A Clicking Thought

Here’s a trick I discovered that does wonders for when you need to ground yourself in a pinch: imagine your mind is like a pair of binoculars; when you look through the lens, the perspective it yields may seem unclear or uncertain; but, after some trial-and-error adjusting the view, suddenly that *click* comes and the whole world sharpens into focus, allowing you to see the good that was there all along waiting to be looked at while rooted in the present without ruminating about the past or worrying about the future.

  1. Noice. My personal method to stop ruminating about the past and future is constantly reminding myself that we’re constantly existing in the now. All my power lies here. And if there are bad things in the horizon, I remind myself that I can get through so much more if I just focus on getting through the now. Anyway, thanks for this post!

    1. That’s a great take! This is exactly why grounding and mindfulness techniques are so helpful. And to get to this moment, we’ve made it through previous bad things. I like to think of life as a series of “nows,” where we can learn from past “nows” to then use that power you mention to shape our future “nows.” Thank you for your comment!
