“The best we can do then, in response to our incomprehensible and dangerous world, is to practice holding equilibrium internally - no matter what insanity is transpiring out there.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
Ever have one of those days?
Sure, you have....we all have.
Trouble is....sometimes a few too many of them get strung together and you're left feeling like that's all there is.
That's how I'm feeling today.
I feel like I've been getting sucker punched by Life lately...ain't that a B*TCH?!
Normally, I can use the tools at my disposal to pull myself out of a funk....things like gratitude, being of service, praying for a miracle.
I feel like I've emptied my toolbox and nothing seems to be working.
There is some CRAZY stuff going on in my professional life...things so far beyond my control that it's ridiculous to think that I can change the situation. And yet.....I keep looking for the loophole. You know, that one that I missed? There's gotta be a way to do something, right?
It's pissing me off because now I've let it grow into a resentment...and you know what they say about those:
Like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die?
It was suggested to me tonight, by someone I trust, to recite the Serenity Prayer...as many times as it takes. Kind of like a mantra....over and over and over and over and over again.
I'm gonna give that a try.
I'll report back in a few days & let you know how THAT worked.
In the meantime, just for the record...
p.s. Sorry for the rant...
hopefully I'll be back to my blissful yoga bubble self next time.
Peace & Love
