The annular eclipse occurred tonight, and I looked up at it (carefully, and with my sunglasses on) in wonder.
Okay...I couldn't see much, but that's not the point.
These suckers don't happen often, ya know, and I find it telling that it occurred on the day that I, myself, had a shift.
Today was the day that I gave myself a new mantra:
"It is time to take it easy and trust in the process of life. (For god's sake,) stop trying so hard...just be."
And so it is that I'm setting out this week with a sense of stopping...a sense of just....ahhhh.
How odd to have a goal of doing nothing....off requiring myself to stop considering. Instead my goal is to not worry about goals, or solutions, or end products. Just be here, be me, and let go of the rest.
It feels really good.
