Even with the increase in technologies that promise to give us more free time, we still find ways to pack our schedules and live increasingly frantic lives. With slowing down not being an option, it’s common to find ourselves in a perpetual state of autopilot.
Here are 3 things you need to remind yourself of sometimes.
1) You can do whatever you want in life.
You can’t forget that you’re in charge. You get to choose the life you live. Only you have the power to create the life you want. Take Action! Life is not a spectator sport. Life is too short not to pursue your dreams. Stop procrastinating. Take a risk and work towards what fulfills you. Anything is possible and it’s never too late to start.
2) All you have is now.
You can’t forget that life is a gift and tomorrow is not guaranteed. Your loved ones will not always be there. The best gift you can give them is your attention. Be Mindful; realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Choose wisely how you live and how you treat others. Stop worrying about your schedule, email, and news feed. Focus on the present moment; focus on now.
3) You’re not in control.
You can’t forget that control is an illusion. Life is uncertain and unexpected things are going to happen. There are unforeseen struggles on the horizon that will leave you feeling powerless. Ruminating and trying to think of all possible scenarios actually makes things worse. All we can do is enjoy the time that we have with each other and practice gratitude.
