Poor little me

Stop for a moment…

Step away from our minds…

Stop thinking about all the terrible things, the injustice, the unfairness, what we want, what we don’t have, what someone said 5 years ago, what we look like, what others think of us…stop the story of ‘poor little me’.

Take a moment, notice our breathing, notice the surroundings we are in, notice the life within our bodies.

Now we are awake, conscious and aware…

Pause again…

Then be grateful for all that we have…

We can do this every moment of our life and step away forever from the mind-made story of ‘poor little me’.

Gratitude brings peace.

The pressure to do better

We are all capable at our own unique thing.

We are all doing well or at least at the level that we are at now and choose to be at.

Yes, we could all do even better, and who is to say that doing better matters?

It’s just a question of whether we want to or not.

If you are happy at your current level of doing something, then stay there and be happy.

If you want to be even better, we have to show up and do the work to get to the level we want.

However, there never is a right or wrong level to be at and we could choose to simply be happy where we are and ignore other people’s view of where we should be.

After all, it is all very subjective and often the levels we continually chase are set by others to ensure we comply and keep working to their ‘levels’ or ‘grades’.

There is so much more to life than constantly being dissatisfied with the level we are currently at.
