On Sunday I went along to a Mindfulness event hosted by Paddy Brosnan. Paddy is mindfulness teacher and inspirational speaker. I was lucky enough to be invited to attend and I thought I might learn something.
Yet again I’ve given myself a bit of a kick up the backside and told myself to ‘cop on’. This old depression thing is a devil, one minute I’m riding along the crest of a wave, the next I’ve fallen on my surfboard and overwhelmed by a wave….but I have so much to be grateful for.
I feel like a pinball this week, bouncing from one thing to another.
A safe place, a friendly face,a golden globe of light.A dancing flame that speaks my nameand chases away the night.The shadow is there but there’s warmth in the air,Held in the haven of this room.A sacred hour, a healing power,That helps diminish the doom.
It’s been a mixed bag of emotions this week. I feel like I’m on a wave, sometimes I’m a champion surfer riding the white horses, other times I’m struggling to stay afloat. I have found a new thing that helps though.
So there I was today minding my own business, going about life, thinking I was doing OK….well as OK as I could be in my present state of mind….it was too good to be true. I should have known it.
