Conscious Management

 

“It was a Friday afternoon. Richard had noticed that events were cowards: they didn’t occur singly, but instead they would run in packs and leap out at him all at once.”
— Neil Gaiman

 

Life erupting at breakneck speeds. Sometimes it seems that we go from event to event crisis to crisis putting out one fire only to find out that two more have taken their place. We definitely live in a world faster than the one I remember growing up. I don’t know that that’s a bad thing. We are all learning new time and stress management skills all the time yet sometimes I wish things would slow down and just stop. I used to say routinely that I would like to know what a routine day was like because each one feels widely different than the last.
Yet i realize that it is not necessarily life that has to slow down but me. I have to take the time to enjoy each moment. I need to meditate for awhile each day and not do anything. Yes, there are always things that are calling for my attention and time yet it is not always necessary to heed the call. I am not saying that there is a need for strict rules. I tend to rebel against those anyway. More that I need a way to give body, soul, family, friends and work enough attention each according to need. In other words I have to make conscious decisions. The unconscious ones tend not to work anyway.
Blessings, G

  1. I really enjoy your artwork and the words you put with them. Everyone always says the world is speeding up, but maybe we are just trying the wrong things? The world children see is different from the grown up world, operating with no concept of time. Maybe that’s why it seems things have changed – things haven’t actually changed, just our view of them. Which is easily fixable! I think people were made to live, look after what they have, and play. We don’t need any more than that. We can be responsible and safe without being adults and following all the rules! When I look back on things that have stressed me out, usually I find they weren’t things that mattered at all so the only concious decision I want to make is to live in the moment, forever. I’ve been trying that since january, and it’s a balancing act, but things have become much simpler.

    1. Yes…An improv class I took this past year helped so much. Thinking in the moment of what in the universe we are responding to and what we are offering and nothing else
