I was up in my head the other day, full of anxious thoughts.
Setting up your own business is an exciting adventure but it is also fraught with unknowns. This time last year, I was in full time, paid employment. I didn’t have to worry about where the money was coming from to pay bills or buy the basics. My worry grew with each passing moment as the prospect of Christmas expenses looms before me.
Worry or excitement are the two common responses we all experience when thinking about the future. The more I contemplated mine, the more anxious I felt.
That’s when I hit the reset button. In an instant I was back in reality.
As a I realised that my worried feelings were just a result of my worried thoughts in the moment, I entered the here and now and my fears began melting away. And then they were gone!
Think about it. Your feelings don’t know anything about your future. Your feelings of anxiety, worry, fear – even excitement - can only come from thought.
Living in the present moment is hugely liberating. There are no regrets about the past and no worries about the future Just the NOW and the knowing that I am always okay. Not the little “I” (aka my ego) but the big “I” – my eternal spirit – the real me.
