My safeplace. My castle. My sanctuary.
I finally feel comfortable, at rest, in balance, in one single space in time. This is where I keep my mementos, make memories, and find my inner balance. A crystal hangs from the ceiling here, a Jade plant rests on a shelf there, a mirror redirects negative energy everywhere. I love this journey of Feng Shui in MY home. Where only my hands resposition books, my hands water the plants, my hands hang pictures. This sense of security and safety engulfs my body and mind.
It’s this home I’ve relocated a kitten to. It’s this home I’ve adopted a puppy in. It’s this home I’ve kissed the man of my dreams. So many possibilities, I rest my head assured every night that everythings going to be alright.
Home is where the heart is, and I finally know where my heart is.
Special Thank you to Dana Murphy for the insporation to write about my home in her piece, “This House”
Clearing my head. Breathing through my nose. Quieting my thoughts. Sounds easy, sure.
1,2,3, zoom…4,5,6, zoom…7,8,9, zoom…
I can hardly count past three? One thought, then another racing across my mind.
Let it be. Let it be.
Deep breath in; exhale, “Oooooooohhhmmmm Bhavam Namah.” Think, “I am absolute existence. I am a field of all possibilities.”
Without this, it’s hard to “Let it be.”
At times, very frequently as of late, I find myself struggling to juggle the demands of my mind, body, family, society, and finances. Very rarely can I say that there is a “balance”, whatever that is supposed to mean. There are tiny wafts of the sweet, sweet aroma of balance, yet I continue to search…and I search…and I search to find what this two-syllable, overly used word means.
Here’s to wishing I could say, “the universe wants me to stay busy!” and really believe it. Wishing I could feel rest and relaxation when I have a “To Do List” being added to daily. Wishing I could find what this illusive word means in my life.
Yes, I know that I tend to swallow more than I can chew, but what eager, energetic, hungry for life soul doesn’t? The kind that has found balance? Has this word been made up to fool people into believing you can have your cake and eat it too?
As I wake each and every morning, I read the all too familar affirmation cards resting on my vanity counter. “One step at a time,” and “enjoy the present moment,” and “trust in the process of life…” I take a deep, steadying breath, ground my toes into the cold, bare floor and exhale, “OOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHMMMMMMMMMM…”
Push it to the limit.
Pass, skate, shoot, skate…
1-0, we’re ahead.
A minute goes by 1-1.
Oh no, 1-2!
Who will step up and take the bull by the horns?
3rd period, 3 minutes…2 minutes…60 seconds, OVERTIME?!?!
Take a breath, drink some water…GO!
