February 25th - The thing about a cold...
It is curious to me that over the last few days, as I have battled a ‘cold’ – nothing that makes you feel so bad you just have to sleep it off, and well enough you are antsy to be doing something – somehow this has been permission to stop doing a bunch of my rituals… what?!
There is no good reason to have avoided meditations, reading, writing, prayers, less TV… yet I found it acceptable to do so. Disappointing – I thought I was doing better on flipping switches off/on in the alignment department. Though when I did do the complete shut down for about 6 hours, I felt the most progress in ‘getting’ over what seems to want to linger.
So, not only do I get to feel off physically, but I am also now feeling out of sorts emotionally… not fun. Making life more challenging for myself, is quite counterproductive to momentum and energy. A message that keeps popping up yin / yang – to stay focused on living what I strive for in personal meaning, guess I must keep flirting (validating) what doesn’t add to it.
If a way of life is meaningful, it doesn’t look for excuses to pause.
Hmmm, deceitful…day 212!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
