“The voyage in discovery lies not in finding a new landscape but in having new eyes.”
– Marcel Proust
There seem to be so many choices for me lately.
The nice thing I am noticing though is that there is no pressure!
I am just coming off an almost 2-week chest, head and nasal bug. It laid me down big time. The light side of this is that I rested my mind and body while I just let my spirit roam freely in pure, creativeness. This is the positive, productive side. The light side of the time I spent.
I like to look at all sides of an experience. Light and shadow. I do not need to tell anyone about the shadow side of being sick…nope. We have all been there.
I have trained myself to pay attention to subtle nuances, signs and how my life is “rolling.”
Am I on a roller coaster?
Am I on a train going down the tracks of my life? Is there a night vista, stormy skies or mountains lush with colors?
I play with this way of allowing my life to unfold in a more creative, gentle way. It is also a way for me of seeing which mind-set I am in. Fast, slow, creative, or jumbled. I also call it my Witness mind.
How do you check up on what is going on in your life?
How we spend our days, is of course, how we spend our lives.”
– Annie Dillard
