I am a very positive and upbeat person and I am happy most days, but there are days that just feel different, and those days seem to be happening more and more often for me.
I feel at peace, clear headed, and so comfortable that it's almost like...wow, do I deserve to feel this good?
I have been trying for a while now to learn to live a calmer and more peaceful life, so maybe it is working in ways I had not expected.
I am a happy person, but I am also "wired" and overly anal as my children say. I never sit still and have to doing something or more than one something all the time.
I mentioned before that I started forcing myself out of my workshop by 9:00 p.m. so I can lay in bed with a book, a Sudoku puzzle or paper and pen. That has been transforming for me, and now I don't have to force myself any more, I look forward to it.
I've pretty much given up on T.V. as well. I got tired of all of the violence that saturates the airwaves. I'm actually down to two shows, American Idol and The Amazing Race along with some Cubs games and occasionally some golf if Tiger is doing well, and that's it.
I really think the changes I've made are allowing me to really be me, and I think that is what's bringing days of unexplained joy.
We are all here inside our bodies...it's just a matter of clearing out what we don't need and allowing ourselves to just "be".
Thank you Eckhart for some lessons learned!
