..where it's ok to simply ~be~. That's where I find myself. It hasn't happened all that often lately, and I think it's because I'm trying to be more mindful - of what I eat, what I say, how I present myself, how I view life. Being mindful of what I'm eating does not mean I'm eating well or releasing any weight. I'm not. I am not. It just means I'm aware of what I'm doing and don't particularly care at the moment. Not about that anyway.
I'm having a mellow moment. Not to be confused with down or depressed - not at all, no. Mellow.. easy.. eyes and ears open to the world around me, taking it all in without re/acting to it. Just.. being.
That last blog? Was a reminder to myself only. Someone offered me their time and thoughts, and I bristled initially. When I thought back on the moment, though, I realized he'd given me a gift of insight - and how many times do we wish we could see life through someone else's eyes? Don't you? Or is it just me?
Anyway, he offered, and after thinking about the encounter, I was very grateful for what he shared. It's with that in mind that I'm trying to go forward here. The work week started out stressful, but my attitude has helped to balance out the stress. It's not personal. Trying to see from another person's perspective has meant less stress and more understanding. I can only hope this last for quite a while.
