Balance in the midst of chaos – my thoughts and thanks.

Do I have all the answers? No, I don’t and I guess no one else does. Each week we wake up to stuff that sends us on a tailspin of holding our breaths, pensive thoughts etc, but I’ve learnt and learning each day to hold on to the still peace within me even when the sails of my ship are battered in the wind and my candid advice to anyone would be to hold on to their sanity in the midst of chaos and be thankful for life.Harmony, Relax, Rock, Moqui, Stone

I woke up yesterday with a hot, scratchy throat, heavy head and stuffy nose and I knew that finally the cold that I had tried to outrun had caught up with me. I went in briefly to work, did two miserly posts for my blog and shut down all gadgets to take a long nap and I woke up later still croaky and groggy but thankful for the rest.

It’s been some tedious weeks of school activities, work, writing a book, blogging, networking and living life in a hyper-stressful World. However, I realize that fretting over these things serves no purpose other than to make one feel more stressed about them so I always try to break my thoughts and to-do’s into bits and pieces to get them balanced and done. I achieve far more when I do that and I’m also able to eliminate chaff that doesn’t fit in anywhere.

The hours spent yesterday shutting off all negative noise from TV and internet allowed my brain to rest and wake up rejuvenated. I am totally thankful that the kids will vacate tomorrow for 2 solid months of Summer holidays…bliss 🙂

I may not have all the answers to today’s troubles in our present World, but I have my thanks and gratitude to a simple life and a loving family.

Be thankful

  1. Wonderful post – I DVR the morning news each day and catch up in the evenings and as I read your words which mirror my thoughts so closely, I realized the key to why I may not be sleeping well – After one devastating news story after another, most of which get my full attention and leave my mouth hanging open in bewilderment, it’s no wonder that my soul is at unrest, leaving my body wide awake as well. Changing that habit is now a new way for me to ‘un-plug’ as well.
