Last week at a mindfulness course we did the mountain meditation. I listened to it again this morning. It says to compare ourselves to a mountain. Life happens. Storms rage. Winds howl. The sun shines. Snow glitters. Continue reading “One Hundred and Forty Seven: Mountain mindfulness meditation”

The world’s been looking like a really dark place to me recently. I’ll share what I wrote this morning depicting the darkness at the end of this post. Yet somehow it’s not as dark at the moment.
The world hurts at the moment. I’m in tears, feeling really alone- which I pretty much am. Tired of trying and just want a break.
Yet I’m grateful. That I can cry. That I can let myself cry.
It takes only a second. We’ve many moments in life. Each and every moment can be awesome. Thank you Kate for sharing this
It takes only a second to flash a smile
Yet it can make another’s life worthwhile!
It takes only a second to appreciate
That we steal another’s time being late!
It takes only a second to open our heart
Then real kindness we can impart!
It takes only a second to hate
But we all choose our own fate
It takes only a second to forgive
And it becomes so much easier to live …
It takes only a second for the future to become now
Yet all too often we miss it somehow?
It takes only a second to die
And we wont know why …
What can you do to take care of yourself today for – only a second?
So long as there’s life, there’s hope.

I’m not sure what to title this post. Nor am I sure that I’m doing the right thing to write this out. I dialogued with myself when there was too much unnamed going on that I couldn’t handle. I think I want to share, as I want to know I’m not alone, and I’m pretty damn proud of what I did here. I think the most amazing part – to me – was that it actually helped. A little.

Don’t quit. It’s way easier to give up than to continue trucking. To take another step. To continue trying. Trying new things, different things. Knowing that one day it will pass. That tomorrow is yet another day. I need the reminder today. Continue reading “One Hundred and Twenty: Don’t Quit (poem)”
