Fret Not, Relax

You wake up with a start to find it is way past your wake up time, you overslept! You should have been up an hour earlier. As usual, you had set the wake-up time alert on but somehow you did not hear it go or you are not the clock alerts type, your mind conditions itself on wake up time but today? What happened? You prepare in rush, even skipping some of your morning grooming routine. You dash out of the house, half way to the main gate, you instinctively feel for the wallet or the phone. It’s not there! You are so upset with yourself you can’t help but grumble under your breath. All the while you are thinking ‘I’m late’. You are even concocting your explanations for your action or inaction to those who matter, whom you are answerable to.

It is common to be off course some days, you get late. You get late for work, late for oh, that so important meeting, appointment etc.. The situation suggests worry, be upset, feel troubled.

All the worry and trouble you let flow within you because of such mishaps is not worth anything, it won’t change the situation. Fact remains, you are already late .No amount of worry will rewind time.

The best thing to do is relax, find composure within self, and maintain your calm.

‘What? How do I retain calmness, while my whole life depends on this? (that which you are late for)’ Really? Your life does not depend on that. Your life depends on life itself, that your heart is still beating, and you are still breathing, that comes from He who is the giver of life, the ultimate life’s sustainer! The rest are just channels of supporting it, making it more comfortable, more like what you think life should be and He is the source of that too.

When you are making up those explanations, rushing through everything, you are bound to get yourself into more trouble and may be even incur losses, a headache, frustration, a smashed glass just to mention a few.

No matter the circumstances, fret not, invite peace within and peace will be with you.
