Just For Today – I Will Not Worry

5 Principles of Reiki

Just for today, I will not worry

Just for today, I will not be angry

Just for today, I will do my work honestly

Just for today, I will be kind to all living things

Just for today, I will be grateful for my many blessings

I Feel Like I “Feel” Everything

There is no doubt that these last few weeks have presented unique personal challenges – actually this entire year has. But this blog is not about those challenges, it is about my reflections on my ability to navigate through them.

I feel as though my recent writings reflect a suffering, a powerlessness from a worrying state of mind. I noticed this as I wrote – feeling as though I was sharing more suffering, more “poor me” than my usual joyful, positive self. I justified it as everyone suffers, everyone goes through cycles. But, I felt more like a victim to my circumstances, stuck in self-pity.

I felt and feel like this inward emotional train-wreck that swings from “I can handle this” – to – “I am completely overwhelmed” leaving me, at times, emotionally exhausted.

I feel like I “feel” everything, and I can’t turn it off; and at times I feel more with worry, not love.

The Four Agreements

I bought the audio book of The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz and am listening to it as I work on the front yard. This book has come to me at the perfect time (thank you CarolAnn ❤️) to help ground me back in love.

Just For Today – I Will Not Worry

Just for today, I will not worry. I will do my best. I won’t try too hard. I won’t not try. I will bring myself back to calm, peace and love… to do my best.

S, ❤️

I Love You – The Hanumen

I included this song, because I love it so much as it fills my heart with love! As well, there is something about its melody that brings me such inner peace…..

    Dear Stephanie, you and I have never met in person but I feel such a close bond to you.
    My heart goes out to you.
    This week I have been feeling such sorrow and sadness and want to put it behind me but I know I have to go through it all to get to the other side.
    Joy will come back to you, I promise!

    Sending light and love.
