Staying on our Path

Staying on our path.

In these days of around-the-clock news, social media feeds, and never-ending to-do lists, is it any wonder that sometimes we feel distracted and overwhelmed? The sad reality is we’re a little like raccoons – looking for the shiny object.  Or the dog in this cartoon;) (cartoon by Maria Scriva)

stay on the pathIf staying on our path, task or mission is the goal/hope, then we have a few ways to approach it. Many practices such as mindfulness, yoga, or meditation can really assist in staying on our path.  I am reminded of the quote from the book by Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain.

The car goes where the eyes go

I think the trick is knowing when we start to veer from the path we bring ourselves back to the path/balance and that means we need to check in often.

Similar to when we hop our screens to do a search and end up in a very different place and then forget what are looking for and have to go to history to remember! Has that happened to anyone?

Anyhoo, for more practical ideas of  how to stay on your path using  mindfulness, yoga, or meditation we’d be glad to help!   Lis-Catspaw Studio – catspawguru at gmail . com
