As we travel down this road called life, we begin to realise that we make many choices and decisions that have an impact on how we travel it.
It’s never lost on me that each moment we live is never promised, especially because of the work I do. Many share with me their stories of passings, their valued memories and their unconditional love for those left behind.
These beautiful souls that have left the physical plane are keen to share their experiences and being the messenger, I get these reminders often.
So that led me to share these insights today in my article. I’m often reminded of how much we can focus on the annoying things here on earth about those we spend the most time with. And these are the things we miss the most, oddly enough once they pass away. So I often remind myself, rather than being annoyed at clothes lying beside the laundry basket instead of in it or empty beer cans randomly left around the place, these are small inconveniences and the opposite would be the person is no longer around.
Yes, I know it doesn’t make it any less annoying, but hey it’s all perspective! So, my reminder in all of this is, life is really short and do we need to sweat the small stuff?
A wonderful way to help is definitely to have your journal beside your bed and write things you are grateful for each morning. As you do this over time, you realise the greatest pleasures are things that aren’t bought, but rather experiences, nature and those around you that make life worth being grateful for. Whether you are right where you want to be or not, keeping things in perspective and also realising what’s meant to be, will find a way. The power of surrendering to what is meant to be is another massive realisation that often comes after gratitude. We often want to pre-empt what steps we feel are needed in life to get to a destination and letting go of this is really hard, but necessary to flow with our life’s journey.
Many times, I have let go of needing to know these steps and that has paved the way for great things to transpire. It’s not to say we don’t have our own passions to follow and manifest, but we don’t try and micromanage the steps.
So today’s sharing is a reminder about not sweating the small stuff and embracing gratitude and surrender. You will see results straight away with these tools and to me that’s gold.
