It’s happening again friends -I’m ready to throw it all out and start over. Jean says I ‘ve got a case of the Holly Golightly Mean Reds. And I do. But instead of focusing on all those things that worry the angstyness right into my marrow, I’m going to start with only putting on the just right and making the just enough. I’m going to create with hands full of joy and a big spoonful of hope. I get agitated constantly with wanting to do more and fix the big It All.
I’ve ranted and raved about all the ways in which we are hurling ourselves into a bigger economic & resource crisis with the way we consume, expect instant gratification, and buy buy buy.
And I’ve asked myself what is it we’re trying to achieve? After years of The Mean Reds I’m looking at myself and realizing I have no idea what we’re after as a culture or a country, but I know what I’m after.
I’m after a life with soul.
To achieve that I have to:
Try to quiet my mind (I hate that part).
Let go and get rid in order to make room.
For space inside my own life.
Be gentle and kind with my self, my body, and my limitations.
Put good fuel inside my body.
Keep what’s working.
oh friend. i love you. you are wise, even with the mean reds.
