When the going gets tough … the tough get grounded.
The past couple of weeks have been like a proverbial roller coaster. Now I have time to to reflect and share some insights.
I noticed there was a rocky start when I was in shock and denial. Wishing things could be different. But the more I sat with the reality, the more I let go of resistance and found acceptance.
Yes, there was fear. Fear about what could happen. Fear about loss. Projecting anxiety into the future creates more worry in the mind … and stress in the body. That is why finding time to pause, walk outside, meditate, BREATHE and practice yoga became so important to me.
Coming into the present moment and accepting the way things are, brings alignment rather than resistance and tension.
The universe aligned the best people and resources to tackle the situation and I knew that we were in good hands.
Since then I found time every day to pause and come fully in the present … and live my own words.
“Life is a series of highs and lows
Be grateful for the highs
Be graceful in the lows
And find contentment in your middle ground.”
The Middle Ground is always there for us every time we pause and bring our attention inwards with an open mind and heart. It is where love and spirit reside.
May you find it for yourself and let it nourish you through the lows of life.
