“Look, they are all zipped securely in their life jackets floating dead in the water! There must be hundreds” From the movie Titanic
This has always been one of my favorite scenes from this movie. Towards the end of the night, the female lead character is floating alone and alive on an old door surrounded by hundreds of bodies floating dead in the frozen waters as the rescue boats arrive. She was the only one in the story who risked, defying society’s expectations, instead, going for her passion.
So many times we fear for what might happen to us; all the “what if’s.” We plan, worry and often obsess missing the beautiful opportunities of the moment. Those Titanic passengers died frozen with all their money in the bank and possessions that became quickly meaningless. You know I have traveled to sacred sites all over the world and I am always amazed and sad when I encounter travelers who spend so much time worrying about their luggage; if they will be on time for the ferry; about their medications and on and on, missing the amazing, life changing and spectacular moments that they had traveled very far and spent much money to experience and enjoy.
This morning, take a look at your life and find a place where you are focusing on a “what if” and worrying about what hasn’t even happened, missing your own beautiful moments. Remember, your thoughts and feelings are creating those moments you are so worried about! Change them. It is a choice.
