What’s coming will come and we will meet it when it does 

Quote from Hagrid If only it wasn’t raining today or if we had more time…if this hadn’t happened or what if they don’t like me or people think I’m fat… Are all responses that many of us unconsciously  allow to flow from our mouths and into our reality.

Note the words in bold above. Highlighted in seems obvious that these perceptions would hold us back and stop us from reaching out true capacity, the words in bold like translucent chains prevent us from pursuing actions and even within everyday tasks hold us back. Yet most of us use them everyday and don’t even notice the shackles we’ve place upon ourselves. 

So how do we release them? I don’t think we need to. Like following our instinct at times we all need to say no, not participate or perhaps it can be critical a analyse after an event that helps to evaluate and improve future events. 

What I do think is helpful is to be mindful with the words we use, why we chose them and how they make us feel. To be present in what we say and think in the ‘now’

There is much research into the art of gossiping that tells us: 

  •  it’s an awesome stress reliever 
  • it helps us to understand what is and isn’t except able in society
  • it allows us to form bonds with others and isn’t alway negative 

Like everything this universe provides and denies, balance is necessary…if all you do is gossip and every time you meet that person all he/she wants to do is gossip you may need to divert the conversation to a new level, or even remove them from your world all together.

Hagrid makes a hugely valid point that for all our worries before an event – when it comes, we will deal with it as best we can. We have support from loved ones and even in our loneliest of times humans in crisis show huge resilience and incredible levels of ‘coping’ when forced to.

So enjoy the now and when it comes we will adapt, do what’s necessary, be supported by loved one and you knew what? It may just work out better than we hoped for.

  1. So true for Hagrid … today is the tomorrow we feared and all is well (hopefully!!!) So live in the now and choose our perceptions carefully … it can go some way to unloosening some of the more unhelpful shackled. #thesatsesh


  2. This is so true – it’s such a waste of time worrying about what might happen. I love the quote from Hagrid! 🙂 #thesatsesh


  3. I love that quote and have never heard it before! Educated, again, by What the Fridge Says! #thesatsesh


  4. funny, i was just having a similar conversation to this with my son who is off to a graduate placement open day tomorrow at the place he has been excepted – he is terrified (as always) of walking into a room full of strangers. My advice? “As long as you’ve remembered to put your trousers on everything will be ok!” – just trying to lighten the mood 😉 #practicalparenting #thesatsesh


  5. Great quote from Hagrid – so, so true. What will be, will be and we will be more resilient than we believe possible. And as we were discussing in the mindfulness session tonight – ‘thoughts are not necessarily facts’ anyway xx #thesatsesh xx

  6. Love this quote. I need to live it myself. I do try and live in the moment, but I am a worrier too and I know that worrying doesn’t actually make situations better and you never reach a situation and think ‘Well all of that worrying paid off, because no I don’t feel half as bad!’ I definitely need to unlearn it!

    Great post! #thesatsesh
