A new day, in a new life. Breaking free of self-imposed chains; external forces that cuffed me somewhere along the way; seeing a new way forward inspired by seemingly impossible obstacles to overcome; Easter. The day we observe The resurrection of Jesus Christ.
This isn’t a post about religion. It’s an acknowledgement that we experience many endings in our lifetimes. And through those endings, emerge new beginnings.
Today, I celebrate my own release. Release from negative live-feed internal nonsense, and build healthy boundaries around those who seek to tear down my efforts.
🥂, may you all find beauty, courage, and strength around your soul. 💞
Today, I realized how fuzzy my mind can really get. Some might even call it, absent-mindedness. This pic was taken today. Can you guess what is really in this image?
That’s how life can be. We are extraordinarily stretched. So too can be our perception. What is our reality, can be someone else’s insanity.
It’s the same with what I think I heard. Just recently I was on the phone chatting away, while waiting for my car to get fixed. The person on the other end was watching over my fur-kids. I heard: ‘they’re a problem.’ What was really said: ‘I’m having fun.’ How did I get that so mixed up?
Well, I don’t like being human, but there it is. I’m only human. Next time you find yourself berating yourself: DON’T. 🙏🏼
Unplugged. Undone. Underscored. Uneven. Understood. There really is no assigned day to be unplugged. If it’s not physical/electrical/digital, it’s mental.
And the mental connection is what matters to me today. It’s nice when you can pull a plug from the wall. Or, power off your phone and digital devices. But my brain? Your brain? How? How to unplug? Do you even want to?
I want to. Meditation is always the best and quickest way for me. But performing mindless tasks is also effective. Washing dishes, laundry, sweeping, vacuuming… Anything that has a repetitive movement feels great. It’s that time when my mind wanders. When I’m free to flow mentally and physically at the same time.
That’s my goal today; my first day of March. How else will I welcome and make space for new growth? Many blessings, Sandi. 🙏🏼
I’m not an engineer of any kind, but I try to engineer my life as best as possible. Bridges allow us to get from one point to another, because there’s too wide a gap to get to the ohter side otherwise.
As I continue to observe lent 2021 in my own way, I realize more than ever, and most especially with COVID-19 being a constant threat, how important it is to be the bridge for others. It amazes me how often I will run into a situation involving family, friends, even strangers, that I allow myself to be the one to connect whatever needs connecting, to get things done.
