Two days ago I felt trapped in a hamster wheel that would never stop. I kept going on and on, doing all the things that needed doing. I wondered to myself how the busyness can happen so quickly after having two weeks of vacation. As I was gearing up to begin another day, I saw this quote:
“No matter how fast life is moving around us, there is always a place of stillness inside.” (notification on my phone from the Headspace app)
Hmmm, I thought to myself. Good to remember!
Shortly thereafter, my youngest granddaughter was at my house. She was watching an episode of “Bluey” (a cute Australian children’s show on Disney, Jr.). In this episode, Bluey sits to meditate a moment amidst chaos so she can remember something that she has forgotten.
The message became crystal clear. I should take some time to sit in stillness today. So, I did. I have been practicing yoga daily, so I took some time on the mat to give myself a breather and let my mind and body rest.
It was good. It was needed. The messages of that day had made their point.
Now to remember those messages when things get busy again.
