How many times have you thought to yourself, “I would be happy … if only”. That “if only” runs and ruins the lives of millions around the world.
“If only I were thinner, I’d be happy.”
“If only I were richer, I’d be happy.”
“If only I didn’t have these stretch-marks/student loan debt/boss, I’d be happy.”
If only. If only. If only.
It’s enough to make you want to curl up under the covers with a box of Godiva chocolates and stay there until the end of the world.
But there is another way.
Our philosophy is based upon the idea that what you do stems from who you believe you are. If you believe you are nothing more than some grey hairs and a bulging bottom, your actions will reflect this. Your self-care, commitment to wellness, joy and creativity are all directly linked to who you identify as in this moment. Not when you are thinner, shinier or richer or have more time. But right now.
You can either think of yourself as a drop of water in a glass: small, isolated, insignificant. Or you can think of yourself as a wave in the mighty ocean: powerful, expansive, connected to all there is in the world.
And when you begin to see yourself as part of something greater than yourself, you start to take those steps that bring you onto a lifelong path of spiritual fitness. Sanely. Practically. Sustainably. Mindfully.
One mindful action.
One mindful moment.
One mindful choice at a time.
