on I've been thinking a great deal about where my focus is these days. It seems to be all over the place. One day I'm focusing on abundance, the next I'm focusing on healing, then I'm focusing on my life's purpose. Heavens, how many things can we focus?
As we are all aware, what we focus on is what we manifest. Maybe that's not how you word it, but it's the same thing. Have you noticed it? How focusing on what you don't want brings you more of what you don't want? It has taken me YEARS to realize this, but truthfully, only the last few. I'm not certain age brings wisdom, but I can attest to this truth, and that is age brings on for many the realization that life is WAY too short to be focusing on all the "unwanted things". I know we learn from those challenges. I am also learning to ask God for the grace to get through whatever lesson it is that I need to learn. Often, I ask for me to learn it quickly; that way I can move on the good stuff on the other side.
I think one of my biggest challenges nowadays is to keep focused on the goal. So, I will ask you what I ask myself-- What is the goal? Have you made plans on how you will reach the goal? Are the steps you have put in place measurable and realistic? Just an example, at my age, for those who don't know, I'm in my 60s; is I would like to be more toned and agile. Is that a measurable goal? Sure it is. I would also like to have the body and muscle tone I had when I was in my 20s and 30s. Is that realistic? No, I can achieve much, but I cannot turn back the clock. So, I have to focus on what I can achieve. For me with this goal, it is to be more toned and more flexible. So, I work out and I do Yoga. However, those aren't my only goals or dreams, if that's what you want to call it.
I would also like to be more fiscally frugal. And I can tell you that God blesses me abundantly with prosperity. I have enough. I am truly grateful for the fact that my bills are paid timely, and I'm whittling things down. I'm not debt free just yet, but that is one thing on which I am focused. I watch what I spend, another achievement for me. I take care of myself to keep me healthy. That also means pampering myself from time to time. So my focus is to be as healthy as I can possibly be.
So, now the trick will be to BALANCE all the different aspects of my life and stay focused on the goals. I guess, balancing is a skill. I must remember to be gentle with myself as I learn this skill. Realistically, you cannot focus on EVERYTHING at the same time, but you can focus on one thing at a time for a period of time, then put that aside to focus on something else. See, I just figured out how to balance while writing to you all.
Stay focused!!! Sending you all Love, Light, Peace, and Joy!!!
I'm just an ordinary person on my path to enlightenment. I enjoy learning, and lately I'm learning how to enjoy the challenges that present themselves as opportunities for me to grow. I hope that you find encouragement and inspiration through this blog.
