We start the new year with all of this hope and wishes. Like, I wish that this year I could get my shit together, or I hope this year I will lose that 5kg, or I wish this year finally brings me some down time...how much self torture do we put ourselves through?! Like enough, already!
That voice inside your head can be so very judgmental can't it? Thinking about, hoping, wishing, wanting....do you know sometimes that can be about wanting external influences (be it people or things) to come along and make it come true. Sometimes that's right don't you think? I mean why do we hand over our power so easily to external factors?
We need to rise above that voice, rise above those extrinsic thoughts and instead focus on what we are truly capable of (it's bigger than you believe) and what is really important to us right now. I know, I know, it all sounds simple and if we could all do that all day we would probably be Buddah. Yeah, I think I'm about 1000 years off that kind of enlightenment, haha!
I guess what I am saying is we need to pay attention to that voice, know that it is just our tricksy brain (yes, tricksy) and rise above it. Focussing on what we do want is a lot more valuable use of our time and then we can really do something about it!!
If you could focus on anything right now, what would it be? Now go do that. xx
