Day 99 and 100, November 1, 2016 @9:06 am
Surprising how busy and strapped for time I feel these days. When I get ***over with, I will do *-* is often in my thoughts. That time never comes. Something always fills that *** space. I’ve been feeling fatigued and stressed the last few weeks. My goal yesterday was to do less. I did not succeed.
Today is November 1st. October is over – an ending and a new beginning. I can try again to find that space of restfulness, of non striving, of doing one thing at a time. What better teachers to sit with than Melli O’Brien and Dan Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence? I’m learning not to feel the overwhelm. I’m reminded to take small steps. I’m appreciating the gift of sitting still with things as they are. The practice of coming back again and again to stillness, myself and what is important is worth the effort.
