There’s a reason I don’t teach or take classes during Squam . . it’s because I am an all or nothing kind of personality. I don’t have any access to the ‘moderation’ dial when it comes to things I put my heart into.
If my focus is on something I am passionate about– it gets all of me. (Of course, for all you mathematicians out there– the opposite is equally true, ahem).
This is becoming more and more apparent to me this Spring.
Spring– you get me every. single. time. *shaking fist at the sky*
This year, I thought I had outsmarted this season that inevitably swings me around and dumps me on my head. Ha. Just another example of my ludicrous illusion of control.
It’s the abundance that overwhelms me in this season.
So much to take in. SO much stimulation on every front– visual, scent, sound— it makes me want to pull a total Eckhart Tolle and just sit on a park bench for 3 months and do nothing but be in it, observe it — but of course, life has demands, obligations, commitments and you know– dogs.
We, the zen creatures who are only ever in the present moment.
Go ahead– we can handle it. We’ll just drop more deeply
into our happy place while you create a story about how busy you are.
Knock yourself out, you crazy human.
Ahhh, thanks for the reality check, Daisy– am feeling better already.
