So after only 3 months of dating Cheryl has been to the chapel, tied the know, got hitched. After only 3 months of dating!! Needless to say there has been plenty of opinions banded about
“It will never last”
“What is she thinking?”
But do you know what, she has followed her heart. Yeah she might be a bit crazy and it might not last but Cheryl is doing the amazing thing that most of us fail to do…..
She is living in the NOW.
So many of us (and yes me too) are far too concerned about things that happened in the past and the things that may happen in the future.
If only, What if? These two phrases can hold us back and stop us taking chances.
When faced with a decision or conflict, your mind may come up with numerous, different and quite logical reasons why you should act as it advises, but if you listen to and trust your heart-however illogical or irrational it may seem-it is usually right and you are happier as a result. But sometimes the heart option isn’t what is expected of you or isn’t the sensible thing to do, so we don’t go there, we bottle it and play it safe.
The mind can get caught up in trivia and nonsense, becoming upset or even unglued over a seemingly harmless remark. It runs your life, pushing and pulling you in all directions, from attraction to repulsion, creating endless dramas in acting out your insecurities and fears, because it is not in touch with your deeper feelings. Living inside your head all the time is actually not much fun!
Maybe Cheryl has the right idea. Maybe we should say sod it more often and go with what feels right, what makes us happy in the moment?
But that takes real guts and I’m not saying it easy in the slightest, but it might be fun.
Right I am off to find my husband, I could be married by October
