Be... Are you who you want to be? Are you perhaps working towards that place... or are you stuck? Do you even have any idea of where you want to go in life... who you want to be? Or are you maybe in the wonderful position of being happy where you are? Perhaps some days things feel just right... and other days it’s all a bit of a struggle? I don’t think any of us lead a charmed life. We all have challenges and difficult days... We all have days where we doubt ourselves and perhaps find ourselves heading down a rabbit warren of worry. Sometimes this can give us a day of unease... other times it can be debilitating, life jarring. I suppose the trick (if you can call it that...) is to recognise when the day, the hour, the minute is a difficult one and know that it won’t last. A wonderful person I know often says, “It will be alright in the end and if it’s not alright... it’s not the end.” If we can find hope, find a safe place, a feeling of groundedness (is that a real word?!) in the darkest of times, perhaps we can ride the storm... Stopping, regrouping and just ‘being’ can help us to do this. And being able to do this comes only with practice, with perseverance. Accepting that this is a challenging moment and yet having the courage to keep on going is a matter of mindset, I think. And sometimes we can’t keep going... sometimes we need to pause, reflect, be kind to ourselves and rest. Then, we can begin again... Life isn’t always easy. None of us get it ‘right’ all the time... and that’s ok. Sometimes we need to just ‘be’.
