I feel both. I feel both of them. You know, there’s always a crapload of stuff to complain about to feel negative about, AND SIMULTANEOUSLY there’s a bunch of stuff to feel happy and positive about. Instead of choosing one or the other to feel, I choose to feel both. I choose to acknowledge the negative AND the positive. I don’t try to smother the negative with my conjured positive feelings, and I don’t roll my body around in the swamp of negativity ignoring what I am truly happy about. I powerfully acknowledge and allow myself to experience both in my life. Yeah, it’s cold, and my hands were freezing as I walked to class. I hate that SO MUCH. That sucks. AND I have a class to go to that I really really like. I love learning about the art and music in our world’s civilizations. I really do enjoy it. I wanted to sleep more, and my head hurts. Sucky poo. AND I had somewhere warm to sleep last night, and I had some awesome dreams. 

I don’t not advocate only choosing the positive, or only choosing the negative. I choose to powerfully experience both the positive and the negative in my life. I allow time for both feelings to spend their time in my soul, for by giving equality to both, I do not deceive myself. If I dwell on only one of them, I am not being honest with myself. I feel both.

It’s Easy To Be Busy

I wrote a poem! Here you go.
It’s easy to be busy.
It’s hard to slow down.
It’s easy to ignore 
what’s most important for me now.
I could do what I don’t wanna do:
things that nag at me inside - but
it’s easy to be busy,
for in busyness, I hide.
It’s easy to be busy
and fill my life with fluff.
It’s easy! My schedule’s full 
of tasks and goals and stuff.
And there’s no end to TV shows 
and Movies I can choose.
And it’s easy, oh, so easy
to distract myself with news.
It’s easy to be busy.
I cannot seem to stop.
I run from here to there 
putting out fires til I drop.
And lying on my back I muse…
I HATE it when I fall.
It seems, sometimes, the easiness of busyness 
is not so easy after all.
"I can do that." 
"I’ll make that happen."
My time suitcase bursts it’s clasps.
I fill my calendar
with everyone who ever asks.
Yes, it’s easy to be busy,
and it’s hard to take it slow.
What’s NOT so easy is learning 
to simply say, “No.”

I saw these rich girls in front of Smith’s, BEGGING FOR MONEY. Wealthy Utah girls thought the best idea to raise money for their LaCrosse team was to beg on the street. No bake sale. No car wash. No nothing. #AmICrazy (at City of Draper)

Self-Mastery - Morning Thoughts

Self-Mastery. 

I want it so bad. It seems like the the more you try to get it, the more you don’t have it. It seems like it’s such a delicate flower, that the more you squeeze tight to be sure you have it and will never let it go, the more you crush it and it withers away.

I want to get up early and exercise. I know that it’s good for me. And I honestly want it. I look forward to it. But I don’t do it.

Why is doing the things that are worthwhile so difficult?
