Hello my dears. Long time, no talk. I have been crazy busy the past two weeks, teaching seven days a week. I just about had a mental breakdown yesterday. Alas, this morning, I let myself sleep in a little and have been taking the day to take care of some things around the house. I actually find cleaning and cooking to be very grounding. I also planted some flowers. :)
Yesterday I was thinking a lot about perspective and contentment, in the midst of me feeling overwhelmed and everything else, the news came on about the Boston Marathon. I couldn't believe it. I felt absolutely speechless. I then immediately started to feel a heavy heart. This world seems to be shifting. There is a lot of fear and it seems to be growing rather than lessening. It's important to keep an open heart. No matter what. Otherwise, we just become stuck in our fears. It's easy to get stressed in life, it's really easy to lose sight of ourselves and our own contentment. But it's important to keep going. Keep believing and keep trying to make the world a better place. No act of kindness is too small.
So be kind. To yourself and to others.
Lots of love.
