It wasn't that I hadn't thought about how I was going to handle the lack of substance right now. It was more-so how I was going to compensate for the fact that there is so much simplicity to my life right now. No school presently... Just work and home. It seems as if home is not in a feng shui dimension and neither is work. The other day I began to think about joy. And what that emotion really means. It would appear that it means happiness and a collection of senses that evoke a smile upon your face. And I immediately thought about how many times a day we don't acknowledge the joy. How quickly our mood turns to the stressors around us. Then I began to think about what brings me joy. It's the simple glass of Reisling, snapping pictures of Baby Dolce, or the scent coming from the Lemon Mint Leaf candle from BBW, or even posting an article as simple as this. These things that bring joy to me are a couple of the things that add substance to my life. I sometimes can't help but think about what's going to happen when school begins and life really begins to speed back up. But even in the midst of the busiest times in life, I really truly try to manage how I react. And though that be the only thing that matters to me, my newfound love for meditation has led me to not care about the actions or reactions of others. Do you meditate? What are some quotes that keep you thinking?
In the words of Deepak Chopra:
"Pay attention to that unchanging part of yourself. It is perfect. At the source of life, and only there; one finds peace and harmony and the undisturbed contentment of bliss."
