The beauty of questioning, discovering and understanding during the weekly shopping trip

Do you ever feel really “off?”

Do you ever feel like something isn’t quite right but you can’t quite put your finger on it?

Do you ever feel like you’re off balance, even though you’re uncertain of what that even means?

I was ‘driving’ the shopping trolley today and thinking about these questions.

Just like the trolley I picked up today, with wheels out of alignment, annoyingly pulling me left or right instead of staying on course, when we are living out of alignment, we are essentially doing the same thing. We are fighting against ourselves and going against the direction of our natural self.

With the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it’s really easy to slip out of alignment, and more often than not.

The reality is we all know what’s best for ourselves. Deep down we all know what we should be doing but it’s easy to get caught up in the “doing” part and not actually doing anything at all.

I know that when I picked a trolley with woobling and out of alignment wheels, the quicker I walk the difficult it is to control it.

I know that if I just slow down enough that would allow me to be in control.

It is the same in our lives.

To live in alignment, we simply have to let go of beliefs and ideas about how things should be, we simply have to slow down a bit – so that we can naturally interact with what is, so we can have a different perspective, so we can control your ‘trolley’direction.

When it feels like everything is happening all at once, when it feels like you’re getting overwhelmed, stressed and anxious, when you feel that those wheels are taking you in the wrong direction, sometimes the best thing to do is nothing, stop, slow down, unwind, and really allow yourself to be seen and heard, allow yourself to truly focus on what’s going right.
