Reflection for Mindfulness | Acheloa Wellness
Life is a fleeting moment. There are days, more often than not, when we’re living our routine: another day at the same miserable job, another load of laundry, another trivial distraction. Other days, we wake up with news that something big happened. Something devastating. Someone you love unexpectedly is in the hospital; a family member passes away.
Somehow we’re okay watching death during a movie or on the latest episode of CSI, but when it personally affects us, we are somehow reminded that we’re not invincible. When we’re faced with disaster, we begin to look inward. Not sure if it’s denial, or if it’s something we subconsciously choose to ignore, but the truth is that we’re all going to die. Everyone we love, everything we have will one day be gone. Although this may seem grim, maybe we can take a moment to realize the glass is still half full: we’re still alive today. We still have memories to make and we still have time to craft our future.
Time to make a change
If you’re reading this, then you still have a shot to make a difference and live out your dream. It may seem distant, but now’s the time to be awakened. It’s never too late for a change; it’s never too late to start anew. Regardless of age, race, gender, or circumstance, your time is now.
Start with a goal and brainstorm how to accomplish it.
Link with a mentor or life coach who can help you set your dream in motion.
Make a commitment to yourself; don’t let another tragedy or distraction hold you back.
Find your support network, and use them for support. In times of trouble, they’ll step up. If you don’t already know who they are, you’ll soon find out.
