I got the Medicine

I got all of the medicine I asked for this morning. I got stressed out, overwhelmed, lost myself, nearly flipped out, yelled at my internet speed and at my computer, cried, and then managed to get centered again. I had a feeling as I woke up this morning that I might feel that way and sure enough, it’s what I created.

Just even minutes later I was able to look back and laugh about it. I always look to my kids for recovery time. Ever notice how a child can lose it and cry so hard they whimper, yet 10 minutes later everything is more than just totally fine, they will literally be ecstatic about life again. They don’t spend the rest of the day in a funk because their morning was off for a few minutes. They bounce back, and they bounce back happy.

I’m reminded again - gentleness is everything. I’m remembering to be gentle on myself for having a hard time, and gentle on myself for needing a moment to recover. Maybe all I need is a few minutes to get in alignment and feeling good again. Maybe all I need is to make a list of the things I want to accomplish and get myself organized. Maybe all I need is to go hug a really big tree. Whatever it is, gentleness is my jam.
