Life can be one juggling act after the other, can't it? We put on so many different hats in a day, is it any wonder we forget who we really are - I've put on four different hats already this morning and it isn't lunchtime yet: I was chief cook (I made my husband breakfast for a change), practical bargain shopper (at the grocery store), cleaning lady (the bathroom was a mess) and now I think I'm a blogger! If I hadn't taken time this morning to focus on who I really am, I'd be lost in the sauce til the day ended! The Kalico Kard below is a pretty good image of many of us (click here to purchase or to view a larger image) - it's message inside states a universal truth: Life is just one juggling act after the other", but we all know what the alternative is!
Many years ago I asked myself "Is this all there is?" - there was little balance in my life, only never ending work and responsibility! Years later I found that this question was answered for me. Upon reflecting, I discovered - that wasn't all there was to my life - my life was merely what I was giving to it - I had created the world I was living in! Something within me wanted to prove to me there was much more to my life! Unconsciously, I started making more time for joy, rest and relaxation - and when I did my life became more pleasurable and more joyful. I began to cultivate my desire and life changed to the same degree I gave myself to it!!
I've never made it a habit to think about aging -"old" to me is someone 10 years my senior! Those around me talk a lot about aging - they try to convince me that there's a certain time in life that we should start acting "old"! But inside me there's this wise little person who is the same today as she was yesterday and wants to be tomorrow - she wants to live each moment fully believing the rest will just happen naturally without thinking or talking about it! Maybe that's the way it's supposed to be!
