17. Harness the Energy

“The energy of the mind is the essence of life.” – Aristotle

Energy is an important part of our life. We are consistently using energy during our waking hours. The last few days I have been spending a lot of my time looking for a new living situation in a city I have just moved to. When I am not looking for a new place I am spending a lot of mental energy thinking about it. I realize that I can only control so much, and my energy used to worry about anything I cannot control is not a good use of resources.

Tonight I was coming home from dinner, and I was in a hurry to get home, so I could take care of some business. I did not get back nearly as quickly as I would have liked, and the worry of being too late over took me. I started to focus on my breathing, and tried to relax. In the end all was taken care of, and the out come I was so worried about did not come to pass.

What area of your life is taking up too much of your time and energy? Are you taking care of the things you can control and leaving the results to end up how they may?

Affirmation: I use my energy in a positive way. The good that occurs in my life makes way for the good in other peoples lives. Thank you Life!

Call to Action: Share one thing that you are using your energy for that is giving you life. Also talk about where you might refocus your energy in some area of your life.
