No, seriously – that’s it.
If all you did was slow down, be present and stop living every moment in anticipation of being somewhere else, your so-called problems will melt away and you’ll be MUCH happier.
Let go of thinking, obsessing and all the ‘what if’s’.
Release all your goals and concerns for the future and instead replace them with the power of this instant and enjoying it to the fullest extent.
Learn to accept things as they unfold in your life – surrender to ‘what is’ and not what you think it ‘should’ be.
That applies to your spouse, the president, your boss, your kids, your financial status, etc… As hard as this may sound, surrendering to the present moment and allowing things to unfold as they do will literally change your life immediately.
There are no lacks or shortages in your life. You may think there are – but in reality, things are what they are. It’s YOU who can’t accept that which causes never-ending stress. Simplify your life by accepting EVERYTHING as it is. Anything that may seem to be missing in your life is really only an illusion. Learn to have contentment with ‘what is’ and you’ll begin to have a completely stress-free existence.
Look back on your life and on all the so-called problems you’ve had at one point or time. First off, you probably can’t remember 90% of the things you used to drive yourself nuts worrying about. And second, things always seem to work themselves out over time – they always have and always will. You don’t need another ‘thing’ to make you happy – all you really need is right here and now because right here and now is all you’ll ever really have.
DAILY ACTION: Catch yourself when you find yourself not in the moment or striving to be somewhere else. Bring yourself back to the present.
