A nurturing place for people who can't sleep

“Throw off yesterday as a snake sheds its skin”- Joseph Campbell


Regret. Worry. Mistakes. Woulda Coulda Shoulda…. this is the stuff of angst filled days and sleepless nights.

For years I did this to myself. It is not a good place to be in.

Here are four things to focus on:

1. Be in the present (there are lot’s of good books out there on this subject such as Eckart Tolle’s Power of Now).

2. Practice acceptance and just let it go. Surrender. Sometimes “letting go and letting God” is the best  thing to do for our peace of mind especially if it is circumstances that are beyond our control.

3. Practice forgiveness. Forgive yourself, Forgive your parents, Forgive exes. Forgive politicians.  Forgive former employers. Forgive bullies from our childhood. We are all doing the best we can at the time with what we have. Let it go. The past need no longer hurt us if we no longer give it any power.

4. Practice appreciation for all the blessings we have now. What we appreciate appreciates.
