Embrace the Woo-Woo

Hands up in you're not really into this 'woo-woo' stuff...

As a super regular, relatively 'normal' person, when I first came across this mindfulness stuff I too was all 'that's for weirdo hippy freaks and I don't like incense' and went back to being all lost, confused and disillusioned my life thinking I knew better.

Unsurprisingly my quarter life crisis got more and more annoying and as this happened more and more books, podcasts, random conversations and the like kept coming my way about mindfulness, the universe and all this 'woo-woo' stuff.

Eventually I decided to pay attention, try something totally new and I am grateful every single day that I did because I learned the key to living the best life ever.

I still struggle with this whole 'woo-woo' thing from time to time because these ideas aren't particularly mainstream (although they are becoming more so) and who wants to be different, even if it does mean an epic, amazing life?

It took me years to start a meditation practice (which can literally be as simple as sitting in your car and just concentrating on your breath for 5 minutes before you drive anywhere...which is generally what I do) because again I figured my lack of wind chimes and the soothing sounds of dolphin calls on my iPhone meant it wasn't for me. 

In those times I remind myself that I'm here to live my life in a way that makes me happy, not to exist just to fit in. And when it comes down to it, you can live mindfully and think whatever you want about life without having to scream it from the rooftops.

It is your own personal and private journey. It's up to you how you live your life.


Even though I've accepted a totally new way of viewing myself and the world around me, I still don't consider myself to be any less normal or regular than I ever have been. I'm just a super blessed, WAY happier, more at peace version of myself that's also living a life that I now seriously love!

The beautiful thing about all this is that when you're ready to learn this stuff, it will appear in your life (like right now HINT HINT!!!) and will keep appearing until you take notice. You may also have super fun stuff happen like say, a quarter life crisis, to make you sit up and REALLY take notice. 

And if this is you now, you are seriously one of the lucky ones! Pay attention, go with it and try something new, because that's how you get all the good stuff that you want. 

And remember that you don't have to become a woo-woo hippie freak in the process of accepting it all. You can still be you! So go forth without any fear and if it helps, know that I'm right here beside you doing the same thing.
