The onset of fall has been pulling me in multiple directions.
I’m thinking the same might be true for many of you.
And while I would like to report that I am clever enough to take my own advice and not become overwhelmed, it’s not always the case.
Thankfully, I have a glorious yoga therapist who, when asked how I might better manage my mental pinball machine said,
“A busy mind is not necessarily an anxious mind.”
Gosh, she’s good.
Because while I often give clients who are anxious about public speaking the same type of advice (“You can call it nerves… you can also call it energy,”) I forgot that I can apply that notion to myself.
So while my September is no less full of taking care of this, that, and the other thing, these days I am more careful about labeling my thought processes.
Because embracing my busy mind has increased my peace of mind.
I hope embracing yours does the same for you.
