with good grace . . .

I start to write this entry.

I had noticed over the last 10 days or so a certain word popping up in many of the posts I was reading, in one way or another.

I was surprised and intrigued and commented on it’s occurrence to fellow bloggers.

It wasn’t until the middle of last night that I ‘got it’ and knew then, why for a few weeks I had been missing a beat….as it were. I had been feeling unsettled. Having builders in my space was part if it I knew, but I sensed there was something more. There was.

The magic word was connection . . . connectedness.

There is was. I realised in my state of heightened lucidity (as is often the case when I am awake through the night) that I had moved away from my centre and lost an important connection with ME.

Maintaining a connectedness with me keeps my anxieties and fears in check.

Without me at the centre, I lose emotional balance and I know that is not good for me.

Connectedness with me gives me the confidence to do, and BE and learn and grow.

 I know why I was wakeful in the night. I had something to learn from listening to me and connecting with others.

Thank you fellow bloggers for connecting with me, through your words, your pictures, your honesty and your good grace.

  10. There are so many ways today besides the personal: we now have excellent transportation and unbelieveably powerful comm. tech. Still…so many of our younger folk feel so alone when they need friends and support the most.

  13. It’s a great insight to come across, one we need more people to experience. Coming to realize that everything we do is interconnected, that every one of our actions has a series of repercussions, would leave us all in a better place.

  14. Connecting with ourselves is so vital and yet like you, I sometimes drift away, lured by the worlds others inhabit.

  15. And thank you! For me “connectedness with me” mean to be true to yourself, to stay connected with what you believe is right and what is meaningful.
