Stop. Take a moment. Take a moment to yourself. Take a deep breath. Take a deeper breath. Take a moment to savour the taste of that coffee. Take a moment to see the blueness of the sky. Take a moment to feel the warmth of the sun on your face. Stop. Take.
The Guilt associated with taking time out for yourself should be taught a lesson. Tell that Guilt to shush. Tell that Guilt, no. You deserve this. You deserve some time to yourself. The magic of the quiet moment, alone with your thoughts.
I used to be quite afraid of the quiet. I used to be quite afraid of my thoughts. I am slowly realising if I don’t give my thoughts time, time to be understood, then who will. If I can’t offer myself space, space to be understood, then who will. I must master my own mind before I can place reliance on others. Seek happiness from within, peace from within, before looking out.
I haven’t posted for a while. Wondering if my content was useful. But it’s useful to me. Allows me to process my thoughts. Process my ideas. I went for a short walk, alone, yesterday. It allowed my mind to be calm for a moment and gave me back my peace. I would highly recommend it.
I took my moment. Took my moment to appreciate the blue of the sky, the green of the grass, the warmth of the sunset. This outstanding beauty that we don’t always see, because we don’t know what we’re looking for.
This is a wonderful day, I have never seen this one beforeMaya Angelou
