I’ve been experiencing a lot of pain recently. My back has been injured several times in falls, and I experience regular flare-ups of pain.
I also haven’t had a chance to sit and write much of anything recently. Some people go to church, some people meditate…me, I write. It smoothes over the bumps of life, centers me, and after a few weeks of little or no writing I begin to feel like I have ants crawling under my skin and I get so down and depressed!
Last night I was in a great deal of pain. It crawled up my back and attacked, sending stabs of pain behind my eyes. With a class to teach and other work to be done, I was dreading a long sleepless night full of tossing and turning.
I thought about the ‘power of suggestion’ and said to myself silently, “I am going to fall asleep now and dream good dreams. When I wake up in the morning I will be pain-free and feel fabulous and ready to put the finishing touches on tomorrow’s class program and even get a little bit of writing done. Tomorrow will go smoothly and I will feel wonderful!”
The day is not done yet. But so far I have been completely pain free and I’m actually feeling pretty darn good. As I put the finishing touches on the class program I thought to myself, “I ROCK!”
And that is the reason for this post.
How often do you look at your desk or a room in your house and feel hopeless, depressed, or intimidated? The paper or clutter is everywhere and all you can think of is, “I’ll never get this cleaned up!” And so the clutter stays and grows and spreads.
Change it around. Shake up your world. Tell yourself, “Today is different. Today I will take a huge step towards being organized. I will tackle [fill in the blank] and it WILL improve. I can do this, ’cause after all, I ROCK!”
Just try it.
‘Cause you do.
Rock, that is.
