Love Yourself

“You’re always with yourself, so you might as well enjoy the company”

Diane Von Furstenberg

As I deal with car repairs this morning, I find this quite very reassuring. As long as I control my emotions, and keep myself centered, I’ll be fine. There’s no reason to lose my temper, when I think rationally that is, over things I can’t control.

Every time I open my eyes here in the waiting room, no matter how long or short I’ve been meditating, I get the strangest loos from those around me. I wonder if my aura actually shows the calm I’m working to maintain. I know they are sensing my deep breathing, in through the nose, out through the mouth.

I hope that this ordeal will end soon. Im certainly ready to get out of here and go home to relax even more.

My meditation was very intense this morning because I took my car in for service. Nothing can start the stress meter like a visit to the mechanic. I can’t help but feel there is a rip-off taking place, but I’m not a mechanic myself, so I can’t be 100% certain.

I refuse to let these things ruin my day. I will endure, survive, and prosper in the long term. The key to my own mental health and well-being is to be the rock in the stream and let the trouble flow around and over me without moving me.
