Ever feel like everything seems to be all happening at once or not at all?
Life tends to be moving too fast and feels scary or too slow and feels stuck; both leave us feeling disconnected and discontent
Rarely is life moving at a pace in which we are thrilled ~ let alone, when it does, have it stay that way for long.
So what do you do when life is moving at a pace that makes you uncomfortable?
Here are 3 things to consider when you are frustrated with life’s pace:
Get comfortable with the uncomfortable.
Life has an ebb and flow to it and trying to control that flow is like trying to control the waves of the ocean.
Instead of fighting the waves (can you imagine us in bathing suits with a sword and shield at the beach..haha!)
Try surfing them. Have you ever noticed how calm surfers are?
It’s because they have learned the secret of going with the flow of life and having fun while riding the waves the ocean gives them.
Be the calm.
Create the energy you want to feel regardless of what is happening outside of you.
In keeping with the ocean analogy, it is important to notice that it is only the surface that has waves and is full of movement. In the depths, it is calm and serene.
You can choose which energy to use in any moment ~ ride the wave (ease + action), thrash in the wake (struggle) or be in the calm (ease + stillness).
Stay in the present moment and the present moment ALWAYS changes
Life is lived in the present moment. You’ve heard all the spiritual teacher say this…because it is true.
Time is in the 4th dimension and since you are living in a 3rd dimension reality (which is transcending to a 5th dimension…another topic for another time) you have the experience of time.
If in the moment, you can step back to see the big picture, you will see that what you are experiencing right now is a small part of your big journey. There is a bigger purpose for what is happening in your life. A preparation for your next step. If you can learn to embrace each part of the journey, the fast, slow and in between, it will make it a lot more fun and before you know it…things will shift again.
