Stress at work
Stress at home
I care too much what others think
I care too much what other do
I think about my past and I’m sad
I think about my future and I get anxious
Life is too short to worry about every little detail
To worry about being perfect at work
To stress over the unknown future
Feel the liberation of not giving a shit about what others think of you
Let that huge grin shine into the darkness of worry, stress, and anxiety over what everyone else is thinking & doing
Love is what truly matters
There is much wisdom found in the mountains.
Knowledge found in a flowing stream.
Follow the waves as they form & dissipate in the ocean.
Go to mother nature.
Sit, walk, & listen.
Let her heal you of your suffering.
Let the wind dry your tears.
The answers you seek will be found here.
Because you are an extension of her beauty.
There is darkness
Greed, fear & even hatred
There is light
Compassion, forgiveness & love.
I acknowledge both
For there can not be light without the dark
I vow to acknowledge the greed, fear, anger, and hatred with me
But to feed the seeds of love, compassion, and faith
To love both of them unconditionally
To acknowledge the light & darkness within myself and all
Large waves damage my ship as I navigate the path unknown.
But my anchor stays steady.
It has been with me since my first moment of life.
And will last until my final moment.
My breath is my anchor.
It will help me navigate any hard times.
Breathing in I find my balance.
Breathing out I know that all will be okay.
Breathe in peace.
Breathe out gratitude.
Breathe in I know that my anchor will hold strong.
Who am I to judge?
Deciding what others should or shouldn’t do?
I am no God or ruler.
Today I will begin the process of letting go of judgment.
For I too have fallen short.
I will allow love to fill the space where judgment once was.
To work to understand those I disagree with.
To understand that people change in their own time.
First I will begin the journey of letting go of self judgment.
Non judgment day has arrived.
Through the darkness, we shall rise
Rise like the sun
Bringing light into the darkness
For we are all holy men & women
Lost in the sea of fear
We have forgotten our true nature
Of compassion & love
We are disoriented by distraction
Haunted by our past
Paralyzed by the path unknown ahead of us
We cling to material wealth & status
Fearful to take risks for the true life we desire
So how do we begin this journey?
The answer lies within you
No matter how dark life can get.
All will end.
Impermanence surrounds each moment.
Everything will be okay.
Allow patience & faith to guide you.
