Which End Is Up?

Dec 24, 2012 by

Do you ever feel like you’re living inside a dryer?

It’s dark and you can’t see what’s in front of you. You are tumbling all around. No matter where you move the door keeps you trapped. There is no way out and no way to tell which end is up.

At the moment my life feels like I am on permanent rotation!

Nothing seems to be flowing. Stress is at a high level and the holiday craziness isn’t helping any. I’m finding that my brain is scattered in a million places and I can barely focus on anything.

My typical routine of going through life isn’t working.

Gradually I’m figuring out the balance between feeling sorry for myself and changing the things I can.

Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

The Courage to change the things I can,

and the Wisdom to know the difference.

Yep, that.

In these tumultuous times it is hard for me to center myself. I don’t want to deal with this insanity. I’m finding that more than ever I want to escape into a game. Just for a little while (ha!). And yet I want to learn how to be part of the world as well.

One minute I’m ok and the next minute I’m not.

Can you relate?

On this Christmas Eve I am reflecting on all the blessings I have in my life. I appreciate all the lessons I have learned. My belief is that we don’t grow if we aren’t being stretched. I have many wonderful teachers around me. At the time they may be a huge pain in the ass, but in the end they are truly beneficial to my very existence.

My hope for you is that you take the time to savor the blessings in your life. You may be tumbling around but they are there for you to see.

Many blessings my friends. Take Care!
