This year I decided to blog—for the 1st time. I wanted to share my story; a journey that began with a curiosity, now has turned into my passion. I am a Holistic Health Coach and I teach people how to live life with abundance. Just like you, my story has lot of twist and turns, drama, boatloads of lessons-learned and god knows –full of hit and misses. But one thing that has remained constant is my intent to succeed to love and live life to the fullest. And that intent comes from the fact that I approach life –one day at a time. I don’t plan it. If the tides are taking me downstream, I don’t fight it. I don’t steer my boat upstream. This is because I know I will catch a good current soon.
Sure, we all lead a busy life with jobs, families and umpteen numbers of things we sign up for. And, as we continue to complicate things, life happens. We look to capture key milestones but miss out the day-to-day miracles.
Looking back at 2016, life brought me many surprise packages. Through every interaction, I learnt about the power of intentions, prayers, synchronicity, abundance, curiosity and above all--the power of Belief. There also came a time in the last 3-4 months where life became frantically busy for me. But I truly believed in the magic called LIFE: waking up every morning and wondering who was I going to meet today that will move me one step closer or forward in my journey? Who is going to answer my questions of the day, could be about life, spirituality or anything and everything? I looked for this joy in every conversation, even some difficult ones which taught me great deal about myself. And believe me, those are not easy to deal with especially if family is involved. I had to ask myself: am I going to lead life fully with no regrets or hold back and take this beautiful, awe-inspiring Life for granted? Life can change in a moment, regardless of age, color, gender or religion. All your dreams and aspirations can be shattered within seconds.
So I ask you: are you going to waste your time blaming everyone and/or every situation? Are you going to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the present? The answer lies in you. Shed the blame; stop carrying the load of yesterday, the pressure of tomorrow and focus on the present moment and this magnificent gift called Life. If not, eventually, it will consume you and manifest in the form of Dis-ease or Dis-Ability. As cliché as it sounds, living in the moment without guilt, anger, resentment, judgment, expectations, and changing your attitude, perspective or the way you see things will change your life forever.
As you start your new year, question to ask yourself is: How am I going to live in the present moment this year?
Here are some suggestions to help you live in the now:
Above all be Grateful for everything, everyone and for this very moment!!
