I woke up this morning feeling sad and thinking of all the things I had to do today and how I needed about 10 more hours in the day in order to get it all done.
With this kind of thinking, to tell you the truth, I did not even want to get out of bed. Overwhelm does that to you. It is paralyzing.
So, I decided to have a small chat with myself. What if, I just made the decision to take it easy today? As usual, I have been working long hours and trying to do too much. It just wears me down after a while. But, what if today, I made the choice of ease.
Then, I decided to work on only those things that really had to be done, promises I made to customers waiting etc and to do these things in a more gentle way. No rushing, no stress! Simply EASE, as though I really did have all the time in the world.
As soon as I made that choice, I felt so much lighter and things immediately started to improve everywhere.
It feels so much better physically as well, to just work from a light, easy and joyful place, rather than rushing to get things done as fast as possible, moving onto the next thing, and the next thing, and the next thing, on our “to do” list, with our body tense, anxious and tight. Nothing good can really come from that healthwise.
I also decided that If I felt like crying, that was fine as well, I didn’t stuff it inside or put it off, telling myself I was just too busy to cry. I simply cried and it moved right through me, and in a little while I was fine again. I think that crying can be a good thing, a releasing and cleansing experience.
Amazingly, after a while, I began to see all the blessings in my life right where I am NOW, and I was able to really appreciate those things in a much more profound way and SEE them from a fresh and different perspective.
And I had a great insight, the FEELING of EASE and the FEELING of ABUNDANCE are exactly the same thing. As long as I am feeling light and easy, I am much more likely to have an abundant day and a fulfilling life.
