Sometimes life just sucks. You are totally bored with the everyday drudge of commute, work, commute. Your boss doesn’t get you. You don’t get the company. The same route to the office, day in, day out. And the weather. I could go on.
Life would be so much better if you could just escape for a few weeks: go some place warm; go some place where you can find peace; go some place where you can shut out everything that is causing you anxiety and stress.
But here’s the thing: you take your anxiety wherever you go. There is no escaping it.
You will be in a constant state of anxiety: when you try to get away from the things causing you stress; when you hold tight to the things that make you happy.
It is far more practical to relax with the things that are stressing you out; to relax with your life as it is, right now.
The immediate benefit of relaxing into your reality will be an overarching sense of ease in your life.
The path to peacefulness is counterintuitive. Instead of running from your current life, run toward and into everything.
You will discover that peace is not found at some exotic location.
Peace is right here, with you. And as a bonus: you can return to it anytime you like.
