Learning to See Rather Than Search

Cricket my purrrfect companion

As I settle into the rigorous self care circus that has become my life, I’m learning to be quiet with in myself.

I have to slow down or I will not repair.

I see startling differences between the two types of survival.

Survival mode #1: The task master pay the bills at any price. Drive your health into the ground. Search, search, search and search some more for ways in which to do this. Work 10 to 12 hour days cleaning homes and working retail. You must survive………but there’s never enough……not enough time…..not enough resources……..YOU ARE NOT ENOUGH

Survival mode #2: You dumb fuck, slow down.

Both sides can be self centered.

As I care for my body the way it’s intended to be cared for, I’m learning to see. I see details in the tiniest things, and it’s no longer the details of cleaning someone’s toilet to perfection with a toothbrush and toothpick in hand.

Awareness is blooming once again.

What truly matters is moving from my head space into my heart space.

Ideas of helping others who feel worse than I do are stirring in my soul. Visions of bringing laughter into places that are not funny.

We are all a little sick in some way, shape or form………..

  1. A very thoughtful post. I think that it is so easy to become wrapped up in a world that pushes us in all sorts of ridiculous contortions. We are here to live and to learn life lessons. Also I don’t know if any directive from the bible or otherwise that says thou toilet must be spotless and thou must get to the bottom of the ironing pile – every single time 😊😊

    • Such a tug o war btwn what we see with our eyes and what we know in our hearts. Makes me feel like I have multiple personalities…….hell at least that makes me interesting at a party 😉
