Where do you go when you need to think? I am always “thinking” inside my head. It’s easy as a master in multi-tasking as a women. I am learning to Live in the “moment” and Live in the Now by reading books by Eckhard Tolle and Rhonda Byrne. Staying positive. I comparartamentalize my roles in my life. For example when I do go to work I take off my “pretend hat” of being at home. When I am at work I put on my “work hat.” This keeps me focused on only that which is in front of me and keep my thinking only where it “counts.”
What do you do when you need to restore yourself, to ready yourself to take on the coming week with energy and verve? I live each day for “that day only.” I like to live one day at a time, as many whom have gone through the A.A. Program. We cannot change our future, nor the past, but for TODAY we can do something, anything, and that is all that we need to do…that one thing, even if you are depressed and cannot get out of bed, the solution is to just get out of bed and do anything, create with crafts, read a positive book, organize, etc.
How do you get your sense of humor back? I am a very serious minded person, very analytical and having a sense of humor only comes to me when “wit” it needed on the spring of a moment, but I do not live to have a sense of laughter but to brighten others by a saying, quote, photo or telling a story. For example, put yourself in others shoes, maybe the person who is rude to you, lost a loved one, a pet, job, etc. Maybe that mad driver just had to get to the hospital to watch their baby being born. Maybe a parent needs to get to the hospital because of a car accident that their kinship was involved in. If you really think it is bad today, you are NOT living to the fullest. Nothing is bad. Just putting two feet on the ground is a Miracle that will get you through each moment of each day as each step comes and goes. Usually the bad always turns out to be a “blessing in disguise” and even in hard times we all learn a lesson that we needed to learn.
How do you recharge your groove? My home is my sanctuary. I Love to be at home, to read, to clean to organize, to be alone, having no noise, quiet and stillness, just knowing that I can be thankful for a job, a place to live, shelter, a car, and so many things that many do not have. My motto: reading brings life to you not away from you!
