Deep breaths feel good
Can you feel it? Tension so thick, it really does feel like you could cut through it with a knife. Not necessarily a good way to go. In these times of what feels like chaos, uncertainly, frustration and even real fear, we can all slow down, look up and be thankful for the day, the opportunity, the beginning; and just breathe. Just relax and take a deep breath. We're all okay.
Feelings can spiral out of control. Just like a tornado, things take on a life of their own and build. To get back to neutral, regain our balance, we have to just stop. Take stock and don't give anybody else our power. Breathe.
We've all seen the changes going on all around us. Crazy behavior from so many! The part for me that's so hard to understand is the genuine fear. I just do not understand that kind of fear. Just seems like for that much fear to exist in ones' head, must be like turning all your logical power of reasoning and personal choices right over to another person. Just don't go there.
Personally, I am so thankful the elections are over. It is what it is and the only way we can move forward and progress is to bind to one another. Find the commonalities and work with each other. Be kind and considerate, especially when we disagree. Passion is one strong emotion. Don't try to squelch it in someone else. My prayer is for a good outcome and for our country's success. Our success. Regardless of your political affiliation, we truly all want the same things in life. It's not that complicated and we just need to move forward in love, and in hope. Try wishing someone who really ticks you off, well. Wish them well. Say a prayer for our leaders so that they might help us. We want it to work don't we?
It's been almost a week since it's rained. We've even had a couple of days where the sun was shining. Wonderful to behold! But mostly we're enshrouded in grey. Foggy and damp, but warm. Feels rather fitting actually.
We had our last load of firewood delivered and plan on stacking it in the wood shed this Sunday. Looks so good all stacked up, very artistic. I love wood. No news on the horse front, too dark to do much when I get home. Winter mode is upon us. I feel like Fall just skipped right over us this year. Summer ended and winter (monsoon season) took over. Not much I can do to change it, so I just go with it. Blows my mind that it's nearly the middle of November already! Seriously...
May we all indulge in something that brings us joy and find a measure of contentment in this day. It is a gift after all.
Find the good. Drink in the beauty and just take a deep breath.
