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.
Saturday was a busy day for me and I was anxious about it (no surprise there). There were two events I wanted to attended so I decided to try to brave it.
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.
As I haven’t been picking up the camera I’ve been messing about writing. On one of my walks I was inspired to write this – it’s a sort of poem (I think!)
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.
