I am always making these recommendations of self-care. Get regular massages. Eat a healthy diet. Get some activity. Find a church home or good friends you can trust. Breath. Pray. Meditate.
Sometimes when I get all caught up in whatever it is I get caught up in, I need to stop. Collaborate. And Listen. (I hope you are laughing) So I stopped, collaborated but I could not for the life of me listen. My mind was so jumbled and foggy and loud! So I went for a walk.
My friend “M” has given me an open invitation to come walk her “Laughing Labyrinth” any time I please. So I walked. And as I listened to the snow crunch under my feet, my mind quieted. And I continued to walk. I focused on the path set before me, careful not to veer left or right, I could hear the nature.
And I can hear my mind was quiet…
And I could finally make my request. I prayed my little heart out. And when I was done I left a little gift.
Then my mind had peace. Peace that surpasses my understanding.
