We go through hills and valleys as all human beings do of really staying mindful of the happenings around us and then overlooking them and taking them for granted. I’ve noticed my ego getting the best of me lately and I was overlooking the small things around me that I should really be appreciating. I realized that these things I’m kind of taking for granted are things I’ve been praying for, for a very long time. I realized that instead of constantly looking for tiny things to complain about, I should just be grateful for what is. I centered myself and brought balance back into my life by acknowledging that I’m not always being as mindful as I should. Admitting your faults does that!
Everything could be gone in a second. Before I had it, I wanted it and now that I have it, I’m complaining about it. No – that shouldn’t be. But I’m not alone in these feelings – many of my clients and others I speak with struggle with the same things. I think we all as humans struggle with this because as much as we want to try to stay mindful and really be grateful – life happens, sh*t happens. We lose our cool (yes, even the most zen, lost their cool at times!). We lose our patience, we forget what’s important. This is life. This happens to everyone. No one is perfect. I can’t be a teacher without always being a student. I’m always learning and growing from my own personal lessons and from my interactions with family, friends, clients, strangers, etc. If I never admitted my struggles, I wouldn’t be real. If I never confessed I have moments where I forget my own words of wisdom, I wouldn’t be human. The teacher is always the student. I always repeat this to myself. My growth helps your growth. Your growth helps my growth. We are all connected, we are all one. Remember this today! Today’s Daily Affirmation:
