Don’t let it get to you

Stuff happens. Let it. There’s not much you can do about it. Dwelling on the past is a fool’s game. Dwelling on the past is something that can hinder your future progress. Accept it, embrace it, move on, don’t let it get to you. If you’re constantly thinking about it, you’re letting it get to you. Try to focus on being in the now. View your surroundings with intent. Feel the weight of your feet on the floor, your bum on the seat, your clothes on your back. Just enjoy and embrace being in the moment. Soon enough, you’ll find that you’ve stopped letting things get to you.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
