Yesterday, I found myself overwhelmed by life.
Frustrated, I was unable to control my emotions with others, I was late to all of my appointments for the day, I had forgotten to take care of my most basic needs and realized that I had even forgotten to put gas in my car.
As I was rushing through the city streets, changing my path rapidly in hopes of being able to find the closest gas station before I ran out of gas completely, I had a moment of clarity.
Over the course of the last few months I had been pulled in many different directions.
I had ran myself ragged, lost my way, and once again become tired and worn from the chaos.
I knew then, that today, would be a day, when I would need to be alone and take the time to calm my mind and choose my true direction.
What resonates in my heart?
What brings me a sense of accomplishment or pride in what I do?
What do I consider my calling?
Sometimes, we allow ourselves to be distracted by so many things that we forget what brings us peace.
I am reminded today that I can stop along my spiritual path, rest on my journey, take a moment to look at my life, and then… with a clear and calm mind… move forward towards my true North.
“Dear God, help me to release chaos. Help me to let go of distractions and search for my true calling.”
