Are you tired?
Are you blaming this on covid? And all the ramifications?
Tired of trying?
Do you just want to rest? Properly and get some energy back?
Tired of effort?
Does it feel just so hard?
Tired of walking on eggshells round someone?
Being afraid of the reaction if you just be yourself?
Tired of the “shoulds” in your head?
Those shoulds that go round and round and don’t make any sense in the end.
Tired of expectations?
Your expectations? Expectations from others?
Tired of trying to be someone you aren’t?
Who are you really? What do you want for yourself?
Tired of the battle inside?
Thoughts arguing with thoughts. Questions and doubts and reassurances – who wins?
Exhausting, isn’t it?
What if you just stop in this moment and be here. You might ask – How?
What if you don’t ask how but just stop. Be in your body and feel whatever sensations there are. In a mysterious way, when you bring your attention to inside your body, this brings you to this moment. Not thinking about a pain or a discomfort. Being aware, being in it.
You can also do this with something beautiful outside – a flower, a painting, a sound – not to think about it, but to be at one with it by noticing and absorbing the beauty. Stopping and resting in beauty.
Even a moment of stopping can refresh you.
