Me, Now

by Stacey

You know when you catch a snap shot of exactly where your mind is, right here, right now?

This afternoon, I made brownies while drinking my favorite green juice.

And at first, it didn’t even seem strange. Until I put down my bottle of powerful, life affirming nutrients so that I could have two hands to measure out a cup and a quarter of white, refined sugar.

At first, I got grumpy. Why am I such a contradiction, I thought? I know what foods make me feel happy and strong but I don’t always eat them. I know that down time makes me feel better but I don’t always rest. I know that writing daily is the best thing for my soul but sometimes days will go by.

But perhaps what I need to do instead of getting discouraged is to take this picture to heart. There is a little goodness in the greens and in the sugar. In the wise choices and the fun choices.

For now, I think I will raise my green juice as I taste my brownies and love them both… because that’s just what is…

    Reminds me of a picture I took not long ago of a glass of the green juice I drink every day next to a bottle of the Diet Coke I also drink everyday. I think of Whitman (Walt, not my comedian) and feel bolder: “Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself. I am large, contain multitudes.”

    I totally hear your voice here, I think this is the best post I have ever read of yours!! When we stop “should-ing” ourselves we can let go of expectations with more often than not lead to disappointments.  In the yoga sacred text The Bhavagad Gita Krishna whom represents a higher power/God/the divine says “those who are motivated only by desire for the fruits of the action are miserable. For they are constantly anxious about the results of what they do.” So in other words be alike in success and defeat and you will find peace which is exactly what you just did!! Love!!

      Hi Laura! You are looking at work right now 🙂 I am not seeing clients at the moment so I can focus on writing! Hope all is well with you?

    “Everything in moderation…” Wise words way back when, and equally so today. Life without a little sweetness just isn’t worth getting out of bed for. Congratulate yourself for all you do to bring balance, health and satisfaction to your life. Bottoms up
