Well, I missed last Monday’s meditation as we were up in Hervey Bay and there was a lot of hanging out with the boys and their nana and pop as well as watching live updates of the flood situation that was happening all around us. We were OK, but the road was cut to get back to Brisbane and poor Bundaberg just over an hour up the road was total carnage.
Nobody wants a disaster of such magnitude to come knocking on their door (or pouring through their door in this case) but I’m always struck by the amount of immense kindness and goodness that comes out after such events. How beautiful and inspiring things come out of the seemingly impossible.
So, this week my meditation is about harnessing all the beautiful possibilities that are there waiting for us in every day.
I love this as a reminder of where to send your energy. I know I’ve been guilty of sending alot of energy towards critical people in the past to try and make them less critical of me I guess. But all that happens is they then get critical of whatever effort I make as well, which tends to make me feel angry and disheartened. I am lucky not to have too many people like this in my life but unfortunately they often have the loudest voices and the longest effect on me.
Having said that, I am fortunate to have some absolutely awesome people in my life, who inspire, uplift and leave me in awe of their ambition, achievements and attitude. These are the people I want to impress and hopefully leave the same positive effect on their life too.
Have a happy week connecting to your own special peeps!
I love this quote as it sums up what I’m wanting to achive with #SMSyogaaday.
It’s easy to sink into a rut and start to feel down when faced with life’s pressures. I am an introvert by nature which means I need some alone time each day to recharge and reenergise and I sometimes feel that quietly going about my work can be misjudged and misunderstood. I don’t stand out in a crowd but I am passionate about doing my best at all things. For all these reasons and more, these words really speak to me.
Wishing you all a shiny week xxx
Wouldn’t it be great if we could manage those self-limiting thoughts inside our head? Mine take control sometimes and make me feel ‘less than’, make me fearful and hold me back from my potential. This week, I resolve to stop letting them control me.
