Before I even got out of bed this morning I had a potential pile of worries; all the unfinished tasks, stuff I should have done better, people to call, errands I needed to run, questions and doubts about myself, my work, and my life.
But, notice the word, potential. I have finally learned to reject the “pile,” fight off the shame, resist the guilt, and wrestle the voice in my head into submission.
I now recognize the dark cloud before it settles and know that I can opt for sunshine…simply by focusing on:
- The big universe full of created wonder (including me)
- Being a loving parent to myself
- Faith in being enough for whatever comes
- One thing at a time
- And, this one sustaining, amazing breath
