“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people don’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
It’s so easy to get overwhelmed, especially with a never ending to-do list that keeps growing. Ever feel like there’s so much to do and you don’t even know where to start? I know I have!
Today I was teaching my oldest daughter how to drop & kick the ball. In the beginning she was kicking before even dropping the ball because she was so preoccupied with the next step. Once I told her to take it ONE THING AT A TIME she started dropping the ball and then kicking it perfectly.
How many times do we do this in life? Before we even finish our current task were already onto the next. Before this days over we’re already stressing about tomorrow. Or the next week, or month, or year.
What would happen if we were to focus on RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW?
I think things would run a lot more smoothly for us.
Simplest way to do one thing at a time is to stay present in whatever you’re doing, and that can be easily accomplished through breathing and a reminder to take it one thing at a time.
What ONE thing will you give your attention to? Mine is reading a book I’ve been very excited about getting into!
