Living in the Moment

I no sooner released my message last week about not rushing when I was hit with an onslaught of work! I'm changing list servers and had a lot of work to do as a result of that, and also found out doesn't do two-cd sets, so I ended up making my own for the aura hygiene class. Anyway, it was a busy week and I was forced to really remember what I preach! I breathed deeply, relaxed, and trusted. It worked! Things are falling into greater order again, and I took a much needed break this weekend and refreshed my spirit in spite of it all.

I feel so blessed these days. I have been practicing living each moment fully, being patient about getting my goals accomplished, and praying with gratitude for my life. I have a tendency to want to get things accomplished NOW, and having to pace myself to finish these books is forcing me to slow down, to trust the process, and to enjoy life along the way. I can't believe I lived for so many years forcing myself to adhere to artificial deadlines and trying to make sure I was always on top of everything. In my past, the more I got done, the more there was to do. In my present, that is true as well, but somehow it doesn't bother me. As the angels once said, "You have eternity Ann. You really ought to learn to enjoy each moment... eternity is a long time!" Its true! We live on after death and we'll always have goals, even in heaven! So we may as well learn to slow down, cherish the moments, be true to ourselves, and TRUST that everything that is of real value in our lives will get accomplished.

I'll get these books done, and you'll get your dreams accomplished too if we take them one step at a time. Go easy on yourself this week. Ditch useless artificial deadlines and ask yourself what you really cherish in life. Amazing how the same life takes on a different character when we change our focus like this.
