I've broken my own rules recently.
I've mentioned before that I don't watch/read/listen to the news and my sensitivity levels require that. I'm no use to anyone if I'm a nervous wreck. But in the last few weeks that has changed. Necessarily perhaps, given current world events, but it has reminded me that it's not a good thing for me. Not seeking out news doesn't mean that I don't know or care what's going on, but it does mean that I keep my sanity, health and perspective. So I'm going back to basics and doing what I need.
I also regret the post I linked to yesterday. This was never intended to be a political space and perhaps the ramblings of my mind are not helpful to throw into the equation at the moment.
I care deeply about humanity, equality and peace and I hope that nothing I've ever said has suggested otherwise.
So I shall be keeping things simple. For me it's important to focus on the ordinary, the everyday, now. I found a piece of paper in a drawer the other day that said:
'Your life is never not this moment.'
There's a good reason why I've kept that piece of paper all these years.
