We can spend so much worrying about little things that, in the grand scheme of things, won’t ever matter.
These things include:
…if that person liked you or not
…if you did it right (your latest task at work, writing a message to a friend, making a coffee for someone…)
…if you are wearing the right outfit for where you are at
…literally anything that hasn’t happened yet (and possibly might never happen)
Do you see where I’m going? There are tonnes of things that we shouldn’t let infiltrate our mind and over take our senses. And I’m not perfect at this. Just recently I’ve been finding my thoughts consumed by an opportunity and what it will exactly look like. I can’t control that. I can’t control when, who, what or any other part of that opportunity. I’ve done my role in putting up my hand, saying I’m open and available, I now need to release, let it go and accept what will be. Instead my mind has been racing with all sorts of hypothetical scenarios.
So what should we be focused on instead?
First and foremost, think about yourself. How do you feel about yourself? If you don’t love yourself sick then the first thing to work on would be your own self love. From there, so many things grow. When you love yourself and truly trust yourself, all those little worries fade away.
Then focus on how engaged you are right now with life. Are you just floating through, allowing yourself to be taken along by the current of life? Or are you deliberately and purposefully creating your reality? If it isn’t the latter, then that is what you should be working towards. Putting yourself back in the drivers seat of your life.
Finally focus on what you can be proud of yourself for. What have you achieved, what have you done that you smile about? When you spend some time giving yourself a pat on the back, you create within you a desire to do more of that. Then you will find yourself focusing less on those little things and more and more on what matters most to you.
This really is a reminder to you that life is sort. There is absolutely no point in wasting any time on things that won’t matter in the end. So spend your time on what makes you happy and what makes you feel fulfilled. And I promise you that when you do that, you will have a life worth lived.
