How Often Do you Notice you are Dis-Trackted?
Our path in life is not always clear, actually it’s pretty unclear for most of us. For those of you who have worked out your main route (congratulations), you might notice though how often you get side-tracked, dis-track–ted, or even lost, but that’s all just perfectly how it’s meant to be.
Sometimes, it maybe just a little tiring not feeling on track, it might be like being pulled in different directions and even trodden on.
When we do slow down and take time out, how easy do you find it to be quiet and gentle on yourself? There’s always lots of other things we need to DO and our head is busy thinking about them… a wash to put on, a meal to cook, a blog to write, shopping to buy, kids to collect, paperwork to complete, an email to answer, a room to decorate, a lawn to mow, a car to hoover… I’ve met people who feel guilty if they sit down. It’s really important to allow yourself time out though, whatever it is that helps you to settle and quieten, to get back on one of your tracks.
Wake Up and Smell The Trees
Whichever path you are on, remember to look up and smell the trees, take time to pause and be gentle and kind to you.
It may help to visualise roots growing from your feet holding you strong and supporting you.
Take a few nice deep breathes to slow your pace and just notice.
Wherever I lay my path, that’s my home
Just imagine the path is running through you, down through your centre, it is you. You are the path. Where you are is your path. And by noticing where you and imagining this path, it may help you to stay more aligned with it and help you to place it gently onto the course you’d like it be on once more.
Everything is a perfect path, it’s OK to get sidetracked and distrackted all part of the twists and turns of life .
