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.
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…..
