So much insanity this week and last. I've made it through two weeks of boss-gone coverage. Did some stress eating. Went to see the movie It. I am looking forward to getting away soon, getting back into the routine.
The Prompt: Letting Go
This week's prompt:
"Let go or be dragged."
- Zen Proverb
First task is to sit for a meditation on that for 5-10 minutes or however long you feel is good to you.
...inspired by my drawing (which I have to admit I copied from another design online):
Sitting and waiting:
Is it holding on or
Is it letting go?
This is great advice and I love this quote. So true. Tough love. And yet...am I the only one who has trouble getting to 100% on this? It's hard to know when is the time to give up before quitting too soon. If you someone who has a tendency to quit too soon, you know what I mean. Where is the line between an endurance run and futility?
There's plenty for me to let go of (mistakes I've made, stupid things I've said, fussy judgments I have)...but what about the good stuff about being dragged: on a sled, when you're being rescued, in a tickle fight...
Half the time I'm just winging it. And I worry about it; but maybe I need to let go of that?
Now your turn.
