I want changes. I want more things and I want new things. These things are not going to happen for me if I don’t make changes to allow for the new things to come into my life.
So it’s time for me to play with life. To play with my habits and routines so that I can add new habits and routines that will attract the new things that I want into my life.
I know my most productive time for creating is mornings and I want to be doing more creating than I currently am, so I’m going to play with doing some of my current morning routines later in the day and see where they could fit and allow more morning creative time for myself.
Some of the changes I want to play with will also be good for other things that I also want in my life. Being more physically active with my family and other activities that I can enjoy with my family rather than by myself.
I also like to play with life so that I don’t get stuck in being too comfortable and then resist change in my life.
Change is growth and expansion, and I like to be continually growing and expanding.
What do you want new in your life? What can you play with in your life to allow more room for what it is that you want?
do you spend your time in the past, future or in the present?
how do you spend your time? are you positive and grateful or are you negative and overwhelmed?
what do you do with time? doing things that are most important to you, or doing things because you are reacting to all that is around you?
is time going fast for you? is time going slow for you? are you aware of time?
as much as i want to, as much as i do, and as much as i want to do even more – being in present moment awareness – i’m still getting pulled along with time. part of it’s a summer thing, time always seems to go faster in the summer. why is that? what is it about some ‘times’, some ‘activities’ that seem to make time go faster, or the opposite, make time go slower.
living in present moment awareness is how i like to live. to live in present moment awareness i choose what makes me happy, i choose to do what’s most important to me. and in those moments, somehow time slows down, it becomes non-existent, or not important. i am able to not worry about time, i am able to be and do, and not be accountable to a time line.
what are you doing when you lose track of time? what are you doing when time seems to stand still? what activities help you to live in present moment awareness?
time to let go of time and live in present moment awareness!
Are you taking time for yourself? Relaxing activities and activities that rejuvenate you?
I know you are busy. I know you have a list, either written down or in your mind, of things that need to get done, should get done and could get done. I have a list, and if that’s all that is on my mind – I get overwhelmed and my energy drops.
I’ve learned that the most important items on my list are the things that I do to take care of myself, to connect with myself and to rejuvenate myself.
Do you have activities on your list that allow you to connect with yourself, rejuvenate yourself or that are giving you the attention to take care of yourself?
There’s a wide range of activities that you can do – what makes you smile? What gives you a relaxed peaceful feeling? What restores your positive energy?
A brisk walk
Watching a movie
A soak in the tub
A sports game
A personal growth activity
Reading a motivating book
A snowball fight
Walking on a beach
Climbing a tree
Taking a nap
Find something you love and/or refreshes you, add it to your list and do it today!
Time gets away from me. Does it get away from you? I get a to-do list that seems to be a mile long, I add more to the list than I cross off the list.
I get overwhelmed thinking about all I want to do, thinking about all I should do and thinking about all that I could do. I feel negative wanting, the lack of what I want to have and experience. I get overwhelmed and worried in the day, and doubting my goals and visions.
I think one step, two steps and ten steps ahead. I plan my day, trying to control every hour and minute from the time that I wake up in the morning and at night judge myself for all that I did not get done. I am not in the present moment.
Do you ever feel this way?
To get in the present moment and feeling positive wanting, belief and gratitude for your goals and visions:
Take a deep calming breath with your eyes closed. Center yourself, connect to yourself, or quiet your mind for a moment.
Prioritize what is most important to you in this day. Say ‘no’ to what you can to say ‘yes’ to what you want. Cross off activities that do not align with your values, goals and visions. Ask for help for the activities that you can.
Make yourself a priority so that you are in a state of wellbeing and can do all that you want to do. Take time for rest and rejuvenation. Take time for physical activity and mental/intellectual activities. Taking five minutes for yourself to quiet your mind or do something that you enjoy is rejuvenating. Taking time for physical activity releases stress. Taking time for yourself increases your positive energy and allows you to do what you want.
Celebrate and be grateful for all that you have done and accomplished.
Choose to be present in the moment. You can be aware of what you want to do in the day, being aware of what your next priority/activity is and be focused on your current activity with positive wanting, belief and gratitude. Be Present!
