When making goals I always try to focus us on remaining grounded. There are some days that life is very surreal for us and it's hard not to get cocky; I don't just mean mentally but spiritually as well. I am often saying, "If we get too far off the ground please bring us back down. "
Right around new years we had some difficulties with Steve's health, he felt so bad one night, I almost called the ambulance. "I'm sorry but I think it's just my time baby, I love you," he kept typing through tears. This obviously is a phrase I've heard before twice when he did die on me, so it makes me sad and panic.
Thankfully (so so so very much thankfully) I was able to get Steve back to health and then I had to bring myself back to zen. I was so off balance so I increased my mediation side of life; which I'm still doing because it's been life changing. We have had some really great days and great things happen the past week and it's made us float on positive energy.
We've learned that these moments aren't permanent and there is only this very moment so that whenever we feel happy, we do easily need some grounding because let's be honest we like floating. :) Not a bad thing as long as we can float while keeping both feet on the ground.
So today I got some negative feed back on instagram and I had the automatic, "huh well that was mean, who the bla bla bla..."but then I stopped....
There it was, I asked that if I got a little too off the ground to bring me back. I'm back and yes for those who worry I'm fine, the comment isn't what the focus was in this and when I was able to see that I was able to shake it off.
So now I am feeling grounded but full of positive floaty energy.
Oh but for all intensive purposes, remember that words do matter. Choose them wisely. Be nice. :)
