Zen: A state of focus that incorporates togetherness of body and mind.
I am grateful for my life, for my family and friends, for my space, for my job which allows me to live and thrive outside. I am lucky beyond measure, though despite all my blessings, life can be hard and it is hard. It's hard not to feel overwhelmed and bogged down by day-to-day stressors, the news, bills, expectations that bring disappointment and heartbreak. Often my heart is so full of love it hurts and sometimes it also just hurts. Life is suffering and often it is the result of the thoughts in my own mind. Our minds. Today has been one of those days that has brought me highs and lows, my feelings contrast so starkly from one point to the next that it is that of night and day. Forgive yourself. Feelings come and feelings go. We are everything and we are nothing. Stardust.
Remember that the one thing you can control is your breath. #zen #breath #love #feels #gratitude #everything #nothing #one
