these mountains

that you are
carrying, you were
only supposed to
climb.

Life was never meant to be a struggle, but we certainly dive in head first don't we? We take a fairly simple scenario and create huge complications. It's as if we WANT to have something to worry about. 

We take a trip down memory lane and sadness envelopes us. We wonder how on earth we will ever manage to buy a house in this economy and find ourselves obsessing about finances. The kids are not home on time and off we go on a tangent regarding all the terrible things that must have happened to them. 

All of this negative messaging is making mountains out of molehills, it's creating problems where none existed in the first place.

You are not living in the present.....
“If you are depressed you are living in the past. 

If you are anxious you are living in the future.
If you are at peace you are living in the present.”
- Lao Tzu

You are making your life a struggle, it's not necessary. The present, right now, this moment, is all you have. In order to be at peace, to feel safe and secure you need to live in the now. You were never meant to carry all the burdens of the world on your shoulders. Put them down, decide if they are real, imagined or even if they are yours to carry. Then work on letting them go. You don't want or need the stress. You are here to learn and grow, but also to enjoy your life. 

Climb the mountain, don't carry it around.
