TODAY I AM GRATEFUL FOR NOT!
SOMETIMES WE JUST NEED TO CHILL
what are you grateful for ~ please share…
You know when you have that conversation in your mind and you have it over and over and over again? Well today, while I was showering, (and why does everything occur in the shower by the way?) I was thinking about work and letting it consume me, as I have done every day for over a year now and I’m tired of it. So I decided that I was NOT going to let work interfere with my weekend…this is my time and I am not going to give work one more second of my mind. After I decided this, my mind was flooded with the poem below, which actually came into my head in song form. So there is a tune that goes with it, but I’ll let you make up your own if you so choose! 🙂
I pay no heed to you
This is what I choose to do
And you have no control of me
This morning I have set you free
Now you must go along your way
For you see, I’ve won today!
So would you be so very kind
As to please get off my mind
When ever will you understand
That you’re no longer in the plan?
I cut the cord and said goodbye
Be on your way, don’t even try
I’ve chosen to be sad no more
Let me show you to the door
You’ll no longer beat me down
I have tired of this frown
You start each day inside my head
But did you hear what I just said?
The conversation starts again
As you are trying to get in
But thrice I cut you from my life
My words are sharper than a knife
And all the time I wear this smile
Knowing you’ll be gone awhile
Oh you’ll be back again I know
But it’s getting easy to let go
My will grows stronger every minute
Especially without you in it
This battle it has gone my way
For you see, I’ve won today!
Today’s Prompt: Write a post based on the contrast between two things — whether people, objects, emotions, places, or something else.
Today’s twist: write your post in the form of a dialogue.
This is the difference between the left and right brain, aka Ego versus Nirvana.
The left brain is our logical thinker, it remembers our past and contemplates our future. It’s our language, it filters and processes all data. It’s our intellect, our decision maker, our ability to think sequentially, methodically, our ability to communicate with the outside world. Our Ego!
The right brain lives in the here and now, the present and only the present. The right is the fun, free-loving spirit it’s creative, joyful and amazed by colors, shapes, and sizes. It’s our awareness, our appreciation, our context of everything, our intuition, our witness, our observer, our ability to experience deep inner peace. Our Nirvana!
Alarm rings, it’s time to get up…
Ego – “ugh, time to get up already? (sigh), hmmm what am I gonna wear today, I don’t have a thing! Those darn birds are waking me up again, every morning…tweet, tweet, tweet, ya, ya enough already. That’s what I like about winter, no early birds tweetin’…Oh man! is it raining? Rats, now I’m gonna get all wet, it’s dreary out, I don’t know where my umbrella is…That light on the smoke detector is so annoying and these flimsy shades don’t keep the light out, I’m going to have to buy new ones…ya right in my spare time! Alright let’s go, gotta get to work, yuck!”
Nirvana – “oh I’m so comfy and warm, (yawn) hmmm what should I wear today? I’m feeling pink and black, yeah, pink and black, oh with maybe a pop of yellow! Listen to that bird chirping, what a pretty song, oh wait there’s more birds, awe their all singing, how lovely. Is it raining? I love the sound of the raindrops on the roof, it’s so soothing, like a lullaby. I love how high the ceilings are in here, there’s so much space and that light on the smoke detector looks like a star in the heavens above. It’s getting brighter in here, funny how the light peeks thru the shades and out from the sides greeting me to this beautiful new day. Alright let’s go, can’t wait to get to work, yay!”
The good news is, we can take control of our brain, we can be responsible for the path our brain takes, we can set the rules and the way that we interact not only within ourselves but with others too. The Ego cells are about the size of a peanut in our brain, certainly we can control something the size of a peanut. So when we feel that negativity start to creep in we can just tell those Ego cells, I’m not playing that game anymore, go away Ego I prefer Nirvana. We can choose to be positive over negative, we are in control! It’s true freedom!!
Nirvana wins the debate!!!
