Thank you for joining me today It's time for our daily mindfulness exercise
Now close your eyes and let's start by taking a deep breath in Try to ignore the suffocating crush of all your mistakes as it closes in around you There you go, breathe in, and out, in and out
Now let's do a full body scan by moving your attention through your body, step-by-step Listen carefully as we check in on every part of your pitiful existence
Starting with your head take note of all the sensations you experience Feel those toxic thoughts washing over you You are not good enough You are meaningless Nobody cares about you
Perfect, now move your attention down your neck Through the ever present lump in your throat that makes sure you know you might break down into tears at any moment Down past your shoulders, constantly slumped forward in a painfully accurate simulacrum of your irrelevance Very good
Now let's move down your chest Do you feel the clenching grip of self-hatred crushing your lungs? Can you hear the dull thud of your heart pounding as a soundtrack to the emptiness of your soul? Fantastic
Move slowly down your spine, feel the rigidity caused by your crippling anxiety as it renders you motionless Down to your legs, those porcelain stems, those useless protrusions that will never lift you up and bound you away from your putrid reality Feel the sensation of every toxic thought as it stretches to every corner of your body, right down to the tips of your toes Wonderful
Now, slowly open your eyes Stand up and get on with your day I hope you enjoyed our exercise Thank you for your time and I'll see you again tomorrow for this frivolous endevour
A beach – a sea – a breeze – a night, My mind — my heart – feelings – and mood, Lit up by golden lamppost light, Alone, while I do hope and brood. My hope's from beauty, and from Darkness is all the brooding, here Making me both alive and numb, Between a joy, between some fear. But oh, the wave did hit my feet! A coldness embraces my skin, (My socks all wet), it did retreat, Back to the sea – where have I been? Both hope and brooding vibes did leave, To be mindful, I now achieve.
you are the mountain's wonder sculpted by the earth
above the others
- katrina ******
when i say "rise above the others," i think of the ones who constantly have something negative to say about you. they have to say your name because it tastes good. the taste of your name is so utterly divine and delicious that they can never get enough of it. it's like a drug to them.
your name soothes them but it slowly poisons them. their disdain of you seeps from their soul and drains their own energy because of how much hate they have for you.
forgive them anyways.
continue loving them for all that they are.
when you're frustrated about someone, or something, take a moment. breathe in. breath out. tell yourself that you are blessed. you shouldn't be stressed over things you cannot control.
