I don’t know about you, but I struggle at times with the idea that everyone and everything has a purpose. On really good days, I know this to be true. On days — not so good — I wonder, is there really a rhyme and reason to it all?
These doubting days usually come about when I have a day of not feeling so good. Yesterday, I had one of those days. My eyes were really hurting and I just had one of those blah days. I learned recently that where I am is having one of the worst allergy seasons ever so that explains the eye hurting, head stuffed up and general feeling of malaise. I’ve never been one of those people suffering from allergy-type blah so this was new to me. I hate taking medicine so I just let it be.
I didn’t even want to get on the computer to comment on all of my favorite blogs yesterday. We curled up on the couch and had a movie day. Yesterday was supposed to be our writing group’s time in the city, but one of the members was suffering from an illness and I was out of sorts myself.
So we agreed to cancel and reschedule. It was really for the best because I wasn’t in the mood to accept or give criticism. What’s the purpose of those days? When we feel bad? Is it the Universe telling us to rest, regroup? Just give in and feel “bad” knowing that this too shall pass.
A New Day and I’m Up and Going
It’s a beautiful sunny day here with low humidity. I’ve got a possible writing gig coming up so I’m looking forward to that — a new purpose, a new something to devote my energies to. Hubby loves to do yard work so he’s out trimming and mowing. We are avid planters and growers of things — flowers, herbs and such.
I’m summoning the strength to go out and join him and shake off the mundane-ness of yesterday and know that today will reveal another purpose for me. If nothing else than to get my hands in the dirt and know that — that new purpose will reveal itself in time.
So this post is as much motivational (I hope) for you as it is for me as I’m writing it. Time to get back in the groove of being positive and feeling good. I can usually pull that off but I have my days. Yesterday was that and today is THIS:
You become what you think about. — Earl Nightingale
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make our world. — Buddha
Whatever a person’s mind dwells on intensely and with firm resolve, that is exactly what he/she becomes. — Shankaracharya
So I’m off to feed my thoughts with nature, goodness and feeling everything is right with the world. I think that’s a good start for my purpose today and it can’t lead anywhere else but feeling better and that everything (including me) is exactly as it’s supposed to be. And you, too.
Press play below and Happy Monday everyone.
