You are here! Good you.
And with that, no video today - still mulling and hopeful someday soon I will get this!
But until then, it is you and me right here.
Taking it 24 hours at a time and because of that:
STOP - BREATHE - LET YESTERDAY GO - AND COME BACK TO NEUTRAL.
Simple, powerful, easier said than done, but very doable!
Getting your self back to neutral can be hard when you are holding on to a lot.
So how about 3 deep breaths and then try again?
It is the wildness i seek. I can say i've found freedom, but the wild? of that I still seek of thee....
I haven't thought about that word for a while, what does it mean to you?
To me it feels unrestrained - something very difficult to do unless you are away from human eyes.
Nature doesn't mind. Mostly it is all it knows. It respects the boundaries - yours and mine.
Not humans with all the rules.
So in this time with you today I'll throw that back at you to think about a bit.
Do you have any wildness left in you? Or too much!
There is probably no less wild place in all the world than the middle of the week!
But in a day by day world, it is just another day.
Which means another moment to choose again.
I choose more wild.
What do you choose?
I look forward to seeing what you choose.
see you my friend in 24,
The earth moved and yes, there is a new video:
It is a new day and we are here. Good Us!!!
It is a busy day today for me, how about you? I am still amazed by how much busyness still exists even though it is simplicity I seek.
I have a couple things to share with you today. The video is above, but there is also a podcast just below.
Today I talked about making decisions and how much impact every decision has. The smallest choice can have life altering consequences.
I hope you get something out of it here:
As always in our time here I am reminded that this is my moment and I hope yours to stop and take a breath, let yesterday go and decide for today.
But I want to add more elements to this.
I am becoming ever more convinced as I shared in the podcast, it is the culmination of the daily and tiny decisions that pave the road to any greatness we will achieve.
The same is true for survival. Listening to what is happening down in Venezuela I am reminded again it is who we are more than what we buy that will make or break us.
Prepared isn't just about stuff.
Kindness and being gentle isn't enough.
I send my prayers to them as I send them to you for wherever you are - strong and on the run or just working on the standing part.
But as always, my faith in your real strength - the deep down kind I know you have - is unwavering.
Of this I can be certain.
The wind? Not so much, sigh - it is beginning as I am typing....
So with that I will let you go.
Strong and faithful - that is what we are.
Life and freedom - that is what I seek. You?
From my heart to yours,
see you in 24 - Jill
We are here and with that, the hard part is done! I have so much I want to tell you from the last few days, but it is still 'percolating' a bit, so it will have to wait.
But first, let's get our basics out of the way - stop, take a breath, and now let's focus.
The rest of the day is all you.
What will you do with your day?
My list is really long, as usual. I got some of those pesky kind of tasks done this weekend. Mornings were glorious. Afternoons were more wind.
Every freakin' day it is windy.
But what it has really made clear is how many things over the course of every day that try and take me down.
Often they do. I get raging at them doesn't help, but I also find my self exhausted by the end of the day from dealing with them.
And worse, getting angry at my self for letting them get to me.
Does any of that sound familiar for you? Spending so much time alone I some times lose a frame of reference for what others are going through - I mean seeing it and not just the highlight version!
Here's a question, how do you define freedom?
I'm asking you because I asked my self that question too. It's part of what I'll be talking about in the videos and podcast tomorrow.
Yes, tomorrow I am committing to get back to video - I miss it, do you?
Either way, it keeps me more focused and that is the goal.
So with that I think I'll sign off for the day. It is all you now. Who will you be? How will you spend it?
And as always, sometimes it is enough to just not do anything. Much easier to not do than the kind of thing you can't undo.... which includes a dozen donuts in one sitting:)
No, I didn't ever do it, but I did think about it!
So until tomorrow and from my heart to yours
see you in 24
Today as you know is my favorite day. I love Sundays because they belong ALL to me and no one is really working, so there's nothing to feel guilty about.
So far, so good, and you? We made it thru another 24 hours, good us.
I know, on the one hand who cares? On the other - I do and I hope you do too.
As I write to you the pinto beans are boiling in the crock pot. I don't know if I shared that where I sit is smack dab in what used to be pinto bean central in World War II. Also in the early 1920's before the soil gave out to drought.
That is why it is all about the cows right now.
This is a good moment to take a moment to stop.
It seems like a good time to just take our daily break and stop, breathe, and then focus.
So I am right here with you, deep breathe we go.
And now to answer the constant question, who will you be today?
I feel like it is so easy to talk talk talk about this idea - to live a life of value and purpose.
But after every pundit there is pronounces the need to return to what is real and true - the reality of the truth in our world rears its head - but what can I sell you first?
The bottom line.
Yet, what is life without life? I fear we are getting closer to answering that question than I'd like, you?
I'm not going to keep you today. There is still much to do here and next is a bath for the dog - it's been since last fall. He is beyond dirty....
and it will last all of a day.
But tonight, he will be clean!!!
Small moments of immense joy these are!
Okay, it is another day. I will see you again tomorrow.
so from my heart to yours
see you in 24
I didn't post anything yesterday. I have mixed feelings.
Mostly, I just didn't 'feel' like it. Which as I say over and over, is the trap.
But sometimes, 'failing' is valuable. And while not posting isn't failure at the largest levels - we need a step back to see where we actually are.
That is what it 'feels' like is happening. A regrouping and restructuring. I don't know exactly where it will all land, but I trust it.
Here is the podcast and movie trailer I talked about:
If you get the chance, I really encourage you to watch the movie or at least some of the You Tube stuff.
I also found that Dean Potter, featured in the movie did die last year from a base jump. A lot of people die when they to the base jumping.
That is it for this moment! See you in 24, Jill
Something went wrong!
This site is run by a human, not an APP. It's hard showing up every day, but that is what it takes. I am so glad you are here! Jill
