I’ve just written 3 separate blog posts. And I have deleted them all.
As I was writing, I noticed my mind making so much noise. SO many thoughts and ideas I wanted to pass on. To share.
This then is draft 4. And this is all I’ve got…
Today, I am tired. I am tired and my body says…go slow.
It takes such courage to go against the ‘shoulds’ our mind would try to have us believe. It takes a bit of “eff you…stop shoulding all over me”.
Yes, I ‘should’ be folding washing.
Yes I ‘should’ be finding and sorting the shit load of socks that seem to literally have brains and are playing hide and seek.
Yes I should be at the supermarket getting supplies for the week.
Yes I should be changing the world..
Yes I should be doing something else….
And then, I ground myself into this moment. The kids are playing outside on their bikes. Making signs to help the roads flow smoothly.
I’m warm on a coldish winters day.
I can hear the birds chirping outside.
I am tapping away, expressing myself creatively on my Mac.
And all of a sudden, I notice that there is no should, but rather a bunch of ‘coulds’.
I could be folding washing I just choose this right now.
I could be finding and sorting socks, but I choose this right now.
I could be at the supermarket and I probably will be soon, but right now I choose this.
Right now, there is no where else to be other than right here. Right now. And in that truth, I feel like I can slowly move if I choose.
That when I am done here, I could pop on some music and fold the washing and have that done.
And if I don’t make it any further than that, I am still ENOUGH.
I am replenishing my soul cup, one drip at a time.
And when I press publish, I have filled some of my cup.
This then, is a reminder to ‘slow the eff down’. You are doing enough. YOU ARE enough.
Now, that is enough. Exhale. Might go and lay down now! HA!!
Big, big love
