This morning, I took a “reset”. a Ctrl-Alt-Del.
Every morning when I wake up, I look out my window and notice things in the world around me.
I imagine the area around my home, with no buildings, no cars. Just earth, air, clouds, grass, trees. I remind myself that this is the basics, like any other animal on this planet. Everything else we made. The work, the school, the relationships, the posessions we value so much like cars, nice house, boats, and work.
It can be easy to get caught up in the human doing instead of the human being.
Does your day start like this? I need to get the kids up, grab the dry cleaning, make breakfast, rememer to grab that letter, walk the dogs, blah blah
Does your day ever end? Or is your mind always racing. What’s it racing for? What are you trying to go after which causes this stress?
We made this world, we made these things, we decided and put this on ourselves. We become the human doing, always doing, always trying to achieve, get the next car, promotion, house, accomplishment, validation.
Get grounded. Go back to basics, slow down. And let go of trying to please everyone, including yourself.
