My head is a busy, loud place. Know that feeling? Self-criticism. To-do lists. Frustration. Plans. Hopes. The positive tangles with the negative.
No matter how many time outs I give myself the volume level still gets deafening.
I’m building a habit of practicing silence. Duct tape the voices inside my head. At least the ones pitching temper tantrums. Restore balance. Harmony. Intentional and joyful action flows from a tranquil mind.
I’ve always been challenged by meditation. I’m supposed to just sit there? I can’t sit still to save my life. And while I’m sitting there getting in touch with my inner Yogi (and I’m not talking about the bear) someone will come along and sprinkle me with fairy dust and I’ll jump back into life with birds and sunshine on my shoulders? Puh-leeeese.
Ummmmm …. I shouldn’t speak before I really really put some effort into it. Which I did when I got tired of the chaos in my head.
We’re only human. We don’t always stay on the path of light and sparkly thinking. We do have the power to channel energy in a better direction.
