It's Okay, Not To Be Okay
Are you feeling a little off? Not feeling like yourself and you can't quit put your finger on it? Are you having trouble finding any joy or happiness in life? It's okay. You, and millions of others are feeling the same way. It's okay, not to be okay.
Where Are You Living?
So many of us are going at such a speed everyday, physically and mentally, that we are not living in the moment. We are busy thinking about the past, and what could have been, or the future and what might be. All of this thinking outside the present moment, is what is leading to this. Happiness, joy and meaningful living are happening in the present moment. This way of thinking didn't just happen today or last week, but has been going on for months, if not years.
The Past And The Future
What does living in the past and living in the future get you? Living in the past will bring you feelings of depression and living in the future will bring you feelings of anxiety. I share this with you from personal experience. I have lived a great deal of my life in both places and therefore have dealt with extensive anxiety and depression.
What does the present moment offer? This is where life is happening. This is where the magic is. It's happening right here, right now. When you live in this present moment, those feelings of anxiety and depression will fade away and they are replaced with emotions like joy and happiness. There is great power in this present moment, and it's all we really have.
Please know, it's okay, not to be okay. It's okay to have these feeling and emotions, but please know they don't have to be permanent. You are not destined to live with these emotions all day every day. Peace, love and joy are attainable, and are waiting for you in the present moment. Take a deep breath, look down at your feet, and be aware that this is where life is happening. The magic of life is in this moment. Are you ready to seize it?
