Maat E's Mental Health Message:
By being present and living in the moment we can gain freedom from resentment. When someone does us wrong it is appropriate to feel our emotions in the moment. For example, if someone steals from you it is natural to be angry about the theft and sad about the material loss. Another situation may be the loss of a job. Worry and frustration may come up about what to do next or how to manage the situation. These emotions act as distractors to focusing on what is at hand in the present moment. If we practice not to over think the past injustice or not worrying about future plans,we can stay focused on what needs to be done right now or addressed in the current moment. Honor what you feel and live in the moment. Have a blessed day. Peace Maat E.
