Feeling restless in Tucson. . . .

My mind never stops.  Never.  I seek, I reflect, I rewind, I consider and reconsider.  I love the way I walk in the world.  Mostly.

And that is just my mind.

Grappling with the life that surrounds me is not always about confrontation, it is about reflection and conscious living.

Alas, the time has come for me to silence my mind and allow my quiet to overtake my restless mind.

AND I am constantly moving.   Work. Dogs. Parenting.  Exerce. Did I say dogs?

Many journeys happen with these feet.

Many journeys happen with these feet.

This week, I found myself struggling with the constant motion in my world.  To be fair, I am coming off of an active period of work;  we found a new dog last Monday; and I don’t seem to have enough time to chill.

The good news is that I am acknowledging reality and looking for ways to quiet my restless spirit so that it becomes possible for me to walk a little more gently.

Part of quieting my mind is to quiet the constant inundation of information that is surrounding me.

  • Turn off Facebook
  • Stop texting
  • Give myself set times to connect online
  • Allow uninterrupted productive time
  • Exercise daily
  • Take time to chant, to read, and sit in silence

The time has come for my restless mind and my restless body to stop and become more present with what is.
