Today is day 8 of my challenge. I feel I am actually making tracks in a new habit. I am finding it easier and easier to “talk myself into” doing the work outs. It’s a new routine to get up 15 minutes earlier so I can direct my energy the way I want it to go. #gome
I love starting the day with kundalini yoga for 20 minutes.
It stimulates heat in my body in a wonderful way and is an energizing way to start the day. I hope to continue this even after the challenge.
I have been thinking about loss and loneliness and expectations.
I have been feeling lonely quite a bit lately.
I haven’t been alone.
I haven’t been without things to do.
I haven’t been bored.
I have done fun things with fun people.
I have laughed. A lot.
My mind has not been idle and pining away for something.
So why do I feel lonely and loss?
I think it is connected to my expectations. I think I keep expecting something big, grand, wonderful, when in actuality, my life is BIG, GRAND, and JUICY just the way it is right now.
Whenever I expect something, it doesn’t really matter what I get. It could be a most wonderful experience or gift if I took the time to actually see with my eyes and ehart instead of what I thought I should be getting or having or experiencing.
The expectations diminish whatever juicy I could have been experiencing if I had chosen to be in the moment and not in my head.
I think that holding onto expectations is living with a scarcity mentality.
If I am hoping for something and can see what I have, I am living like I believe that I can’t what is in front of me because I am missing out on something else.
By living as if I am missing out on something is believing in scarcity.
I can never fully enjoy what I have if I am missing or wishing for something more.
Being mindful and present is giving me an opportunity to see how rich and juicy my life is right now.
I don’t want to believe in scarcity.
I want to believe in life being juicy.
I believe that life is juicy.
I believe the universe does have my back.
I believe that I will have exactly what I believe I can have with hard work, commitment, a clear eye on the prize, and the willingness to do what I can do.
