Do you ever feel weary? When your soul is at a point that it feels as though you will never be rested? Not because you don’t sleep. Because you feel as though you cannot find your direction, your path, your future. There is so much emphasis put on life goals and planning for the future. I think we often forget that you can prepare as best you can, but the future is truly uncharted territory. None of us know what will happen in 5 minutes, much less 20 years. We need to make some preparations for life, but we also need to learn to be in the moment.
Sometimes the weariness in my soul comes from trying to have it all figured out now…
Sometimes we need to stop and just be. Knowing that the future will come soon enough. There is something beautiful about finding the present moment and being fully in it. Savoring the air, the raindrops, the twilight, or the laughter.
When we get so caught up in the future and we get tired all the way into our bones, the best remedy I have found is to stop and get grounded. Put my feet on the grass or the dirt… look to the sky and breathe.
Just thinking about it gives my soul energy.
