This is my view when I landed in Dunedin. Totally calming right? But no, heck I was a nervous wreck. I got a call from Manila and I was advised that there "might" be some delays with our shipment.The usual stuff. Why oh why ?! Delays in shipment means more money wasted and time lost. And I had to get through the day, not focusing on the meetings at hand but worrying. I think this worrying will cut my life expectancy in half! My other half always remind me what Winston Churchill quoted about worrying too much...
“When I look back on all these worries, I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he had had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which had never happened”
― Winston S. Churchill
And so why do we worry so much? I think its normal as human beings. We think too far and panic. And imagine all the bad things that can possibly happen . Sounds familiar right? I asked myself, how can i be better at this. I did some research and one of the key things that I lack is meditating. Somehow that sounds so foreign to me. I did a lot of Yoga but never really meditated. Anyway i tried to give it a go. I looked at several Apps and found Calm and HeadSpace. Guess what??! I cant even last 3 minutes in being still while breathing and meditating! hahaha but you get my point right? And that is the reason I am blogging about this. No matter how healthy we eat and our body is fit, our soul also needs nourishment. Maybe you get a sense of calm when you go to church, or take a walk or ran. But whatever it is, I think meditating and giving ourselves a few minutes a day will make a huge difference.
Have a great week all!
