Over the weekend, I made a mess of a situation. Then spent the next few days rehashing it. Searching for where and how I went wrong, how I screwed up so massively, how I could do things better in the future. Frankly, I did a pretty good job of beating myself up. And that isn’t productive. What was productive and helpful was meditating. Breathing. Clearing my head. Ridding myself of all the self-depricating voices and the worries. Grounding myself. Coming back to my center. Gathering all my scattered energy. I came out recognizing I’m human. I screw up sometimes. I can also do things differently in the future. And I can take care of myself when my insecurities jump up and smack me! I wouldn’t be so hard on a friend as I was being on myself. I also recognized that mediation is crucial medicine for me. So each day I sit.
Wishing you a wonderful day! Take really good care of yourself.
