It’s not that I think life’s passing me by. It’s more like I sometimes feel as if I’m passing life by. I don’t want to be that person who sits in my golden years with thoughts of what might have been had I not been passing life by and other regrets.
Have you seen the Kit Kat advert (see below) with the skating Pandas? There’s a photographer waiting to capture the Panda’s doing something special. His camera’s set up, but he’s blissfully enjoying his chocolate bar.
Meanwhile, behind him the Pandas emerge to skate, dance and perform un-Panda-like tricks. As the photographer turns, the Pandas are nowhere to be seen. Totally unaware of what’s occurred, he resumes his position behind the camera to wait.
And that’s where I come in. Some days I can’t help wondering what’s going on behind the scenes in my own life. Don’t get me wrong. I have a wonderful life with gentle ups and downs. I know how blessed I am.
Having reached this stage, I know anyone can reach it too. And I want to share, I just don’t know the best way to do so. Is the best way something I haven’t explored yet? How will I know? Some days the don’t knows overtake the do knows.
And so I continue to write, to share little seeds of love and happiness for Inner Well Being, in the hope that others will be inspired to open their own doors to clarity.
Over the years I’ve tried everything that came my way. An article that lead to a workshop, a chance remark that got me investigating further, book after book, a lifetime of soul searching adventures.
And best of all, I found peace of mind plus an Inner Well Being that steers me through the kaleidoscope of life.
But some days I wonder if I could add a little more to my words that would magically open the doors to freedom for others. Have I missed anything? How can I provide a better service?
Luckily for me I know that if I sit with those thoughts eventually they will drift out of my consciousness. To be replaced with the certainty and knowledge that I’m giving it my best shot.
There may be heap of life passing me by, but I don’t intend to have any regrets. Life’s far too short for dwelling on the might have beens. Instead I intend to focus my energy on identifying the miracles that show up. Truly, life doesn’t get much better than this.
