We all know it’s healthy to defrag our hard drives every now and then. It helps your machine work at its best. Our brains are no different.
Getting everything out enables us to separate our identity from the thoughts. Then, we can look at them more objectively. This allows the brain to do what it does best – figure that ish out.
Today’s exercise from Five Minutes in the Morning is similar to the previous stream of consciousness prompt. For five minutes, write down e v e r y t h i n g that’s bothering you, from the deterioration of America to the errands you need to run for the week ahead.
Here’s what I wrote:
Worried about time, always about time. But I met my ally today [through shadow work] who will help me with worries that keep popping up.
What else is on my mind?
Just want to do yoga & set up my appointments. I’m doing a lot in the morning before I start the day & it’s not so bad.
Thinking about a future – will I have time to do this when I’m training? Some things may have to stop, but that’s only for 2-3 weeks. I can manage. I will make the things that need to be a priority a priority. Just excited about another week, another day to be alive.
Excited for the chance to get out of the house.
Excited about the chance to help people.
Excited for the chance to make twice as much money as I am right now.
Excited about developing a new schedule.
I guess I’m just excited, anticipatory & I know that can present as anxiety, but now that I realize that I can accept it & move mindfully into it.
Kinda a long walk for a short glass of water, but it is what it is.
My holiness envelops everything I see.
Thanks for stopping by, dear readers. I wish you a week filled with peace, happiness and lovingkindness.
