baby, bumpy, breathing

baby: 25 years ago today a baby boy entered my life. As all of my children are, he is special. He was bonded to me in a way that is so unique to me. He needed to hear my heartbeat for the first 6 weeks of his life. I carried him in my arms and in one of those cloth baby carriers that fits around the chest.

bumpy: I am looking for more rocks to chop with a target date of December or January. Wasn't really planning this new adventure at this time but I am ready for it. And time is the only thing that we need to sort out those issues that involve $$$ and the future tuition of the baby rugrat.

breathing: "due to circumstance beyond my control", I am no longer rushing. I have learned that I have use RUSHING as a tool to avoid the inner me.

+rushing: a tactic for avoiding the emotions of the moment, of the situation, of the lesson
+rushing: a tactic for avoiding reality of the moment, the presence of others, the love in the environment
+rushing: a tactic for avoiding the consequences of my actions, my words, my affect upon others

YES, rushing to avoid being a healthier , wiser, happier me
+rushing to avoid being accountable
+rushing to avoid my responsibilty to myself

MANY DAYS of rushing between one place to another, from home to work, from one activity to another
+rushing to avoid pain, joy, reality
+rushing as a way of controlling events, others and awareness that I might be inauthentic

YEARS of rushing to avoid learning about me
+rushing to dodge perceived emotional pain or rejection
+rushing to avoid being with me

No I have no reason to rush. I have only me with inner and outer health to explore, to develop slowly.

NO RUSH ZONE... (ouch, can I really do it???)

    "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find,
    knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone
    who asks receives, he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks,
    the door will be opened" (Matthew 7:7,8).
    "Jesus says: 'Come to me, all you who are weary
    and burdened. And I will give you rest for your
    souls'" (Matthew 11:28).

    I am on a similar journey as you... and it is WONDERFUL, isn't it?! I LOVE analyzing and reflecting on things. There is so much to learn about ourselves if we just take the time to look, listen and feel. Stay on this path and it will be rewarding and enlightening. Ah... there's that word "enlightening". What is that saying about enlightening?? Hmmm.
