Sometimes there is an underlying feeling that confronts our mind. “Am I living my life right?” Same old, an evil fear of living a wrong life! When it comes, we start to compare ourselves to others, calculate our failures vs. success and doubt our decisions. There is nothing worse than the feeling of doubting your own existence! This dilemma about right or wrong life leads us to seek distraction and re-assurance from others. We tend to procrastinate while we forget about this fear and feel better about ourselves again. This fear makes us weak while taking a decision and we hide behind the walls of ‘comfort zone.’ Is there anything abnormal about this process? The answer is no, but there is a way to get your mind back on track without relying on an outside source.
Next time when your mind is surrounded by the clouds of self-doubt, try this simple meditation: Pause for a moment, close your eyes, take few deep breaths and now open your eyes and look at your hands. Just look at yourself and see how you are enough, just as you are. There is no need of judging your past, and there is no need to be scared of your future. Live this present moment with confidence. What you sow today, you reap tomorrow. From today, start sowing truth, self-love, compassion, and kindness.
Whenever you feel down by anxiety and self-doubts, try pausing your thoughts for a moment. Seek fulfillment in that present moment when you are breathing; you will be able to conquer your fear of living a wrong life. There is no formula to live a right life which will lead you to happiness, and you will have to unfold the mystery with every moment.
I hope you will conquer the fear of living your life wrong and start breathing a feeling –
“I am enough.”
