Challenge Day 26 of 30 – Gratitude for Stillness
It is so easy to fill our lives up with things that seem all important. Then we complain that we have no time for the things that matter to us. Heck we most often feel like there is no time to even sit still with ourselves.
This is really a farce. We act like someone other than us is doing this. We complain like we are victims of an illusive slave driver. What a joke !!
If you want your life to be made up of different things, then change it. I’m not saying snap your fingers and bam new life. But complaining doesn’t change a damn thing.
Take yourself seriously and make a game plan.
Drop the things that don’t really matter right away and those that need more time to detangle, just phase them out.
One of the best ways to do this is to give yourself the gift of stillness everyday. You can connect with what matters and what doesn’t. It sort of bubbles up if your willing to listen.
I am so grateful for stillness because it has allowed me to do this very thing. No one can go, go, go and expect to be healthy in body, mind, or spirit. Even music rests between sounds.
Imagine music without the pauses. Very stressful, right? That’s what you seem like when you walk around acting like your busier than the president of the United States. Oh no I have no time to call, to eat, to visit, to care, to breathe. You stress out yourself and others.
Get still and you’ll be surprised how much more you’ll get out of life.
