Let’s face it. Today’s life compels us to rush. Because we feel pressured to be the better and best, the moments to ourselves are often the first to be scarified when we are in a hurry. We tend adopt to the pace of the environment around us and eventually forget what stillness feels like.
So when we become poured with many things that need our attention all at once, it can be difficult not to lash out with an unintentional reaction. It is essential in these times we remember that we are never given more than we can handle. However we tend to question this…and the power of a deep breath.
Our calm center is available to ground us at any time. A deep breath can help guide us to turn within to find the space to work from in the midst of all the constricted chaos our schedules contain. As we turn inward we give ourselves the opportunity to begin again by drawing our focus to the present moment, detaching ourselves from reactive thoughts and emotions. We can accept what is and let be in the present challenge so can collect all the scattered thoughts, emotions and energy in a strong container in which we can productively dwell. We notice a lightness on our shoulders, inspiration will strike and what seemed impossible will either become possible or we will realize it has become unnecessary for us at this time.
As this chaos diminishes, we have the chance to learn from the situation with proof that we are never given more than we can handle. We have shown ourselves our true capabilities. These situations can then help us to fine-tune our lives mindfully with a clear outlook. We may realize in the moment we took on too many responsibilities and obligations without insight but maybe this situation was a lesson the hard way or it was simply the way life flows. Our calm center is available to us at anytime if only we allow it.
