I’m not sure what to write this week. I’m behind but I don’t know what to do about it. There are a few personal things going on in my life that are taking up lots of headspace.
One thing I have been practicing this week and last, is noticing when I am ruminating about the difficult things I am experiencing, and instead, thinking about God, which to me, turns out to be the present moment’s natural beauty.
I have noticed the way the waves froth and turn while I am surfing. I have noticed the way the birds swoop and call in my backyard. I have noticed the way the mist gathers and the sun cuts through the clouds. This has strengthened my resolve to do the best I can, and let me in on the secret that I am okay and that things are okay.
I have taken to believing that this means things will be okay in the future and this gives me great comfort.
