Feels messy right, feels like you aren't quite on top of things, feels overwhelming and often it is. It feels stressful and wrong and out of alignment with what you say you want from life.
Whilst you can't control much in life, you can control how you think about a situation, which is where Mindfulness comes in.
When YOU learn to be a more mindful YOU, magical things start happening.
You know that same row you have had with your partner over and over again, until you know exactly what they will say, how you will react and how the argument will ultimately end?
Well when you learn to be more mindful as a person, you start to turn that reaction into responding, you turn those shouts into well thought out and gentle statements, you turn the anger into compassion for yourself and the other person, you can accept (not agree or condone) but accept another persons's point of view. You don't HAVE to be right anymore, you can just be you.
The reason you do this is because you now understand more about you, you have looked at, thought about and accepted who you are as a person. There is no more 'mask' to hide behind, you have more clarity of thought and know that you are just one breath away from a new, more empowering one, should the old one no longer be serving you.
Over these past few months, we have visited the A~Z of Mindfulness for many situations and I do hope that you have learnt a bit more about yourself as a result of doing some of them. We only have Z to go :)
There is a gentle unfolding sitting at the heart of mindfulness. This is not about squeezing the most out of yourself...this is about allowing yourself to be heard, to be understood and to be accepted...warts and all. It is your light that most people wish to see in the world, yet it is your darkness that can teach you and them so much more. It won't always be pleasant, it won't always be easy but I promise you it will be worth it.
If I can go from being one of THE most unconfident people you will ever meet to becoming the confident woman I was born to be, than anyone can change anything about their current situation. I believe that wholeheartedly.
I believe in a more Mindful YOU,
