Stop Scaring Myself!


When you wake up in the morning you don’t have to scare me about getting up. The day will not feel like death because G hasn’t called. There is not a black hole I will fall into as I attack the endless slough of teaching and thesis work I have on my plate. I will not make mistakes every step I take today. People won’t be angry with me everywhere. My mother is in Arabia so she can’t show up at my door and insert herself into my life. I will give myself plenty of good treatment today: yoga, essentrics, meditation, insightful readings, delicious and healthy food. I will smile at a couple of things, enjoy moments, offer a kind gesture or two, try to find ways to stay relaxed all day. I will keep on working on changing my life so that none of it feels scary anymore.

  1. Those sound like healthy, important and gentle things to be doing for oneself. The kind gestures are really the things that make my day – getting out of my own self. And they make me feel good as well. Smile…keep smiling!

    Lovely post – made *me* smile!

    Blessings,
