Mental Health Mantra 8/365
There are always going to be a number of scenarios, shall I go this way, shall I go that way? Will this happen, will this not happen? Do I need to do this, do I need to do that? These past 15 months since Mum died and all that has come after that, I have had to make a real huge effort to let go of the what ifs. Because, well, there are many directions and many things to confuse myself with.... the what if game gets very tiring and worry some, and what or who does it serve?
I liken it to the film Sliding Doors, basically we always have choices of this way or that way. I have made choices that with hindsight I wish I had made a different choice.
The present moment is all we have... and in the present moment we decide. Some of that is in our control and then there is stuff that's external out of our control.
I am not going to give any energy to my what ifs here ... because what would be the point in that. What we focus upon grows. So I'll keep them tucked away.
I will continue to let go of my what ifs and feel into this present moment of right now.. i.e here typing this right now.
If a what if appears ... I have my mantra to turn to and I will be making sure this Muse is somewhere to be seen.
I let go of my what ifs.
Give it a whirl, why don't you?
Keep shining your bright light and remember your intuitive intelligence.
