an inner child is playing and waiting the wonder of possibilities joyfully new beginners, dreams the innocent side of youth is plenty at the view there is emptiness to be filled, joy until when the time flows
Sharing with Tanka Tuesday – poets choice of words: I’ve chosen child and joy and the form is Etheree.
How are you doing my friends? I feel the tension in the air, everybody is busy and in hurry trying to finish up things and get others ready for the holidays.
Slow down, take a deep breath and smile. Reading some poetry before starting the day helps too. Writing is the best, only a few pages to organize your ideas and bring your focus back to what is important and what this season is about.
Noticing how calm I feel after writing. I don’t understand why I resist in doing it. Today I wrote about causes and consequences. Each little thing we do in this world has a consequence. It isn’t easy to accept it, but learning to accept and learn to let go is a must if we want to live in harmony with ourselves.
“The wound is the place where light enters you” Rumi
writing and writing, trying to lay down words on the pages of my journal to understand what is going on in my mind. somedays this process is easy, others not so much. i feel disconnected from my true-self, there are so many things going on, not only in my small world but in the big world, things that directly or indirectly affect us all.
this time of the year is wonderful, but it’s a little scary too. the winter is coming, months and months of grey skies and snow, lots of time indoors. if we are not careful the winter blues can take over.
i want to focus on what matters right now. i don’t want to fit and please others, i want to be true to myself, to be strong and let go of what/who doesn’t bring me joy, so i’m ready for the long winter.
quiet in my life :: yoga, meditation, and journaling early in the morning. this is my ‘me time’. love to wake up early and to know that for an hour or so i’ll not be disturbed. some days i get lazy and stay in the bed but most of the time i get up and start my day being positive.
my friend Delicia is creating personal meditations, you can check out here. she has lovely meditations in there and i asked her to create a personal meditation for me. she knows me well and i trusted that she’d pinpoint all my needs in the meditation.
i received my meditation last week, love it! the meditation is grounding, but at the same time makes me feel light and free. i’m practicing it every day since them and i feel that unpleasant thoughts are getting weaker and i’ve more room for creativity in my mind. isn’t it great!
my ‘me time’ makes me a better person to others, but the most important makes me a better person to myself.
