Today, as I tried to wake up to a new day, I had to try extra hard to reel my negative thoughts back. For some reason, they showed up like an invited guest – the problem is, I didn’t invite them. As I dragged them back, I realized that it didn’t need to be that hard. Or was it?
Thoughts are like dark matter. I know they exists because they swirl around in my head. The light is what shows that black is there. The power of thought is very tricky. Mine wreaked havoc for a bit, and then they went somewhere else. The truth is, or so I tell myself, if stars shine bright in the universe, then they are like positive thoughts. The ones that drive me to see the brighter side. The ones that remind me it’s difficult to be human, but it’s not all that I am; human.
There’s this whole universe of beauty, miracles, and immense divine everything that permeates our reality. Today, I thank God for one more day of breathing, thinking, and being. Being in every moment as each negative thought explodes into the dark recesses of my being, only to be lit up again by my many stars.
Thanks for visiting folks. I look forward to my next 39 days of faithful observance during lent, 2021.
