I’ve been thinking…a nasty little habit of mine!
Ok, for those of you who tuned into my Sunday Personals…and reading, “One Piece at a Time”…you know a little more than you did from the Sunday before…
Monday, Monday…The sun shines brightly in the sunlit sky…the clouds float effortlessly as they drift without a care in the world…that’s me today.
Today I feel rejuvenated…I appreciate the moments, even more, when the heaviness is lifted. I started the day with my little one and running out the door EXTRA early…frustration in tow…and off we go! I drop her at class and make my daily phone calls…wondering how I’ll fit a full-time job back in my life with all I’m doing now…anyway, I make my calls…I stop for a Starbucks “lil pick me up”…and browse the local Target as I waited…patiently, letting my frustration fall away. I wasn’t rushed nor bothered. Just bewildered with all the colors of spring and the little delights of Easter candy filled aisles…Silence…just the ambiance of those around me…not a care in the world. I stepped out in gray sweats, a black tee, and a light jacket…hair in a P-tail…and not a lick of make-up…loved every minute of it…Why?
I didn’t worry about how I looked…I didn’t fret over not having the means to buy something I didn’t really need…I didn’t carry the weight of things out of my control…living in the now…if only we could do this every day …hearing your inner voice, being your own teacher…I’m feeling a little more at home with myself.
I don’t want to let the circumstances this life throws at me put me in a tailspin…that runs out of control with negativity…I try and put things in perspective…maybe not right away, but more sooner, than later…feel what I need to feel…then move on. Just as the scripture says, John 8:32 – about truth…the easier it gets. I find a lot of people want to turn and run the other way…deny, deny, deny…make excuses and have a hard time hearing the truth…Much like a box of crayons, (I tell my kids this ALL THE TIME) the colors in the box are what they are…if I pull a RED crayon out and tell you it’s PINK, it doesn’t mean it’s pink…it’s RED. What do I mean? It is what it is no matter what people say, think or do…it doesn’t change…love You for You...No matter the color. Make sense?
I have a busy week and making a list of “To-do’s” as we speak…what can I say…when life is a little messy, doesn’t mean one can’t be organized…That’s Me.
See you soon…as always…Be Good to You.
