The past few weeks, I was struggling with trying to relax. I’ve had endless nights of tossing and turning and in some sort of dream/awake zone. I find myself going into some strange reenactment of a scene in my life and have no clue how or why I’m there. It is so incredibly frustrating that I’ve almost dreaded going to sleep some nights. Then one day last week, I heard this quote in a Buddhist lecture I was listening to and something clicked.
There is a fine line between caring and immersing yourself into something that you cannot change or affect. Finding that fine line is the key. I placed this quote on a sticky and it’s now stuck to my monitor so I see it every day and it reminds me that stressing or worrying too much takes me to a place I don’t want to be. I always thought being sensitive and intuitive to things and people was a great quality, but there is a healthy balance to everything. Sometimes, we are too sensitive and lose our strength in the ability to make rational and healthy decisions.
Anything you want to change, requires a constant conditioning. But it’s ok, you are in good company, as we all have our little challenges we are trying to overcome 🙂
I got super creative and decided to do a self portrait sequence(above). I’m at the age where I really feel comfortable expressing my creative ideas and not feeling self conscious about what others think. One other great benefit of getting older and wiser 🙂 Here’s to hoping you too find your inner power to do what you want by your own rules! xo
