I moved house. On moving as an exercise in mindfulness later, what this meant however was that a) I got thrust out of my oh so comfortable routine, b) I suddenly had an even longer to do list and even less time to do it all. STRESSFUL, right?
When you are out of your comfort zone, facing uncertainty and under stress, life can suddenly seem daunting and bleak. Everything is a problem and everything is a drag. My commute is longer and more fragmented, it’s dark outside most of the time and you wonder how you ended up in this mess and what the hell to do next. Full on victim mode.
Whenever I am dealing with a difficult situation and when I go into the victim mode, I remind myself this:
ACCEPT IT AS IF YOU CHOSE IT
Transcend through acceptance, through overcoming resistance. Difficult situation? Which difficult situation? And back to the lightness of being… Thank you, Eckhart Tolle.
