And one thing that can happen when you stop remembering the power of focus? You start living reactively.
That’s not what I’m wanting, that’s for sure.
So once again, changes are afoot. I’ve regained my focus, and I’m seeing the difference already. (It also could be spring. Spring affects me in very wonderful, mysterious ways.)
For one thing, when I wake up in the morning, I’m feeling very energized.
And the ideas! I’m never one to be without ideas in general, even when I forget myself, lose my focus and slip into gently reacting to everything. But now I’m just bustling with a ton of great ideas.
About my creativity.
About my writing.
About play and fun.
About my relationships.
About life in general, really. And it’s been a whole lot of fun. The only downside is that I have had to add a meditative half hour to my nightly routine, because when I go to bed filled with ideas, it is simply too hard to fall asleep!
So over the next few weeks, I’m going to be playing around with all these new ideas, getting clear about what it is that I want to do, and being open to inspired action.
And all it took was a little focus! And the first breezes of spring.
What about you? Have you been feeling like you’ve been emerging from the doldrums too? Do you see focus as a powerful life-changing tool?
