How many times have you spent a whole lot of time and energy worrying and stressing and being anxious and worrying about something you had no control over? And when the day finally came where you got to the other side or found out the result of the situation. Sigh…it was all okay.
Are you sick of people yet? It’s getting close to the holidays and everyone is moving at a faster pace than normal. People don’t read things slowly enough to get all the details. People forget to tell you they cancelled a meeting – and you drove 90 minutes in horrible traffic to get there.
If you get your fill from all of the outside sources that are attempting to feed you, there’s a chance that you’ll continue to be hungry even after consuming a big meal. The issue is what’s being served. Most of what we hear, see, smell and feel these days doesn’t taste as good as it used to. Our senses have been dulled, by overstimulation.
It’s not just me, the morning talk shows do segments on it every year, the dreaded family drama that come from getting everyone together. Thanksgiving kicks off the holiday season and brings us a mixed bag of anticipation and excitement, joy, disappointment, infighting and drama. Why? Because many families—and I know this will be shocking for you to read—are dysfunctional.
Those first few days it was all I could do to get myself to eat. I had no appetite. I spent every morning in bed journaling, and continuing my gatitude practiced for an hour, two hours or three. whatever it took to get myself up and moving. My energy was gone, drive non-existent and I wasn’t quite sure how to engage with the world because I had never experienced this before.
