Sometimes, I get overwhelmed. And if I didn’t have as much control over my surroundings, I’d feel overwhelmed a whole lot more. A couple of weeks ago, I lost control of my surroundings. I was going out too often, trying to do too many things at once and meet too many new people. My nights started to blur into each other and I couldn’t remember who told what story or if I was repeating myself. What I needed to do was remove myself for a few days and spend some time alone, but I was so excited with what was going on in my life that I didn’t take a break. When it rains, it pours, right? Well my life was in a torrential downpour… and all the sudden their were clear skies. I had a moment to think, to relax and, of course, to worry.
In my few days of thinking, here’s what I’ve come up with: I’ve put a lot of good into the world this week. I left big tips, I made people laugh, I smiled at everyone that I saw and I generally made the people that I was around happier. I wore sundresses, I ate good food, I even went on a RUN (this is a very big deal). To top it off, this morning, I was watching Community when I looked out the window and saw… snow. Beautiful, gentle, soft, sweeping snow. So I took a few moments of my morning, wrapped in a thick cable knit sweater, sipping my coffee and sitting on my windowsill to think about my beautiful week. All in all, I had a great week. So in the end, after putting all this good into the world and being strong when it was much easier to be weak, I feel that if something is good, it will happen and if it’s bad, then it won’t happen.
I know it’s simple, but it helps.
