Tomorrow the driving lessons start up again, but only for one day. The last day. Granted the last day is exactly a week later than it was supposed to be due to being completely decommissioned for a week. As awful as I felt that week, in a way I think I needed it as it put many things into perspective…
We all want to be Super Man. We all want everything to get done now, but in doing so we risk throwing everything off. During that week I forced myself to transition from an all-work-no-play life style when wanting to get things done to a carefully balanced work-and-play lifestyle that allows me to get everything done while simultaneously making time for recuperation.
I feel recharged and the nervousness in anticipation for the upcoming life changes has been replaced with pure bliss – that peculiar I-want-to-scream-it-from-the-rooftops kind of happiness.
And during that week I finally started to put an important thought process into action – trying to not worry about the future. Mindfulness. Root yourself in the present moment. Time will pass anyway, so try not to worry as much about things to come, whether these things are good or bad. Enjoy your shower – feel the water hit your skin. Enjoy the last few minutes under your fluffy blanket before drifting off into sleep – feel the warmth rock you to sleep.
I am still learning this and it will take a long time to truly learn how to push every single worry under the mat, but it’s a start, and I challenge you to try it as well! 🙂
I hope all of you are having a good day or evening, wherever you are!
