minute remove ourselves from the effects of stress, see the wave for what it is and get out of our heads and back into our bodies, than we can definitely move forward feeling empowered.
It’s just, how do you do this?
Well in my experience, the best way to do this is to think about why it’s happening, what’s in your control, what’s outside of your control and what can you do right now that feels right. By taking these simple steps I’ve been able to figure out innumerable challenges and empower myself to know that I’m still moving forward, still on my path, and still going strong. I feel better knowing that my emotional state isn’t in upheaval over something that will not last forever, and I ultimately feel compelled to keep my balance instead of letting myself get pulled out to sea.
With that in mind, here’s a poem that allows me to breathe out a sigh of pleasure, relief and relaxation…
In the Right Place,
At the Right Time,
Doing the Right Thing,
With the Right People,
For the Right Reason,
Everything is Perfect.
You Can Have the Right Results!
All you need is a Right Heart & Mind…
an Open Heart & Mind.
& remember to keep your Eyes Open too!”
Take a deep breath, look around, take stock, think and remember that you’re moving forward no matter what. Ride that wave baby.
