In my quest for quieting my mind and hushing the anger, hurt, and resentments; I've found some peace. Little by little, each day, I take with honesty and attempt to do so with a quiet calm. I'm learning what forgiveness is, and reaffirming my compassion and understanding.
In my younger days, I would have dealt with my problems with indifference, revenge, negativity and self destruction, even running away from them was often the answer for me. Although I still do escape a lot through music, it's been my constant throughout my life; even at 8 years old and thinking Foreigner and Don Henley were the shit. I found that besides my daily shower being my "me escape" time I've discovered meditation. Introduced to me by a dear close friend; she found a meditation group that didn't scare you away with the horrid touchy feely garbage that marks most Buddhists to be associated with hippies. It's meditation while keeping it real. Lol. Quiet time.
So, daily, I remind myself to accept, move on, forgive, love, embrace, laugh, and create. I hope you can, too. It's lovely.
