How did I miss that moment?!

Far out, my head has been in a daze the last few weeks….

I just realised in my training session with Steve this morning how “un-present” I have been.

(At the end of our session whilst he’s stretching me….)

Me: 
Can you stretch out my chest please…?

Steve:
Sure, you want me to stretch it again?

Me:
Did you already stretch it?

Awkward pause as he looks at me to see if I was kidding.

Me: How did I miss that moment?!!!  How can I not remember you doing that!!!

A Chest Stretch is a good 15 seconds and I had no memory of it just happening….!!!

Mindfulness.

The act of being “in the moment” and living there.

Not in the past or the future.

Right here, right now, where ever that is for you.

We can get so caught up in “stuff” that we can miss the opportunity that life presents us in each moment.

I realised on my drive to zenergy today that I’ve been off with the fairies and needed to refocus with a “pick me up”

Not the caffeine kind, but the…”Yes it is busy at the moment with the kids, business, my own training and life in general, and even though you are feeling tired and a little defeated, it’s not always going to be like this and you know that you CAN do this!”

So, I did what I always do in that moment after my own little pep-talk, and looked for some inspiration in YOUTUBE to shift my focus.

When you are working on your goals, training hard and things just don’t feel like they are happening – be patient.  Things ARE happening and getting frustrated and upset doesn’t help!

It’s important to STOP and take a moment to re-focus, get back on track and carry on….

Like sharpening the saw really…(Thanks Mr.Covey for this one…it is the 7th Habit in his book “7 Habits of Highly Effective People)

So this morning I stopped.

I spent (actually a better word would be invested) a few minutes on sharpening my “saw” and I’m so glad I did.

 

Here’s what I watched to get my edge back….

Michael Buble moment with a fan…
A lesson in taking risks, doing things that are uncomfortable and embracing this uncomfortable feeling rather than running from it….!

Black Eyed Peas *live* with Oprah
Be YOU and only that, because there is no other YOU out there in the universe and YOU are the only one that is really good at being YOU!!!

I hope they made you smile like they did for me and maybe gave you a little extra edge to your saw.
