I am restless and uneasy. I want to be peaceful, but my mind won't let me rest. It is as if I am looking for things to worry over, because I don't know what to do with quietness. I know peace is within arms reach. I only have to stretch out to receive it. But can I lift my arms from their rigidity?
Can I let new ideas come into my mind or must I be like a rat on a wheel, going over the same nonsense over and over?
I want peace to come rest on me, but all this internal tossing and turning is swatting it away. My emotions are unruly and I am not disciplined enough to make them mind. But I have to do it. Somehow I have to quiet my mind, pray more, worry less, make my hands do something productive and beautiful. I have to will my mind to stillness and will my hands to move. Somehow. And I hope writing this here will help me encourage myself to do just that. If I am my own worst enemy, I must become my own greatest ally.
Feeling worried and unhappy is something most of us struggle with. How do you cope with it? I would love to get some good advice. Please leave a comment and share what you do to make your creativity flow. Thanks for stopping by!
