Daily Nugget #95
and then my life showed up….
i was walking the other day
as i often do
tho not as often lately…
all of a sudden my life showed up.
maybe i showed up?
it was like i emerged from Hades
from some dream
i woke from a coma.
where the hell have i been?
this seems to happen to me.
am i normal?
i sure hope NOT!
where do i go and what am i doing when i’m gone?
is part of me ‘abducted’?
maybe i’m SO deep within
that i can’t see what’s happening around me.
but i’m still living
doing my thing.
i don’t get it.
where the hell do i go?
is this some sort of evolutionary hangover
do others out there experience the same?
so then my life just showed up
as i was walking.
walking in the same hood that i do every day.
i feel like sometimes i want more
like ‘this is all good and stuff, but it’s not exactly what i want.’
wow. am i that UNgrateful?
cause i feel like i DO practice gratitude
but then there are those times
when all of a sudden
my life appears
i’m like: ‘holy moly. this is freaking awesome.
why am i not enjoying THIS moment?
why am i always looking to the next?’
yep. some deep thoughts for a tuesday.
the tuesday of the the week that people are stressed out of their minds
trying to ‘be ready’ for this day that we give stuff.
i used to be a scrooge
i just watch in awe
seeing people frantically rushing about
freaking out when things might not ‘arrive’ on time.
now i just watch
i wonder what the hell is wrong with everyone.
i feel all calm and stuff
i’m not stressing.
what’s up with all of this distraction?
when one is deprived of a certain amount of light from the sun
for an extended period of time
(cause most people have to work during the few hours of light this time of year)
this causes mass panic
where people feel they need to buy stuff
when really they just need a good cup of tea
a big dose of sunshine.
it’s like our nervous systems get all bunched up
if you throw in a little cold weather
you have TOTAL PERSON CONSTRICTION.
that’s my scientific word for this unusual behavior
us humans seem to exhibit for a few weeks at the end of december.
good new tho
we get to party like crazy soon for the eve of the new
wash away the Total Person Constriction syndrome
in one fell swoop.
we get our asses in gear
make all kinds of promises for the year to come.
these are only observations.
they are NOT judgements.
the behavior is curious tho
don’t ya think?
this is one possible solution in the sea of zillions
but here goes:
let’s spend$ without obligation.
eat without guilt.
celebrate with those we truly want to be with.
take longer lunch breaks to feel the sun on our faces (even if the rest of us is tightly covered).
be ok with going within even if that means NOT being social.
take good care of and listen deeply to what our bodies are truly craving.
stress less. or heck, not at all!
give from your heart. it’s supposed to feel good.
receive! receive! receive!
yes, i said receive. most of us are shitty at it.
give AND receive.
they are equally juicy and delicious
if you remove all the additives: obligation. guilt.
let’s breathe NOW together
in ONE collective breath.
breathe in and receive.
breathe out and give.
yep. it’s that simple, yo.
my recipe for severe Total Person Constriction disorder.
when you wake up
your life shows up
run and greet it with open arms.
this is what YOU created.
if you don’t likey,
the best way out is thru
enjoying and loving what you’ve got.
happy times, people.
when you emerge from your whatever you wanna call it
for goodness sake.
cause you freaking rock
and I Love YOU.
