Pulling Myself out of a Pit

I woke up miserable, frightened, and stressed out today. Oh yeah, and in pain. The first thing I did was write about my experience and post it on my blog. That alone lifted a tremendous amount of angst. Now I’m already starting to feel my own energy, whereas before I just felt really super-duper weird. Next, I’m drinking coffee and turning on the music. Then I’m taking a scalding hot shower and dancing.

Now that I have expressed all the negative gunk, I’m also able to shift my focus. I cannot control outcomes, but I can take steps. And I can trust the universe, or if not the universe, then my own damn self. I am going to meditate and keep bringing my focus back to the positive, back to gratitude, back to what I can do. I cannot control other people or their decisions or their actions or how the world spins. But I can practice shifting my response to all of that.

Dear Universe, please support me in my healing path. I am doing my part.
