So....last night I lost my center, my cool, my higher perspective. You see even though I am a spiritual person, I also live on this planet as a human doing human things like voting for a Presidential candidate.
I am the kind of person that is all about everyone has free will choice, and we are each unique and divine. I really am.
However last night I watched the Presidential debate. I wasn't going to, but my son had to watch it for a school project. I decided to keep him company and watch.
I don't usually get sucked in to all of that "stuff"; you know the jabs back and forth, the general mudslinging and all that. But, there was a moment when a comment was said, and I just lost my center. I did. I admit it. I was a bit shocked and kinda disgusted by the glib tone and comment itself.
I am only telling you this because it is important to be okay with feeling what you feel. As a spiritual person it is all too easy to think you need to be holier than thou all the time, and that is just false. I am human as you are (aren't you?) It is okay to feel ALL feelings. It is recognizing that you have gotten off track and then re-centering that I find so important.
It took me a while to climb out of the rabbit hole, but I am back and balanced and grounded yet again. It could have spiraled on and on fueled by anger and frustration, but thank God I caught myself.
The point of this here blog, is to remind you to be gentle with yourself. Beating yourself up over what you FEEL, never works and only gives THAT more energy. Feel it, honor it, thank it and move on. Until we connect again!!
