The Drunk Monkey is always trying to keep you away from things that might be uncomfortable. Your new goals and dreams ARE going to be uncomfortable. New isn’t easy to experience because it’s different, unusual and weird. Your new goals and dreams are unknown and therefore disconcerting to the mind.
The way forward is the present moment. The future is dark and scary to The Drunk Monkey (your mind), the present moment is a flashlight that you are shining into the future to see what is there.
Today practice gratitude, appreciation, and practice understanding today. Notice the beauty around you. Pay attention to the fact that all is well in this moment. The future isn’t coming the way your mind thinks it is. Quit allowing The Drunk Monkey to fantasize about the future that isn’t coming. You don’t know what’s going to happen next. Stay HERE now instead. From there moving forward is easier to handle.
