It can be so tempting to try and anticipate the future. We can spend so much time in our heads worrying, imagining things that may or may not come and trying to figure out the best way to go.
But we can’t live for tomorrow. We have to live for today.
We can’t possibly know the future. So we’re wasting our time trying to work out what we might want and feel then. It’s impossible!
We can only follow what feels right in the moment.
You can’t have regrets if you know that you always followed what felt right at the time; if you trusted your instincts and went with your gut.
So follow love. Follow inspiration. Follow joy.
Be still and listen to the deeper wisdom that can be accessed through your body. What does your intuition tell you? Listen for the voice that comes from the deepest, wisest part of you. It’s always there waiting to be heard. But you have be still for long enough to hear it.
Your inner wisdom will always lead you true. It won’t tell you what to do in a year’s time or more. It won’t give you a detailed plan for the future. But it’ll tell you what to do right now. And that’s the only place any of us need to be.
How many times do we make longer term plans that end up changing anyway? Feeling in control provides a false sense of security. It feels good when we think we’re in control but it’s an illusion.
So be a fish. Let the current carry you. And use your instincts to change course as and when you need to.
Ask ‘What feels good right now?’ And the next time you come to a crossroads or need to make another decision ask ‘And what feels good now?’
You can check in as much as you need to with your intuition and inner wisdom; following the crumbs and letting go of the need to see the whole map.
Wait and see what information you have at the time and use it to plan for the immediate future. But beyond that let it go. Wait and see. Know that you’ll formulate the perfect plans as you go. Daydream about your future but don’t get stuck there.
If you stay in the moment, work hard and enjoy the rewards of that, other opportunities you never could have expected will come along. So don’t be limited by your current imagination.
Follow your body and the wisdom within it.
Where do your feet want to go right NOW?
What would make you feel freer and more relaxed right NOW?’
What does your heart want right NOW?
This will be so much more effective than constant analysing ever will! It’ll lead you to success.
Anytime you’re wondering or unsure simply come back and ask ‘what feels right and what feels most exciting right now?’
Don’t spend today worrying about tomorrow. Enjoy today and tomorrow will be take care of itself.
How much are you enjoying life NOW?
Don’t force and strain your way through today in the hope of a better tomorrow. Now is all we have. Live it.
