Tranquility

I am popping back by my blog, because something wonderful is taking place.

I think I found my balance ~ finally.

You know how they say, you have to hit bottom in order to rise even further? Well, last night, yet another great fear enveloped me. After facing that fear head on, I tell you this today - some miracles have taken place.

No, I am not employed. But other great things are happening.

I have found a bit of inspiration. I spent the morning answering emails, FB messages and the like. Nothing life changing there. But I did come across a wonderful article that reminded me of all of the good stuff that is in store on this first day of Fall. It was titled, "Nine Reasons to Love a Healthy Fall." I don't know what it was about this little list, but it sort of put things in perspective.

Following that, I was blessed to watch such an adorable video. Don't laugh - it was a BBC montage of baby animals in the wild. I can't help it, it melted my heart. I watched it several times. Sort of put me in a good mood.

Then I went on to watch a quick movie. One of the suggestions was some little "unknown" called "The Encounter." It was low budget, but the message, phenomenal. Only an hour and a half, and I recommend, if you need a little inspiration, give it a go.




If you have read "The Shack," it might remind you a little of that "chance encounter."

After that really sweet movie, I obviously was drawn to reading more of my book, "Surviving a Spiritual Mismatch in Your Marriage," and again got amazing advice.

Then, following lunch, I decided to lay in my sun room with the fan on, grab my little eye mask, and listen to a beautiful meditation on one of my Itunes podcast.

Can I just say it?

Miracle cure - all of the above.

I'm in a better place, and I thought I should share that. Or document it for myself. Or whatever.

Need a fix? Try that combo and see how you feel!

This is just too weird. Strange. And then, maybe not. Guess what movie I watched yesterday? Go ahead. I'll wait. THAT'S RIGHT! The Encounter! It really was low budget but YES! It was inspirational! And just when I needed it.

Wow. I think you wrote this for me. But how could you? When you wrote this earlier today, and I only gave into the thoughts in my own mind just a short while ago. Hmmm...must be something in the universe that let me know to come and read this right now. Because I have the fear feeling your wrote of in the first part of this post. And boy oh boy, am I glad to know that you found a way to get out of it. Here's hoping it will work for me, too.

Peace, my friend. One second at a time.

Sometimes when your mind is racing all you need to do is slow your body down. I'm glad it made you feel better!

I'm reading a wonderful book on Buddhism and it says that fear is the final block to getting what we want and our fear gets greater when we're closing in on big change. Poorly paraphrased by me but I love that- it makes me feel all right about being afraid. Also, not to be angry about it.

Isn't it weird how the seemingly smallest things are usually the most potent? I'm glad you're finding your balance. Keep that chin up, babe!
