The constant flow of world crossing news, from which I find it difficult to get away despite not watching television, inhibits and contaminates me – it paralyzes me and has done so since I was a little girl. Environmental destruction, hunger, oppression, disease,… – everything felt (and feels) like a weight over my shoulders – too heavy to carry.
When I became a mother there was a time when I had to make a decision necessary to be the person I wanted to be – I needed to feel happy. It was not as easy as it may sound now when I write it down but I had to start focusing on the small details that I might not even see before. Little by little my way of thinking and feeling changed. Light began to enter me.
I have many tricks now… and if you want I would love to share some every week this fall and winter… They are easy small things that make big difference.
This morning I took a long restorative walk, opening my veins and my senses, filling my body with cold air and morning light. I looked to see and I listened to hear and I charged my mind with positive energy – that vital energy that it takes to be the person I want to be today.
