Do you carry around a vague uneasiness? A constant feeling of “I should be doing something, fixing something, becoming something, accomplishing something,” etc.?
Like you, I am inundated with information from multiple sources each day and into the night. There is so much available to us that we can’t possibly process it all, consciously, anyway. This leaves us feeling like we are spinning our wheels, never getting anywhere, because there is always something else to do or get.
The thing is, none of the pressure is coming from our inner desires. Our survival instinct is constantly being triggered by messages of scarcity from advertisers and attack messages from news media. This causes us to feel continually on edge.
Here Are Some ‘Peace of Mind’ Questions to Consider:
Whose voice is in your head?
What is it telling you?
How do you feel, generally?
Does your worry match your reality? (as in, if you look around your immediate surroundings, are you in danger? Are you lacking the necessities of life?)
What will really happen if you’re late?
What happens when you do nothing?
Guess what? You get to decide what is worth your precious energy and time. Is the drive you feel in your life coming from inside of you or is it from your family or society? If the ‘getting there’ is in no way enjoyable, then it may be time to re-consider the where it is you are going and why.
I am surrounded by abundance and am enjoying working on and toward things that I desire. There is a balance, however, around feeling satisfied with and accepting of where I am now and where I want to go and things I want to accomplish, that I still struggle with. I easily get caught up into feelings of ‘not enough.’
What about you?
