Excuse Me While I Get Centered!

It can be so hard sometimes to stay centered when so much is going on around me. Distractions seem to be everywhere and without even realizing it my mind strays away from what’s really important – ME.  Funny how it almost sounds selfish, but if I am not running like a well oiled machine then how useful can I really be?

I noticed that my tolerance is kind of low lately.  It is exhausting to constantly listen to oblivious people complain about their lives.  Why is this happening to me?  What did I do to deserve this?  When will I ever have some good luck?  Nothing good ever happens to me? Blah blah blah. I posted on Facebook the other day, “Would you like some cheese with your whine?”  I didn’t get much of a response though LOL.

I realize though, that it is my job to put up that invisible barrier and block out all the negativity.  I can’t allow other people’s misery to affect my balance… and lately I have been feeling terribly imbalanced.

I think dealing with RA has also made it hard for me to listen to people blabbing about things that they can in fact CHANGE.  I know it’s a bit cliche… but it’s a great saying nonetheless… SHIT OR GET OFF THE POT.  Either you are going to do something about your problems or you’re not, but for the love of God… STOP COMPLAINING AND PLAYING THE VICTIM.

I picked up a book that I read years ago, Happiness Now, and started reading it again.  I need to get centered and sometimes diving into a book that helps me examine myself is just what I need.

So I guess people will have to just understand –  it’s not that I don’t care – but my focus needs to be on me.

What are some thimgs that help you get centered and balanced?

  1. Things that help me are spending quiet time with nature. Surrounding myself with like minded people. The big one is taking off the blinders and seeing that there are those facing much tougher issues than I and doing it with grace. Keeping things in prospective helps to keep me balanced and humble.

    Great post V!

  2. The entire faimly went vegan last May. After we watched Forks over Knives how could we not. We had shifted to all organic and non GMO a year earlier. It for health reasons but it sure helps keeping a kosher kitchen and I don’t have to worry about timing either. Now, what to do with all these blue and red items? lol
