“Don’t take your thoughts too seriously.”
– Eckhart Tolle –
We’re all guilty (myself included) of taking life, ourselves and our thoughts a little too seriously sometimes, and that’s OK. We’re human after all.
However, every now and then we need to be reminded to lighten up. Let go. Be kind to ourselves. Laugh a little. See the funny side of life or look for the silver lining in a situation. Because life is meant to be joyful, and light and easy.
I watched this great video the other day of Eckhart Tolle explaining how we shouldn’t take our thoughts too seriously. Of course, it’s one thing to say we’re going to do that, and quite another to actually do it. So this video is a great little 10 minute piece of inspiration and advice about how to exactly set about doing it.
And if something is feeling like it’s too hard, or too difficult. Stop for a second. Take a deep breath. Count to ten. Ask yourself whether you need to be taking it so seriously? Ask yourself if there is something simple and easy that you can do to make the situation nicer? Maybe ask someone for help? Or just simply decide to see the lighter side of life. After all, in the greater scheme of things we’re all generally pretty lucky with where we are in life, and things could be a lot worse.
So, whenever you’re next in a tricky spot, in that very moment, you can decide to lighten up and I promise you that things will seem a lot different.
Take care of yourself, take care of the now. Lighten up my darlings.
Sending you lots of love, hugs and light,
