opportunities in your head
a shift in thinking
Everything is a practice: the words you read and the humans you interact with and the way you move your body and how you choose to spend your time and the thoughts you think.
The thoughts you think: this last one has been sitting with me me recently. As I focus my time on the new layer of my career, I’m learning more and more about the beautiful control we can have over our thoughts. A thought is just a thought, it’s not who you are and it’s not reality and you don’t have to let it take up space in your mind (!!)
I ask myself why I spent the last few years allowing negative thoughts to spiral and manifest in unhealthy ways.
All the time you wasted! I scold myself.
And then I remember, this too is a thought and it’s settled securely in the past.
So I look around - what’s happening in my present?
My dog’s head is softly resting on the arm of the couch. His sweet eyes are gently closed and I know his powerful nose can smell the detergent I used to wash the canvas cover yesterday afternoon.
The coffee my partner made this morning is lukewarm and strong when it swishes in my mouth. I’m getting towards the end of my cup and I wonder if I should make another.
The sun is just beginning to cast shadows across my wooden floors signaling a fresh day, a fresh season, an opportunity.
Every thought is an opportunity. The endless, spacious possibilities!
May we all experience the spaciousness to see our thoughts as the beautiful opportunities they are.
