Wait, are you telling me Christmas is over and now 2017 is on its way out? I haven't finished my coffee yet. Dammit! You know what, I know what happened. I was busy thinking, and then I was thinking, and then...yes, there was more thinking....so I think....okay so you are telling me just to move forward? Move forward. It does sound lovely. How does one really do that?
Okay, my mind is swirling. On the way hand, it says, "you just put a fucking foot forward, you moron." Um....not nice mind. I really don't appreciate your rudeness.
My heart says, "it's okay. Remember we're going to work with mind more. Mind is a goofy, serious, overthinking, non stop action rascal. Remember, it doesn't like to be pushed or shoved. It prefers to do the pushing and shoving."
Heart continues...and says..."look...we've been trying different things for years. The one thing we haven't really REALLY done is accept." Never. It's always well, I'll eat this muffin even though it doesn't taste so good. I won't waste. But next time it better be good. Because now I'm sad. I remember the times it was good and now I'm spiraling down to worrying it might never be good again!
Mind is now activated and yells, "It won't be good ever again! Don't you know that." Mind has some conspiracy theories. Corporations! They're fucking with all the muffins! No! It's those clowns. I'll bet the clowns are on the loose again running amok through the city. They go to all the local bakeries and scare the shit out of the chef....he jumps and forgets to put in an ingredient. Hence....the shitty tasty muffin.
Heart says, "okay mind. Now listen. I don't know about conspiracies. I'm really not into that. But I do know this...we need to work on your attitude. We need to cultivate this sass and frass attitude you have and make it work - so the quality of our lives gets better. Because guess what? We're in this together. Yes. We can't do this on our own. We need each other."
Mind and heart snuggle up together. Okay....so let's see what kind of amazing new opportunities and adventures await....starting right now! I mean, right this very second. Look around. Hey, I'm typing. I'm feeling good about what I'm typing. I'm sharing. I'm reaching out. I want to connect, relate and help others. See? A little different, right?
Heart reminds mind..."don't look for the BIG stuff. Look for the in-betweens, the teeny tiny tickles of truth that lie in doing the most simple tasks." Deep breathe. Oh that feels good when we take that deep breath together.
Happy New Year to you all!
