Every time I sit down and try to write something, I get blocked and don’t know what to say. It’s been a month since I last posted here, and it seems like it has been an eternity. So much has happened in the last 30 days, time keeps spinning on and on, and I’m just going along for the ride.
Rather than fill this space with sentences about how I’m feeling uninspired - I thought, why not try to do the exact opposite. So, in an effort to try something new around here (and to indulge my affinity for alliteration), I introduce to you - Monday Mantra.
Before someone says it, I know, "you're not supposed to share your mantra". To that I say, rules are made to be broken. If I'm being really honest, I don't like being told what to do, and I'm going to share and say what I want. However, mantras are incredibly personal - so you do whatever makes you feel good too, okay?
To start, I thought I would share one of my personal meditation mantras:
“I am exactly where I need to be.”
I hold these words close to my heart, for so many reasons. They are a constant reminder to be mindful and stay present in our lives. To live and love in the NOW, in this moment, rather than find ourselves stuck in the past, or longing for the future. This moment is all there is, and we don’t need to be anything, or anywhere else. We can get so caught up chasing our vision, our goals, that we lose sight of how amazing and magical the journey can be.
Honouring where we are in our practice, in our lives, and in our bodies right NOW is essential for our overall well-being. Remember, you are always exactly where you need to be, and in this moment you are a perfect, just as you are.
