October…Could things be happier?
And they can, as life strives for balance! When chaos seemed to be taking over, calmness can appear, and life becomes more doable. The terror turns out to be in the rear-view mirror, a humorous memory that teaches that there is more to come if you just slow down, listen and learn from others around.
And so week two of this crazy experience I started in the midst of so much more, has begun to make a bit more sense. Just like a puppy who calms down to realized that the treat will be delivered, I am seeing that by slowing down, breathing, and enjoying sitting still I can achieve more, learn better, accept the challenge readily and begin to “get it”.
Learning more of the how this works seems to calm down my brain, my heart is less erratic, and the other physical pain has a chance to subside as a feeling of what potentially can occur. But the other thing that is calming down the physical is the knowing that not knowing is ok too. Accepting what may occur or what may not happen is fine. That what will be will be. Kind of like being a dog.
