Life can easily pass us by. We can wake up one day and realize that we have not gotten where we intended to go and yet have still paid a price. We can realize that ten or twenty years have passed and we are still the same. This sort of life is easy to fall into, we can succumb to the different barriers placed by our environment and not strive to improve. we can simply make excuses and carry on until some distant point in the future where we realize that we could have done more if only we had made a few differences. If only we had made a slight change in our daily lives, these changes would have compounded over time and we would have ended up at a much different destination.
The Mindful Solution
The great part of life is that you are your own director and producer. You can call the shots, you just have to wake up and make a change. You have look at what you want, understand where you are going and more importantly, deeply understand why you want to get to your particular destination. When we wake up and start acting in this manner we begin to move in a more mindful direction.
Instead of simply being carried away by the different cares of this life, we start to steer the ship a little bit more each and every day. We figure out what we are trying to do and take steps each day to get to where we are going. We make sure to pay attention to where our minds are wandering and slowly bring it back to where we need it to be. We focus on the present, on what needs to be done and we slowly carry on. Before we know it we have made significant advancements and are headed in the right direction.
When we begin our journey we may need a little assistance. Thankfully, there are mentors out there with tips, tactics and strategies like Orion’s Method that can provide guidance in more ways than one. Our duty is to want to make a change and seek out assistance to continue successfully on our path.
Be aware, be more mindful and get started on your journey today.
