Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

Serenity

J.  Other people's energy.  Quite interesting how people can leave their energy all over you.  I'm feeling very strange today with a sorrow and anxiety right in the middle of my torso.  A big hard lump that I know doesn't belong to me.  It's not a pleasant sensation, so I'm going to take off for a stroll by the water to see if I can rid myself of it.  
Compassion has it's drawbacks.  I failed to take your wise advice V. and wrap myself in that beautiful, invisible cloth that keeps others' pain out and I allowed it seep into my psyche.  The good part though, is that now I recognize the discontent as belonging to another.  Not mine....don't have to own it...don't have to hang on to it.  Breathe in.......breathe out.......

  1. I met a young man a few days ago, and I asked him what his work was. He told me that he sold 'Energy'. I said that was great, and asked him to sell me some, as I'm running a bit low right now.

  2. J~ Hope you were able to walk away your big lump and that the water washed away your anxiety. Love the serenity prayer by the way...it's a lovely one to carry around in the heart.
