Are You Running from Something?

Running from Something

Imagine: It’s a typical morning, you wake up to your alarm and stumble through your morning routine.  Then you go through your morning routine with its meetings and other tension inducing activities.  You survive that only to endure a speedy but low nutrition lunch.

Then you go to your evening routine with a workout, shopping and dinner. Then you go to sleep. Pretty typical, right?

What Are You Hiding from?

It may not seem as if you are hiding from something. Anytime you view something as a routine and not embracing the gift of a new day, you are running. The routine has taken control of us. The routine is comfortable. Why is it so easy to lapse into the average?

  • Distancing from Past Pain

It may be that we are distancing ourselves from the pain of our own pasts. It could be the pain of an abusive lover, or the pain of other violations. The real violation is that we are allowing things in our past control our present life.  Remember that your life is a journey, not a destination.

Don’t allow the negativity of your past hurt you and bring you down. Allow your past to be a learning time and something that helps you to move forward but not something that holds you back.

  • Living the Process

Everything you do is part of the process. It’s your life, be a part of it. You can do this by grabbing a hold of your own destiny.  You are allowed to be loved as you are today.  You can nurture yourself by taking the time to enjoy your world.  You truly deserve it.

  • Being Successful in Life

You can be successful, and you can do the things that you want to do. You have every means necessary to be the best that you can be. Take time to look at your life and see what your destiny holds for you.

Allow yourself to learn new things, to handle your emotions with care and to work hard to live your best life. Love yourself and learn to love the life that you are living. Speak positively to yourself and to others and see how the universe can help you by embracing your positivity.

Make sure that you get rid of any negative feelings or thoughts that you have so that you can increase your energies and make things work to your good. Stop running from things that you cannot control and learn to live your life to the fullest!

So, take a minute to breathe. You are successful just by being part of your own life.  Enjoy it!
