Yup, into an extreme weather patch here. Winter is back with a vengeance . . . snow snow snow today, tomorrow, and until Monday. We're being warned to stay off the roads as much as possible.
Internal weather? Also stormy.
Oh yeah. I'm being challenged. A massive dump!!
Can't "fix" the external weather, of course I can't.
And can't fix the internal weather either. I can notice it. Now.
OK then Michael Neill: where are you when I need you?
I'm thinking that re-hearing some of those recent podcasts would be a good idea! Especially, "How to Have a Nicer Life".
And: I'm gonna do just that. It's just a low state of mind that will change when my thinking changes. Not blaming the world, not blaming me either. But I'm not going to take myself into fear, hopelessness, despair. Scaring myself with imaginary futures. Angering myself with imaginary pasts about what coulda shoulda woulda happened but didn't.
And I'm gonna stick with the intuitive eating with good stuff on offer -- a gorgeous kale salad with tuna/plain Greek yogourt ready to take for lunch.
And the gentle exercise too . . . coming right up!! Push ups, sit ups, mountaineers, squats, yoga stretch/balance.
Henry, we'll be taking our walks too!! My sheepskin boots may need to have their cleats deployed!! But you, at least, will be delighted with all the snow . . . burrowing and leaping joyously!!
How am I feeling right now? Yeah. I can see the potential . . . the potential . . . for a return to innate confidence. And calm. The simple feeling of being my own true nature.
A nicer life.
