Have you noticed what happens when you start to think of the big picture, or what the future will bring? Or how you are going to handle things a year down the line? Or what something will look like in 6 months' time?
I know I do this and one of the most useful things I know to do is to bring myself back to the present moment. Can I cope with what is happening right now in this moment? Can I do what needs to be done right now?
I loved hearing Louise Hay's response when she was asked how she created the Hay House publishing company. 'I answered the phone, I opened my mail. I did what was in front of me.'
Even the hugest dreams and visions have to start, very simply, with small actions in the present moment.
Oh and I love this piece of Zen wisdom. It's why parents become Zen masters over the years. ;)
