Old Chinese proverb that you need to think about for just a few moments. Let it sink in…
Some things that irritate and hold you back in life may seem insignificant. The cumulative effect of the same irritation can eventually tear one down just as one drip of water that continues has the power to wear away stone. Take time to reflect on the things that are harmful to your well being. Whether that is a habit of poor diet, drinking, smoking, or toxic relationship with another. Might be time for some housecleaning. Your life is precious. Your time is irreplaceable. Make time for things that build you up. Mindfully eliminate toxins from your life.
It’s Saturday and I am enjoying some down time from the hustle of last week at work. I’m sure many of you are like me and are frantic on that work hamster wheel all week. My “woman cave” is actually in my garage where I sit with the back door open to listen to the birds, feed my stray kitties and sit in comfortable weekend clothing (yoga pants with no yoga goin on lol). Today though, my neighbors dog was barking continuously and my nice, yet loud voiced, all to close to my house, neighbors won’t stop talking…..so what’s a person to do to rejuvenate? What can any of us do to re-energize? Many things indeed. One of the things that rejuvenates me is talking to a really good friend. Not an acquaintance. We all have that person that we can be ourselves with to bitch about life, laugh at stupid things. You see, I’m a bit different than many people. When I crack a joke I have gotten accustomed to getting that puzzled look from people. I just usually tell them “think about it awhile, you will get it eventually”. One of my people is Cindy. Cindy and her husband own small carpet cleaning company in Ohio. If you are in need of your carpets cleaned by the best Toledo carpet cleaning company give them a call! You’re welcome Cindy 🙂 They are awesome people. Anyways, I called her today after my quiet time was blasted by “the loud people”. She immediately made me feel better and centered. We all need our people that “get” us. So if you are feeling off your game, call your person and get yourself centered.
I am an introvert. No doubts about it. I relish the quiet times that I have because I actually enjoy my own company. The time I spend thinking, processing the day or an event is priceless to me. It can be very healing in my life. I find that when I’m around a lot of people I feel completely drained and soon will seek solitude. There are others in this world that are the opposite of me in this respect. The more activity and interaction they have with other people the better. It rejuvenates and powers them up. So which one represents you? A good question to ask yourself. It’s surely a good idea to be introspective at times. Once you find out what your source of energy is it is much easier to make time for this in your life. Take the time to know what juices you up and make a decision to include it in your daily schedule.
I am so happy you have stopped by for my first post. I have started this site because I am very observant of people and their behaviors. I believe strongly that when a person is out of balance that it manifests in some physical way. Stress and grief, if are prolonged will cause illness. I see it time and again in my nursing practice. I am here to show understanding and illuminate ways to get back to the root of who you really are. If we create balance in our lives it promotes wellness. I want to give you some real things to reflect on and hopefully add some value to your life. Check back soon for more posting.
