I've always 'wanted', ever since I was a little girl with chubby cheeks running
around in my swim trunks that matched my brothers, and no, I didn't have a shirt on either,
my mom would tell me time and time again 'you want to much.' So then I switched it up,
'Mom, I need this toy!' 'I need a puppy!'
Need, Need, Need. Want, Want, Want.
Need, Want, Need, Want.
It all seems to trivial now. Half the crap I 'wanted' I didn't even want!
I just thought I had to have it because everyone else had it or because we were at
the store and that meant I just had to buy something, right?
I've grown up since then, just a little, and I've started to realize things I
want aren't things at all.
Right now I want peace of mind. I've said it once and I'll say it again, I'm a worry wart.
I've been reading blogs on Tiny Buddah about peace of mind and letting go and all
that good stuff. They actually have some really inspiring ideas (who knew?!)
A couple that stuck out to me were:
-Set aside a time to worry each day. Write down your worries in a notebook as they
come to you and forget about them until the designated time. Then, worry your little
heart out until the time is up. This will make your day more efficient and make your heart
and mind a little lighter.
- Have a 'worry' burning ceremony. I couldn't think of a clever name so sorry about that one.
Anyways, write all your worries down on little pieces of paper and set a flame to them one
at a time, taking a moment for each to really 'let go' of the worry. If you're not too savvy
with fire just imagine writing it down and burning it, but I like to live life on the edge. ;)
Peace of mind should always go hand in hand with a smile so read this
and check out a few things to get those pearly whites a showin'.
Be sure to check out my blog from a couple days ago, I went cliff jumping!
It was wild! Pictures and videos included!
Thanks for checkin' in today, if you can't tell, work is pretty boring compared to last week.
Yeah, my answer was pretty deep like always but I'd love to hear yours..
let me know something you've always wanted! And don't feel bad if it's a material item,
everyone can splurge once in a while!
To all my Faithful Readers:
Here is a small peek inside my brain. Enjoy.
