Nothing can harm you as much as your own thoughts unguarded. -Buddha
Our thoughts can be a dangerous place to dwell. One thought triggers another, then another, until we are so wrapped up that we have forgotten what the original thought was.
I’ve been down so many rabbit holes lately, which reflects on my lack of blogging this past year. I’ve toyed with letting go of my meme and even closing down my secondary site. But life has a funny way of saying “wait.. it will get better”. Or maybe that’s just my conscience talking. Either way, I’m still here and my passion for writing is returning. I just needed to get out of my own head and some much needed downtime.
I’ve noticed a wonderful feeling when I am being present in the moment, it’s warm and comfortable, it’s called peace. Nothing else matters but that person or the task at hand. When you are able to do this the results may surprise you, they did for me.
I needed to learn how to cut myself some slack and just be present in that moment. Often we find ourselves trying to be everything to everyone that we forget how to cut ourselves some slack when something falters. It’s so much easier said than done, right? Many people can say it to you, but you have internalize it, truly believe it and then let go.
That’s the hardest part.. letting go. (But that’s for another post)
