be in the moment

IMG_0439

Hello Dear Friends

I want to talk to you today about being in the moment.  I am halfway through my course and being away from home and out of my routines gives me thinking time. I find when I have a large project or problem, I can start to look at all I have to achieve and it seems difficult. My brain starts trying to solve the puzzle and work out each step. It can be draining and overwhelming.

On the flip side, when I am at my happiest I am totally involved in the situation I am in. When I’m walking along the beach on a sunny day, the warm sun shining down, the sand between my toes, I am totally in the moment and happy. I’m taking the experience in with all five senses. It’s simple and sweet.

I’ve learned that a big problem is just a series of small challenges. Break it down into manageable chunks. The first day of this course was a 17 hour physically and mentally demanding day. If in the pre dawn, I had focussed on the whole day and that I would still be pushing myself until after dark, it would have seemed overwhelming. Instead I  chunked it down. First goal was sunrise, then the end of the first 10kms and so on. I kept the focus on the next milestone and what I needed to do to achieve it. This allows your brain to deal with one issue at a time with clear boundaries.

Do you have areas in your life where you are looking too far ahead or back? Where are your thoughts right now? Whatever you are doing, be in the moment. Don’t let your mind wander. Keep focussed and you will see the results. Life will be simpler, you will notice more things around you and your brain will thank you for it.

  2. Awesome blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Many thanks!

      Hello, great question. My primary goal was to create a business website which included a blog. I do understand what you are saying, I knew what I wanted to share with people but had no idea how to even start. I went through a company who helped me with templates and advice. If you only want to blog it may be different. When you are writing, write from you heart. Share what you have and be yourself. Everyone has something special to share, let your light shine and good luck 🙂
