We have lots of butterflies and bees in the garden, but not so much dragonflies. When I spot one of those, I believe that it’s bringing a message to me, or it’s a sign of transformation, something I need to change.
It’s already noon here! I had a busy morning and nothing better than letting go of unpleasant thoughts and worries than keep the hands occupied. I started the day early than usual, I didn’t sleep well, so instead of being in bed I got up and walked in the garden, saying hello to my flowers. After that, I had breakfast and cleaned up the house. I’ve just finished and I’m exhausted but feeling better, mission accomplished!
Flowers and coffee! My garden is blooming in beauty these days. Here are a few photos of it. I’ve taken many photos, all the time there is a little surprise in there. Mornings are my favourite time of the day. I make a strong coffee, fill up my cup and have a walk between the flowers and plants. I try to use this time, my ‘me time’, to focus on nothing, only to be! I forget the long day ahead, the past and the future. I say hello to all the flowers and of course, I take a pic with my cup of coffee.
Wishing you a lovely Sunday and a few moments of ‘me time’.
I’ve just read a lovely poem about calm in chaos by Judei Takali here. It’s exactly my feeling right now. I’ve been feeling exhausted, without a place to ground and to be myself. Yesterday was a lovely day, I was in my garden and these dandelions called my attention. When I looked at them, I saw the Buddha statue, in there, solid and peaceful, not because it is a statue, but the feeling that comes from it and what it represents. Nothing can go inside it and disturb its peace. I though I can reach this state of peace too, this calm that nothing can disturb. I know that my words sound crazy, but this is my feeling in the last few hours.
I’m going to make space to ground and to feel solid, and don’t let anything enter my being if it will not make me calm.
I’ll invest in myself and I’ve already started it. I’m joining Michelle GD in her Just5Things course that starts tomorrow. Few minutes per day, making lists, and it will be the space to work on my ground and calm project. Like everything in life, we need practice and commitment, we can’t just say, ok, I’ll do this and that, everything needs work and discipline.
