Recently I was feeling restless and on edge. I was contemplating taking a new job and wondering if I was on the right track with my coaching business. All these thoughts and questions were madly swirling around in my head. I knew I had to do something in order to bring a sense of calmness to my life.
I ended up sitting by the water because I always feel more relaxed when I am connecting with nature. During that time I just sat and allowed the ebb and flow of the water to soothe my frenzied self, I felt completely at peace and very much in a state of joy. It was in the stillness of the moment that I once again become one with the present moment. Instead of worrying and questioning about what might be, I accepted what was. I trusted that the universe was unfolding just as it should and the answers would come when the time was right.
As I sat in the meditative state a song called "Be Still My Soul" came to mind. This song is a reminder that peace can only be found when we are literally still. Whether it's meditation, yoga, quiet walks in nature, or taking a day off from email and TV, we need time to decompress and connect with our most authentic selves. Insight, inspiration, and happiness comes when we make a concerted effort to "plug-in" to the truth within.
