Every day seems to be a different adventure full of different emotions, sometimes dealing with emotions from the day before only this time the emotions are a little different with a new perspective. Sometimes I really wish I could just turn off my brain and not think.
People tell me about meditating and how they get to this point where they really aren’t thinking about ANYTHING at all. What the heck? How can you not think about nothing? I really have tried, but a thought sneaks in there and that leads to another thought and then bam, flood gates are open and the thoughts keep coming in.
I’ve been thinking a lot about life and the fragility of life and last night, when I wanted to read, I instead sat at the bar at my home away from home (The Rooster & Moon), buried myself into writing a letter and then, with permission from one of the cafe’s proprietor’s, wrote “You are loved” and “You are beautiful” on all of the silverware wraps.
Maybe the best way to cope with sadness and being aware that life is so fragile is to just spread the love even more and let people know how much they are loved, even if you don’t even know them.
