Quietly Excited…


What excites you…a question posed on a Facebook status…I read the responses…clicked like on each of them…but…in that moment…I couldn’t answer…

Maybe because it was too early in the morning…well…it is hard to get excited about much before the rooster crows…but…Bertha…says it’s more than that…

According to her I’ve been taking myself too seriously lately…focusing more on the concrete…the absolute…the negative…the what is

And…she’s right…I have…I’ve had a couple of glitches…lately…that I have taken very seriously…

She goes on to point out…that my contemplation time…has become more of…desperation time…solve this…fix that…instead of a time…of filling my emotional tank…

Normally…contemplation time…opens my eyes…to the beauty around me…to the things that excite me…but when…I approach it from a negative place…it simply…leaves me…empty…and…that being empty is why I couldn’t answer the question…

Hmmm…

So…I contemplated for a few minutes…and…the answer came to me…

Quiet time

Quiet time…excites me…because…the more quiet time I have…the more…I become…the person I want to be…

PS…back to the contemplation chair…

    • It is so easy to let the busy-ness of life get in the way of what actually gives us the strength to do it. Hope you find that balance my friend…I’m working on it every day! 😉
