Day 147

July 14, 2013

A friend reminded me today that I didn’t lose my compassion recently. Rather, I let my anger and fear go. I am grateful he pointed that out. I no longer feel that my soul is damaged. Instead, my soul got clouded. Like any rainstorm, the gray skies passed.

Mindfulness meditation has been immensely  helpful for me this weekend. I haven’t necessarily had time to meditate in the stereotypical fashion, but I’ve brought mindfulness to my chores and daily life in order to cope with difficult times.

Although I had a LOT on my list of things to do today, I carved out some time to work in the garden. While we were away on vacation, the weeds nearly took over the place! I found working outside tended to my aching spirit. Reconnecting with the outdoors replenished my deleted plate.

There is still a lot more catching up to do in the house and yard, but I am grateful for the time and energy I did have to do the things I did.
