It's all about the little things...

You know, I have heard of the saying, "Don't sweat the small stuff" (I think there is even a book about this too??) and while I agree with the sentiment that worrying, stressing or feeling anxious about the "small stuff" is totally destructive and distracting, I do want to point out, that it is the small stuff, moment by moment, minute by minute, that all adds up like drops of water forming a puddle.

The way I get through those difficult moments, whether it is an awkward five minute conversation I wish I wasn't involved in, or a few years where nothing seems to be going anywhere or doing anything, is to focus on each little bit and get through that. Add up all those small things, and all of a sudden you are miles down the road just by putting one foot in front of the other...

Have I used enough clich├ęs yet *smile*

So, "Don't sweat the small stuff" focus on it instead and pour loving energy into the small stuff, because that's how BIG stuff happens...a moment at a time.

During that awkward conversation, smile, focus on getting your breathing right (deep down to the bottom of your lungs...try picturing this as you breathe) and before you know it, the conversation is finished. When those more prolonged moments come along, I have "gotten through" them by focusing on a minute at a time on some days. Make a list of things to do, do one thing off the list, do the next thing, and the next, and the next...don't think about the other things on the list and how soon you may have to do them, just pour all your energy into the one thing you can do in that moment, love the moment, embrace the second where you feel light and happy, and then the next moment comes along and love that one too. As each moment is loved and passed, the next one seems to come even more quickly and pass even more and enjoyment have the ability to change the passage of time you know...then all of a sudden ALL of the moments seem light and love-filled..woohooooo!

Focus your energy on being courteous, kind, loving, non-judgemental, the best you, happy, compassionate, empathetic, all of those things and watch your journey accelerate faster than you EVER thought possible. After all, this is our communal life purpose; kindness, love and joy. Feel it, be it, spread it around...and it all happens through the small stuff.

With love and light
