Came across this in my blog reading this morning:
What would your day look like if you allowed yourself to enjoy more of it? ~ tinybuddha.com
I have been asking myself this more and more lately as I am coming to realize that most, if not all, of my stress is coming from inside myself not outside from the world. Knowing this seems as if it would make it easier to let it go. But that has not been the case so far for me.
I actually think that I have been working too hard lately at “fixing” myself. The truth is, I am not broken (even if it feels as if I am some days). Acceptance of this fact is hard…not the mental acceptance (I completely get this and believe it in my head), but the deeper more felt acceptance at my core (in my heart) seems a bit harder to come by.
But it is progress, not perfection. And I am making progress. Lots of it. Tons of it actually. And that is the whole point, isn’t it? To keep growing…not to get “there” and be done. So today I must trust that I am exactly where and who I need to be.
So now I think I will go and ponder what my day would look like if I were to enjoy it rather than stress over it.
Happy Halloween everyone!
