I am OK.
In last week’s Mindfulness Mondays post, I previewed my Five Agreements. For the next five weeks, I am going to flesh each one out in turn. The first agreement I made with myself is to fully embrace the fact that “I am ok.”
The basic premise of this agreement is pretty simple. Every time I feel inclined to worry about something. Each moment where I feel like I want something I do not currently have. And each time I view someone else’s life from the outside thinking somehow they have it better than me, or easier than me, I will embrace the fact that I am ok.
I am right where I’m supposed to be. If I weren’t, I’d be somewhere else. I have enough [fill in the blank with material things here] and then some. I am safe and secure and loved. I am ok. Right here. Right now.
Thx for this. I always wondered whether it was the human condition to always want more, to strive for better, or if it was a characteristic of specific societies. After all, it has been or combination of trying to make things easier and or creativity that had resulted in all of our wonderful inventions
… Including the wheel. It is definitely hard to say ‘I am ok’ right where I am, with all that I have now.
