Something suddenly occurred to me last night. I have accomplished every single thing I have set out to do since I got to this country. I got a teaching job, I got QTS, I got out of the classroom, I got ACLIP. I got my UK citizenship. And yet at the outset of each of these accomplishments, I felt just as worried and anxious as I do now at the outset of this one. For some of them, the path was a trail of tears, for others a matter of getting it done. But in all cases, I have accomplished what I set out to do.
Now what's to make me think I can't get my driving licence by October? I can and I will.
The key to getting through these trials has been for me to remember present moment living. I must keep my head out of the past and the future and in the present moment. As the moments pass, I get closer to my goal, but by keeping myself in the present, I avoid worrying too much about it all. So...
When I'm at work I'm at work, and know I am working. When I'm typing, I type, and know I am typing. When I'm eating, I eat, and know I am eating. And when I'm driving, I drive, and know I am driving. And in the midst of each moment, I breathe, and know I am breathing. The breath is the key. I will breathe through each moment and will get my driving licence.
[Oh, by the way, I am still on day one of my Complaint-Free challenge! I haven't had a complaint-free day yet...but I did have a day where I switched the bracelet only 2 or 3 times, so that is an improvement!]
May all beings be at ease.
