LIFE IS HAPPENING ALL AROUND US.
Are we really here? Are we doing everything to appreciate this gargantuan gift we’ve been given? Or are we too busy complaining, worrying, stressing, planning…are our minds filled with so much static that we’ve become deaf to everything that truly matters?
Noticing these patterns of stress and worry are the first steps back to gratitude. When you realize how much you’re taking for granted by simply losing yourself in negative, critical and often times abusive thought patterns, I would hope the next thought that crosses your mind is, “Fuck. Wow. I’ve wasted a lot of fucking time stewing on shit that really, truly doesn’t matter.” And you know what? If it does, it’ll find a way to work itself out, if you just focus on the positive aspects of the situation and let the rest go.
“Only one thing has to change for us to know happiness in our lives: where we focus our attention.” ~Greg Anderson
LET IT THE FUCK GO.
Let it all go. Give it up. Focus solely on the silver lining, the things that generate and awaken feelings of appreciation, positivity…something, anything to zone in on what will derail your downward spiral.
Those who say that’s easier said than done are right. They’re also typically the people who repel those who don’t feel like getting pulled into a vortex of soul-sucking energy. These people repel those who choose to see what’s up – those who choose to acknowledge the light rather than dwell in the darkness.
GROW SOME BALLS. (WO)MAN UP AND GET OVER YOURSELF.
We’re WAY too mind-driven. We’re drowning in angry tidal waves of fear and confusion that are waging a war within the ribbed walls of our skulls. It’s like a whale’s belly; we’re lost inside, screaming bloody murder…screaming. Screaming into space, into an empty carcass, surrounded by the harrowing echoes of our own desperate, lonely cries.
We’ve become trapped, dislodged, disconnected, drowning in the narrowing tunnels of analysis and statistics.
Reconnect. Wake up. See yourself, see your partner, see your friend. Really look and notice things. Strive to notice things that have become invisible to you. Set the intent, every day, to be AWARE; aware of your surroundings, your words, your energy.
BE AWARE OF YOUR EXISTENCE.
Be mindful of your contributions and their impacts. Think before you act. Practice the lost art of listening. Stop caring what other people think and redirect that energy towards being the most authentic human being possible. The greatest gift you can give to anyone in this life is simply BEING YOURSELF. Wholly, completely, unabashedly yourself.
FUCK THE REST. YOU KNOW IT DOESN’T MATTER.
You also know what DOES matter. Pour your energy towards that – whatever wakes you up, energizes you, excites you, inspires you, motivates you – go towards that light. If you’re not happy with who and where you are, it’s because you’ve been spending too much time on the things that don’t matter. We all do it – don’t beat yourself up over it.
SIMPLY CHANGE YOUR DIRECTION.
Try it. Even if just for a day, and notice all the miracles that happen.
RINSE, WASH, REPEAT.
Keep this cycle of miracles going. Keep your energy flowing to all the right places. Witness and become one with this truly epic process of transformation.
NOW…GO FORTH AND BE FUCKING EXCELLENT!!!
