As a teacher, mother, and grandmother…I am obviously very familiar with the expression … Time- out! As in ” You are in time- out! ” But I was reflecting the other day how I think it is time to put myself in time- out… how? … by unplugging from the world for self-imposed joyful time!
For a long time now… I have admitted that the only thing I take away from my presence on Earth as the truth … my one firm belief … is that we are all connected under the sun …a single cell attached and sustained by unfathomable numbers of other cell formations that fabricate the great mysterious web of life… one beating heart. One Supreme Being.
But… in spite of all these ” connectives”…there comes a time when we need to seek refuge from the ever increasing worries and problems of the world… we need to consciously choose what makes us happy and intentionally plan how we spend our time finding fulfillment in the sheer joy of our own particular passions.
It is important to be able to be fully present in the moment without worrying that we are missing out on something in social media or instead of being happy about someone’s trip or excursion on FB we long for the same experience. Instead of being content in our lives and skin …we covet others…
What a waste of precious time this is… the only escape I seek is from too much disturbing daily news on the state of our country’s economy, our political divisiveness, putting greed and politics over ” we the people” ..too many politicians today are ” arch enemy” Robin Hoods…taking from the poor to make the rich richer. Come on now… REALLY! Wonder how these politicians sleep at night? Can you really see yourself in the mirror anymore? We sure can … and it ” ain’t ” pretty!
So until tomorrow…
Today is my favorite day- Winnie the Pooh
