I woke up this morning to a pounding headache. This has been happening more than usual, so I sat down to ponder. Eying my Yoga mat in the corner, I rolled it out and got into child’s pose. That is how I feel this morning, like a child.
There was a day when I woke up feeling worse than this every morning. On November 10th, I get to celebrate 17 years sober. When I wake up like this, it makes me grateful that it’s not a self induced feeling. This too shall pass.
I went in search of something pretty and found this on one of my favorite Facebook pages, Rantings of a Beautiful Mind. Even the name of the page is pretty and I always find something there. I thought about taking a Facebook fast, but enjoy encouraging people there. Maybe God is trying to remind me this morning, it’s not all about me.
As I sit here and look at my hard wood floors, I see dog hair and grass. This is hard on me because I enjoy clean floors. I have learned to handle dirt and clutter at times, but I just swept yesterday. The dog has been home less than a day and they are covered again. I saw it when I rolled out my Yoga mat. My question was, ‘Is it going to cling to the mat?’
What else is clinging to me from life? It makes me angry when my life is not pretty. I have allowed it to become unbalanced and off center. God is my center and everything about Him is good. What in my life is not good? I won’t burden you with the list. God is working in my life and He has out the broom. I have a broom and I’m not afraid to use it.
