Every action we take ripples outward from ourselves, affecting other areas of our lives.
In this sense the idea of karma, or energy attracting like energy, continues to play out in a more physical way.
How do we begin truly recognizing the impact of our actions?
It’s easy to say but practicing momentary mindfulness around the actions we take and words we speak can be difficult.
One of the questions I ask myself before taking action is “is this worth it?”
This is a simple question that can open so many doors. It can be the deciding factor between working a little more and taking some family time. It can also help reveal where your priorities are and lead you to dig deeper on why you have the priorities you have.
This is especially helpful if you’ve been feeling out of alignment with who you are or want to be.
Tell me what other ways you use to judge your actions and words beforehand. How often do you notice yourself practicing this type of momentary mindfulness?
