October 6th, Voices inside...
A lot of chatter going on in my head today…ok, every day, really. To the point that I must remind myself to stay present in the moment, to listen, be engaged. The habit of multi-tasking I like to believe is a strength, does not serve me well when I should and want to be giving my full attention to who I am involved with. This even shows up in my morning meditation.
What to do, keep trying, I guess. Filter through what those voices are saying and what may be true, motives, etc. Ask them to be quiet so I can focus. Practice presence, intentionally. Let go. There is much I can continue to work on. And I did today – I resisted temptations to attempt 2 things at a time and just listened. I stopped and played Legos with my granddaughter. I am writing this, so my words are on paper and out loud.
Hmmm, shh, 'woman' at work…day 82!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
