Friend Lillian taught me the expression TMI - I sat with a question mark in my head when I saw the letters - yet when I went still I saw that it stood for TOO MUCH INFORMATION. Yep I get it. It's NOT a gift to have too much information and too many gifts/skills. It's challenging to want to know everything and do everything. It's a challenge friends for me to BE STILL - maybe except when I pick up my camera!?!? Maybe that is where I need to BE more rather than always struggling to figure out who I am and where I fit and what would make me happy. Friend Bob talks about simply Letting Go - letting go of what? The need to know...the need to know what I will do with the pictures I take - the need to know what I will do with the quilting projects I do?
I have simple needs...wanting to BE...and be still and at peace. Then I rediscover the 'junque' that is available to me - sugar, carbs, and related stuff. Then I go there for a few days...and then again, I say, "OK it's time to LET IT GO!" Now it's that time again...maybe this will be the last time? Maybe. Life in retirement can be BE STILL moments IF we allow them to shine and open our hearts and minds to them. It's so simple...and not... This is where I really am deep inside - this water lily is the personification of Being Still and Peace...enough said...Let it BE!!
