I woke up today and realized I have been all about books alone lately 🤦♀️🤩 but today I have decided to post about something other than books! How’s your week going so far? I’ve been in a writing slump for a while now. I think it has something to do with me getting little sleep lately by doing so much more than I used to🤷♀️ I do that sometimes 🙈 taking on way too many things all at once.
If you’ve been in a slump before, you’ll know how disempowering it feels. It feels like you are stuck and can’t get anything done. Does this ever happen to you? How do you over come it? Please do share… before then, let’s talk about serenity.
Serenity is the balance between good and bad, life and death, horrors and pleasures. Life is, as it were, defined by death. If there wasn’t death of things, then there wouldn’t be any life to celebrate. – Norman Davies
The thing we’re all looking for is happiness, and if we achieve just a modicum of that or even a little piece of serenity even for five minutes a day, we’re very lucky. -Mel Gibson
Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it. -Kevyn Aucoin
When was the last time you sat down in the discomfort of your silence? When was the last time you fell in Love with your spirit? Not the spirit of another, but your own worthy energy. Your heart isn’t just a heart. It is the source connecting you to everything here on earth. When you are disconnected to you, you are disconnected to everything. It creates a blockage to energy and energy connects us all with all of life. When you feel this blockage arise and it’s really uncomfortable to sit alone, begin with where you are at. Release judgment against yourself. “I do not judge you for thinking anything you think” Feelings and thoughts are just feelings and thoughts. The more time you sit in the discomfort of silence, the more comfortable silence becomes. Silence is always a reliable comfort. Your heart is always a reliable comfort. Humans are unreliable. Within you is where you should always begin. We must always make efforts to sit alone, because alone is where we discovers the depths of us. So when life feels lonely, sit alone. Even if it doesn’t feel lonely, sit alone. When sitting alone feels uncomfortable, move if you have to, But then go back. You must learn to rely on what’s within. It must be a practice. It’s normal to become frustrated. Again, release judgment. You will begin to find your rhythm, your stillness, your creativity. You are a spirit this world needs to experience.
Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored. Earl Nightingale
Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. Bradley Whitford
I have seen many storms in my life. Most storms have caught me by surprise, so I had to learn very quickly to look further and understand that I am not capable of controlling the weather, to exercise the art of patience and to respect the fury of nature.
Be all that you can be!
How’s your week going? Smashing reading goals? 😁 Are you ready for WWW Wednesday? Sorry I skipped last week but we are back on tomorrow… so get ready!
