Enjoy results

You’re a bit sleepy this morning, but that doesn’t explain the way you feel. For the first time in a long time, everything is fine in your life, and you are not used to it. It feels like something is off. It’s not. You just need to get used to feeling something else than pressure.

All your work has paid off, and now it’s time to benefit from the results. Don’t fret. You are allowed to sit for a while and appreciate all that you have done. Relax for a while, and enjoy the peace. This is a time when you must celebrate the results of your work. Remember that the work you did was meant to get you where you are now.

Too many times in life you did the work with such intensity that you forgot to appreciate the results. Life has everything. It is not meant to be full of hardship and pressure, full of things that are easy. You need to learn to see them all for what they are, moments in time. They are not supposed to be permanent, any of them.

That’s why it is important to focus on work when working and to relax when the work is done. Your mind and your body also need time to rest, because otherwise they become unreliable, and instead of helping, they’ll work against you.

So, take in the peace you feel. It is well earned. Replenish your energy and relax for now. It’s a good thing to have a short memory when things don’t go as planned. It clears up the mind and allows it to focus on what is in front of it.

So many times, you found it hard to move on when something bad, or just unexpected, happened in your life. This behavior is starting to take its toll on you. You have less energy for what you want to do because much of it was wasted in an attempt to change something that can no longer be changed.

No matter what happens, it is done. No amount of thinking or regret will ever change what already happened. A better use of your time and energy is to focus on what can be done from now on. What are your options?

When your life takes unexpected turns, learn to forget your failures as fast as possible. This means that you analyze what went wrong, learn what you can, and then move on, never second guessing your past decisions.

There is no point in trying to solve a problem that’s no longer solvable. All you’ll get out of it is a disconnect between what happens, and you. This will only increase the chances of going wrong in the future. Being wrong becomes an issue only when you keep making the same mistake over and over again because you failed to learn something.

Moving forward, remember the lessons you’ve been taught by your mistakes, but forget the mistakes as fast as possible. Leave them in the past and use them as fuel for your progress, and not like anchors that keep you stuck in place.
