When Mindful Is Simpler Than A Full Mind

Too many times, I have absorbed the intensity around me. I have allowed myself to be consumed by the state of my circumstances or those of others. I’ve wrapped Me up into a tight ball of anxious, almost frantic to feel relief. I’m asking the same damn spiraling questions of why and how over and over, and somehow expecting a different answer to manifest.
It’s so exhausting. It has brought damage to whom I believe I am. I realized almost too late for some, that I was hurting those around me, and way past too late for others. I almost stopped caring, but I caught Me.
An awakening brought on a gentle wave of calm. I am the one in control of How I see what I face. I am able to slow and pause my racing World. My perception isn’t the only reality. I can reach out and touch new possibilities. I am confidently able to choose a different outcome than what seemed so foundationally overwhelming just moments ago…
Sometimes, simplicity isn’t as complex as we make it out to be. Reaching out, Is embracing in.
