Earth To Andrea

There’s a flurry of activity ~ lots going on and lots to ponder for these first couple of weeks into the new year. This used to be such a blessedly slow, take-a-breather and recoup season – wonderful for mindful writing and taking my delicious time to do so. Forget about it. Now it’s all I can do to keep up and if this is any indication of the pace I’m on for 2017 – then I just may have to “drop out” for awhile. (Remember that saying?). There are only so many leeks I can chop to use as a medatative tool in order to ground myself. Oh well, no one to blame or applaud but myself. We constantly make choices despite how trite they may seem at the time only to realize the full consequences in a somewhat startling manner later on. Just called Life.

Mindful Writing ~ 2014:23

I missed my mindful writing post yesterday.  I sat down to write at the end of the day and came up with “too tired to write, too cold to think,” so I went to bed instead.  Something did not feel right about posting just anything and calling it a small stone.  At the time it was not mindful.  Today however, after a good night’s sleep, it is honest enough to write about.  I am trying to simplify my life and this encourages a great deal of truthful appraisal and re-prioritizing.  Last night I wavered between fulfilling a committment I (happily) made to myself for the sake of the committment itself and staying true to the spirit of the goal.  In hindsight, I’m glad I went to bed.
