It’s Okay to be Okay

This lesson may be just as, if not more, difficult to understand than “being okay with not being okay.” When things are going well for me, I find that I look for the “bad things” on the horizon. Why can I not be okay with what’s happening?

When life is going well, it’s as if I’m constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop. I find that my eyes are on the horizon, searching for any potential storms, pirates, tsunamis or other “dangers” that could threaten my happiness. What?! How does this even make sense? Instead of being grateful for where I am and enjoying what I do have, my eyes focus on the potential negatives.

We get what we look for. I’m searching for issues so guess what? Then I’m going to get more issues. Those potential issues then become my focus instead of enjoying the calm waters and sunny skies that surround me now.

So here today, I choose to redirect the focus to where I am now, and away from seeking threats that are outside of my safe harbor; that are also outside of my control. Putting down the binoculars, I can now focus on the present. Even if the present is impermanent.

I extend this wish out to each of you: May we each find the peace and comfort in where we are, even if it’s rough sometimes, even when it’s easy sometimes. Knowing that it is all transient: it will change, so let’s be okay with where we are today.

Note: This is different from complacency, this is about acceptance of what is. Only then can we choose to change course. ❤️

  1. And 99.9 percent of those things never happen, and all we do is stress and tire ourselves out. Our expectations are the culprits, change their flavors of what drives them and we are free ❤
    Great post Tiffany, now about that ice cream you've been expecting 😀

      1. Sorry for delay, I’ve lost all my email connections and been off air for a couple of days. I was wondering why I hadn’t received any comments for a bit 😀
        Anticipated grief just about sums it up. Besides that, going well kind lady, as are you I hope ❤

      2. Didn’t notice a delay! Glad to hear you’re well.
        I’m doing well, too. It’s been more smooth than I’ve felt in a while. Still some rough edges. 😊 Thank you for asking!
