Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.
This may bring incredible clarity, presence and focus. This is what is means to be a jellyfish.

Thursday Thought of the Day ~ Success, Impossible, and Things Are Just Things

I have SO many thoughts going through my head these days!
{it is even interrupting my sleep, which is not really common for me usually, but this week it is!}

It was hard to pick just one Thought of the Day, I have more than one huge thought plaguing me on a regular basis these days.

I am currently going through my year end reports for the taxes, and am realizing what a tough year it has been.

Change after change after change. When one thing wasn't working, I tried another, and then another.

As disappointing is was to see on paper just how difficult the year has been, at least I gave it my all and kept trying. 

Plus, I have been confronted with a coming year full of other big changes. A new chapter, I like to think. {Someday, I will write a book, and there really will be chapters.}

But these changes are daunting, kind of scary, and are making us examine the past 10 years of our lives. At times, it doesn't seem possible we can do everything we need to to to make these changes.

But I know that if we keep at it, and plan carefully, it can be done, it will be done! {It HAS to be done, the alternative is far scarier...}

It is this that keeps me up at night, the long list of things to do, what order and how they can be done. 
{Luckily, the 'should it be done?' question doesn't keep me up. We already decided it most definitely should be.}

The sad part is that much of this worry has to do with STUFF, and THINGS. The stuff and things we collect, that we save for no apparent reason. 

The things that accumulate over years and years.

We sometimes get too attached to stuff, forget that it is just things, and probably not important things. But letting those things go is sometimes so difficult.

Over the past week I have had to re-organize and re-imagine my life. And I have come to this conclusion:

I will continue to succeed (even if that means finding out what doesn't work), I will get it done (and therefore it will not be impossible!), and focus on the important things (which may not actually be things at all, and let the rest go).

A heap of thoughts for today. Don't let them keep you up .....

    1. Thank you Dakota! I start to feel the alternative is much worse I guess, so I keep at it.
