Last week I
fell off the wagon,
lost my mojo,
took a wrong turn into a bad neighborhood (in my brain),
and started to tailspin.
I don’t know when it started because I didn’t wake up until I was knee deep in the MUCK! The muck was a lot of comparison – during which I didn’t measure up very well against spiritual and wealthy entrepreneurs, mega-famous-online people that I admire, authors, heads of fantastic charitable companies, skinny chicks, happy people, and pretty much everyone I know.
This, in turn, led to a needy feeling. A void. A hole that I couldn’t fill with more information, lattes, chocolate chips, or arguments with my husband.
I did find I could dig it deeper with Facebook *, Twitter *, judging, analyzing, grasping and high levels of carbohydrates.
*These can be used for good or evil toward myself, incidentally.
So I sat myself down for a counseling session. “What do you need to do for yourself right now? What would help you?” I asked.
“Chia seeds,” I said.
I looked inquisitively at me. “Huh?”
“I need to wake up and eat chia seeds, soaked in almond milk and topped with blueberries and pumpkin seeds.
I need to get on the meditation cushion, or somewhere – to pause and connect.
I need to consider what I want to put out into the Universe, the Twitterverse and everywhere else.
I need to breathe.
I need to laugh.
I need to do The Work on my thoughts that infer I should be anywhere other than where I am in my business and my life.
I need to pray, out loud to the angels who are always waiting to be called upon, ready to spring into action.
Damn! I’m a good counselor! I took my advice. I am implementing it, and other self-care practices and things that I do to commune with my God.
Ya know, I have a conscious friend who has “Wake up” in Chinese tattooed on the top of her foot. I may need to go do that, too.
Who’s comin’ with me?!
