Destination addiction…

Beware of
destination addiction: The idea that happiness is in the next place, the next job, or even with the next partner. Until you give up the idea that happiness is somewhere else, it will never be where you are.

The more you can become aware and a part of the present time, the happier you can be living in the “NOW”.

Destination addiction is thinking that the next destination, partner, or job will be somehow better than the present is.

Beware that now is all there really is and all there will ever be.

Someday is more of an illusion than reality, so if you are ever going to be happy, you’d better focus on being happy in the NOW.

Note to self…

Note to self…

 

When life is hectic and your are

overwhelmed, and your brain is

like a squirrel darting across a

busy street, remember that all

you ever have to do, at any given

moment, is the next thing.  You

can manage that.  Also, you should

drink some water.  Maybe have

some chocolate or something.

You’re doing fine.

Life can become overwhelming.

Especially when you have a lot of things on your mind.

 

Your to-do list gets out of hand and your head

is trying to figure out how in the world you are going to get it all done

in the small window of time you have to do it in.

 

Everything starts jamming together and you can’t even think any more.

Then you get a text from a caring friend that says “Everything will be all right.”

 

“Just slow down and breathe” she says.

 

Then you start to function again.

You take a deep breath in and forcefully blow it back out.

 

You realize that your to-do list is a just a product of your own creation.

And that nothing will actually happen if you DON’T complete everything

you have put on your list.

 

So why do we do this to ourselves?

Is productivity so important that we cause ourselves undue stress

to force ourselves to do more?

Are we subconsciously trying to be Superman or some other super hero?

 

And at what costs?

While we are busy and stressing out we also effect our close friends and loved ones.

We actually add unneeded stress to their lives also.

 

So take a moment to reevaluate your life and rethink your priorities.

Remember what is really important to you and make sure

you add that to the top of your to-do list.

 

Don’t forget to drink some water and eat your chocolate.

It makes life worth living.

 

You are doing FINE.

just KEEP GOING…

Pay attention…

Pay attention…

 

It’s OK if you don’t know

how much more you can

handle.  It’s fine if you

don’t know what to do

next.  Eventually, you’ll

let go of how things

should be and start to see

possibilities based on

reality.  It’s your life-

grasp the steering wheel

and force yourself to pay

attention to where

you’re going.

~Wendy Keller

Just start wherever you are right now -and go from there.

If things are really bad right now, do what you can to sooth yourself.

You might start with taking a nice hot bath or shower.

Checking out your favorite essential oils and applying your favorite ones to your wrist and the back of your neck. Sniffing them gently as they influence and lift your mood.

Put on your favorite uplifting song and listen to it over and over until you feel better.

Some people go shopping and buy something new to wear.  Some go out to lunch or get a cup of their favorite coffee.

Whatever you can do to feel just a little better will take you to that next step.  Then just keep going until you can find things to be happy about.

It’s your life-

grasp the steering wheel and go where you want to go.

Start the next chapter…

You

can’t start

the next

chapter

of your life

if you keep

re-reading

the last one.

~Zig Zigler

 

Sometimes it is really hard to let go of something.

Even if a relationship isn’t working very well, at least it is “familiar.”

So many people hold on just for the comfort of knowing what to expect with that person and relationship, but if that’s what you are doing, you will never get to a new chapter.

You will just keep re-reading the same old chapter and getting the same old story as you have been getting.

Why not try something new and exciting?

Maybe it’s even time to move on and start reading a new book.

You never know how much better it can get if you don’t even try…

True love may be just around the next corner…
