It’s a warm summer night and I’m sitting by the pool. And I’m going to take a break from my usual posts. Being bored, lazy or unfocused can often be a negative. However, when it’s the right time and the right mental space…they can be a positive.
I am embracing the long warm summer days to practice being in the now. I hope that you all have an opportunity whether it’s during the lazy summer, the crisp colorful fall, the cold cozy winter, or the gentle rebirth of spring to be lazy, bored or unfocused.
If you can do this in a positive way….to embrace your surroundings, your environment, and those who share it with you…you can turn these seemingly negative adjectives into positives.
We can’t be lazy all of the time or we would never be a productive member of society. We can never be bored all of the time or we will lose interest in the important things that surround us. We can never be unfocused all of the time or we will not see the world and the good friends around us. But if we do not occasionally embrace the positive qualities of being lazy, bored or unfocused we can never truly embrace the now and be comfortable with ourselves.
This is either very profound or it’s inspired by the margarita I’m sipping by the pool. Either way, I hope that it gives you something to think about and something to perhaps strive for.
In the end…all we have is the now…the past is gone and the future is yet to be.
Joy & Love,
Goddess Mandy 🙂 XO
