I am writing this as a reminder to myself because recently I have forgotten something fundamental… We only live ONE LIFE. How many times will I have to repeat this to myself until it sinks in?? Why am I wasting my time worrying what others think of me or if I will make enough money, it doesn’t matter one bit!! I was lying in Savasana this morning thinking about the rest of my life, all the things I want to do don’t involve following the ‘normal’ path that most people take, but that is fucking ok!!! I can be different if I want too, I don’t have to chase after a degree and a high paying job that I HATE! Instead I want to chase after experience in life while I can! I was to go to Hawaii for 6 months and work on fruit farms and have an ADVENTURE. I want to go to India to learn more about yoga and live in an ashram and devote my life to the practice. I want to trek through mountains all across the world. I want to swim in all the seas. I want to take photos everywhere I go to remind me how bloody grateful I am that I am alive on this beautiful beautiful planet. That is what I want to do with my life and I am so excited for it all.
I have been lying in bed every night worrying about my future when really I should be excited for it! So what if I don’t have bucket loads of money. So what if my job isn’t ‘respected’ by others. As long as I am always constantly chasing my passions and dreams in life then I will be happy. As long as I believe in myself and trust. I know that I will be just fine.
So I am reminding myself to not worry about the future because of course it is going to be ok. In fact I know it is going to be more than ok, it is going to be bloody amazing, for all of us! So I chose to spend my time in the Now, in this moment that is actually happening and let the future handle itself…
