does this happen to you, too?
you’re focused so deeply into the micro cosm’s of life, everything else is run out of the frame of your perspective, leaving only that which is a breath away from your face in sight.
focusing solely on the ‘micro’ can be so stressful. in my experience, i can run circles around myself, looping that stressful string of thoughts around and around my ankles. when i try to take a step, the only place i go is down.
in my experience this isn’t a ‘once-and-done’ kind of practice. it takes consistent noticing, compassion when you catch yourself, and a pinch of determination to keep on with widening those beautiful lenses.
if you catch yourself in the micro, step back a minute and open your lenses (best you can in this moment) to the larger picture. try it. does your perspective shift in any way? even the most minute kind of way?
take a few deep breaths, welcome yourself into this place. take another deep breath, breathe in to this new-found space.
i-n-h-a-l-e . . . . . . e-x-h-a-l-e
we love you.
we need you here.
please, reach out to a pal if you’re suffocating in that micro.
i love your beautiful brain,
