Some days, it’s easy to smile. You wake up to the sounds of birds chirping, with the warm glow of the morning sun cradling your face. You take several deep, cleansing breaths standing beneath a perfectly cascading shower, just before drawing a smiley face on the steamed-up glass with your index finger… is this you? Or a dream of you…
Not every day starts this way, Or sometimes never at all. Sometimes you wake up to chaos, in your head or in the world around you. You hit snags, and bumps, and roadblocks at every turn. You try too hard, or don’t try enough, and things fall apart, or things fall short. You struggle, you fight yourself and other people, and you find yourself wishing you could stop the world so you could get off for a while… We have all been there, and all suffered the ups and downs.
When I am feeling stressed, I think of the little things to remember to smile.
The laughter of children on a playground, the call of the birds in the morning looking for food, the smell of that hint of rain coming. It is sometimes hard to slow down and find the little things to remember what is important in your life. The chaos we feel may feel sometimes impossible to push away. You need to start slow..
Sometimes to refresh myself I go for a walk, along the beach or through the park. “Life is a child playing around your feet, a tool you hold firmly in your grip, a bench you sit down upon in the evening, in your garden.”
When things go wrong, you can fall down or look up. You can shut down or wake up, all over again, starting from right where you stand… or where you are sitting. It is finding your place in the calm when all else seems to be chaos.
