We have all gotten used to wearing masks (the physical ones). We have been used to masks on an emotional level too. Each of us wear masks to hide our true feelings. The “I’m fine” mask is well known.
The “I’m fine” mask does not de-fine you at all. Inside that mask hides our true feelings. May you could take the emotional mask that you wear inside your mind to meet a pen and a piece of paper. Journal your feelings. Not lofty or poetic just pure undiluted feelings on a page. It is a way of unmasking your feelings in a safe way. Let your feelings drop onto the page, draw them, write them, let the pen write them for you. Let the emotional mask that you wear be heard on the page. That way you are not running away from your feelings, not fighting inside your head, not stuck in the emotions of your mind. If you can write a couple of pages in the morning you can unmask your worries.
Take the time to let go of all those thoughts, worries, emotions. Take the five minutes. Take the ten minutes. Keeping your physical mask intact let go of the emotional one and hand it over to the page, start a new chapter, let the pen guide you, its your journal, your journey, your life, let it flow.
What’s the Story
Stay up to date with my take on the world
When I was out walking my hair flapped like one of those dogs with long ears. I lasted five months. Then drastic measures had to be taken.
As we become so familiar with the word “restrictions” where we are all asked to control our actions which limit us is many ways. How could you turn that into a positive?
As we move forward from this pandemic we are asked to continue to stay in our own bubble as much as possible. We can visit family and friends but being mindful of washing our hands and continuing to wear masks and keep that social distance of two metres.
This morning I woke up, showered and dressed. As I put on my shoes, I didn’t notice the pebble there.
My watch pings. My phone vibrates. My email dings. It’s as if there is a message everywhere every moment saying something like “hurry I’m speaking to you – can you not hear the vibrations – get stressed – I’m important – answer me – be at my beck and call – now – now – now – vibration – vibration – vibration.
Last week I had a second cataract operation. The left eye this time.
I don’t know about you, but every so often my emails get chock-a-block with rubbish.
I’m sick of it. They never stop. It seems like the whole world is shouting at me:
Listen to my audio and take a moment to consider Healing in Covid Times.
A long long time ago, the glimmerman lit the gas lights in the streets when it got dark. He lit his lights so people could see, so they could find their way through the darkness.
Comedy is so important right now. When you laugh you send happy feelings throughout your body.That has to be good for your immune system. And we need to keep our immune system happy and healthy.
We have all experienced our safety and connection being threatened, but, we can adapt, change and grow
