WHY FEEL SORRY?

Some of my favorite quotes are quotes from  D.H. Lawrence.  The following two most especially:

“I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.”  He also said, “I want to live my life so that my nights are not full of regrets.”

Wow…I mean how much more do you need to know to realize that the answer to living a stress-free life is right in front of you everyday; everywhere in nature.  The next time you begin to feel stressed out or frustrated with your life or job or other factors, sit somewhere and observe animals and other of God’s creations, in nature, or even those you keep as pets, and watch how they flit from moment to moment, never looking back.  They look for food, mate, give birth, hunt and gather, and some nest.  We can’t know what they are thinking, but it becomes apparent when you watch them that they could care less about the moments behind them or the ones they will encounter in the future.  They are just here, in the now…and they know how to just be. 

We all possess this instinct and, given the society we are raised in and our parental upbringing, some of us are fortunate enough to have a handle on this simple yet very complex concept. 

Sometimes we have a habit of getting too deep or wrapped up on our own heads with that dreaded self-talk that all too often keeps us from the bliss of slumber.  Dwelling is telling…in other words dwelling on things all the time will almost always result in sadness, depression and/or regrets, which tells the world that you are a dweller.  On the flip side of that, always trying to project into the future brings frustration and anxiety. 

Sometimes we sit and feel sorry for the choices we did or didn’t make and worry about the outcome of those choices.  We stew in our own juices, so to speak.  NOT healthy.

Balance is the key to a healthy, happy, and successful life and all we have to do is take a cue from nature to learn how to successfully flit from moment to moment, doing things just for us, thereby resulting in feeling good and helping others as we go.  Love is most-often said to be the meaning of life, which I believe is true, but that love has to be genuine and to be genuine you need to know and love your life to the fullest and to achieve that, you need balance.  We are essentially alone as individuals, but we can share our lives with others if we so choose.  Balance will create bliss in our being able to share our lives successfully.

Try observing nature in its fullest when you begin to fall out of balance and as you do, be ever-conscious of the moments you are experiencing then and there.  No regrets, no worries…just be.
