And the things you see will change

Our mind doesn’t know the way
Our heart has already been there
And our soul never left

Talking to my inner peace, my space to take it all in, into my conscious mind
My physical body resting, peaceful in this place
My senses taking in the sounds around
The birds singing
The silence that isn’t silence
Humming in my ears
Whooshing of my heart
Softness of my breath
Clock ticking the fake time away
The now of just being here in this space
Taking notice of the way my physical body feels
The tightness across my lower back
Pressure on my tummy
The ache of my eye
Throbbing of feet
This all in my physical being that in this time I inhabit
Which is an instrument I can use how I will
Thoughts pinging here to there
I can be lead, let it me be guided for the better, learning, feeling
Being guided by an energy, a force that already knows
It is here to guide me
I am here to listen
For it is right
It knows what this ‘being’ is here to do
I just let it be and it will come to my physical thought
It is right
It is all right
The energy has lead me to this point of now
I am guided
I am that
I am now
Staying out of other peoples drama, is my todays thought…..
I have been so guilty of it in the past and am still now but more mindful of it and to stop it in its tracks. I seem to attract myself to people that are ‘drama queens’, always something major going on with there life. If you have been a bit ill with the sniffles, then they have had ‘Arabian Night flu” and the doctors said it was touch and go they nearly died! You know the kind of people I am talking about we all have them in our lives, some are as close as family members, when you think, yes finally they are settled got themselves a nice house job girlfriend…. Oh no what’s happened now… To people we work with, friends etc
I think why I am saying all of this is what has helped me in my ‘I want to feel better’ quest is to distance myself from those people, not get fully hooked in, not join their parade, and start swinging the batons around with them.
It does sound selfish really I know but they are energy zappers, spirit suckers, thought drainers.
love to you all x
Here it is then a new year, beginning of a new week, new beginnings la de da… how many times have we heard that over this last week, the pressure of it all, thinking ‘shit’ if I don’t start something new today it will be too late, then that’s it I’ve failed before I have even started, now I have to wait till next year…..
And STOP its ok its not too late, it never is, it’s always a good time to start, the only time when it is to late is when we are dead!
I know that does sound a bit morbid but it is true, doing the job I do, I’m seeing them in and seeing them out and all the in between, and one thing I am sure about until you take your last breath there is always time, hope. Now don’t get me wrong I have my days and I am not ashamed to say, well I was but I’m learning to accept them, I have suffered from depression, I still suffer anxiety on a daily basis, panic overwhelming me like a wave of water over taking my head and body and this is what I was talking about in my last post, how do I get over this…over…wrong word, I don’t think I will ever get over, but what I am doing is learning how to manage, learning how not to let it get sunk right in, learning how to let thoughts of self harm, panic, self hate pass through like visitors… nice to see you but it’s always nice to see you go ….
Daily habits, as mentioned in last post,
So if you wanted, for example to be a concert pianist, it does not happen overnight, first you would get the resources, piano, music books, then you would go to someone that already knows how to play the piano, you would get lessons, then you would take on board what they have taught, because they are the person that have already done it, then you would practice what you have been taught until you are familiar with it, trained your muscle memory, then go back to the person that has more knowledge than you and go through the cycle again, you get my drift. Well these steps are the same for everything.
I want to feel better, spoiler alert…. it is not going to happen over night, so I am going to need resources, I am going to need to learn from someone or people that have learnt how to feel better, I am going to need to take on board what they have to say, now for the big one…. PRACTICE what they have suggested, then when I want to learn more and am ready for the next step go back to the people that have learnt more than me and carry on the cycle.
What I am going to do in the coming year, I am going to share what resources I am and have used, including books, YouTube videos, pinterest and my best resource good old fashioned pen and paper. The people I have gone to that have and help me, whether that is someone I have never met but their writings have inspired me, to the people around in my life. How I practice, how I make time in my busy life of working in the ambulance service and now starting a second job in a mental health hospital, a family, grandchildren, dogs, you know all those time zappers. And how I find the motivation to keep going, what helps me, what stops me sinking into the pit with my dark passenger. And if any of this helps you then great! But if it does not then I am helping someone, I am helping me.
Love to you all x
