Life is made up of the little things, the little moments, seemingly mundane– like waiting in line, scrolling through your feed, walking to the car, getting up from the couch, preparing a meal, or driving to the store.
Moment in, moment out. That’s honestly like 99% of your lived experience and you’re on auto-pilot for much of it, until you have to slam on the breaks, or Bae suddenly gets down on one knee with little box in hand.
You’re literally sleep walking through life waiting on the ‘awesome’ stuff, avoiding the ‘terrible’ stuff, never, ever present to THIS STUFF here, now, which is your only point of power. So today, I want you to take back a little bit of your power. For the rest of the day, every time you go from sitting to standing, I want you to do it consciously. Become totally aware in that moment, like you’re watching a movie. In fact, watch that body like it’s not yours, but a character in a movie. Watch it stand, then consciously think and feel ‘thank you, thank you, thank you’, and then go about your business. Bringing just this much presence and appreciation into your life will have PROFOUND and swift effects. It’s a small, 3 second addition to your day but it will yield big results. ‘Take care of the present and the future will take care of itself’- Ramana Maharshi
