It’s day two of positive affirmations to see you through the day.
Sometimes, like today, I am finding it hard to focus on the now. The reason is, as I write this my mum is going on her own to the clinic to have her annual osteoporosis infusion.
As someone who healed their bones naturally, I see this as mum filling her body with poison, but and this is important, I completely respect her decision.
I have however told her off. Can you imagine that, a daughter telling their mum off for getting medical treatment.
But there is a good reason. The poison makes mum feel ill for a while after. And right now she is in the vulnerable category and I would rather she didn’t go in a taxi to the hospital.
However, she has chosen to go and I am already future projecting. Try as I might I want to focus on the now, but I am already there in spirit with a mum who is not well.
So, while last year, I took a week off to cook, run around and entertain her, with the current lockdown rules I am not allowed to drive to her.
My day two quote is so apt for today. I do have to remember this.
There is only ever the present moment
It is easy to stay trapped in the past and in a circle of endless life roundabouts by worrying about the future. It’s not always easy focusing on the present. If you can, you will become more grounded and balanced, which will lead to inner peace and harmony.
Normally I can. Today I am breathing through this. I’ll find out over the next few days how she manages by herself. All I can do is repeat my affirmation and wait to hear.
One thing is for certain, I know where I get my stubborn streak from – thanks mum.
Today I am
Today I am focusing on the now.
Write in your journal about where you find yourself right now. Look around, put a stake in the ground and view your life. What three things are you grateful for?
I am grateful that I can stay in touch with my mum because of amazing technology
I am grateful that mum has friends who will come and shop for her over the next week. She hasn’t told the one special friend yet about the infusion, because she says being told off by me is bad enough… Regardless, I am happy that once she confesses she will get help
I am grateful strangely that my mum feels safer having the infusion rather than not. This positive attitude will help her to assimilate it
