I’m a quick glance before you throw yourself completely into the leap kind of girl. This means that sometimes the leap provides a bit more than I’ve bargained for…such as more shallow than deep waters, or deep yet slimy water to land in.
Some of you may be wondering when I will learn to properly look before leaping and to perhaps not fully throw it all in with the leap. Some of you might suggest a safety line or other such means. These are all sound, good and, well, safe things. That’s probably why I don’t do them! 😉
After my last leaping adventure, which resulted in a less than graceful landing in a slightly muddy patch, Beloved suggested taking some time to breathe and just listen to things. To his way of thinking all this leaping and some times odd landings is taking a toll on me, and thus him as well.
He suggested just being still and breathing for in those still moments of deep brats often time we hear the most clearly. We are able to listen completely to the message and the answer we are provided is the right one for us. But I’ve never been good at still, or deep breathing. I can’t meditate worth a darn and seem to have issues when it comes to controlling myself around certain theories or ideas. I am, my dear readers, a girl who runs headlong into the wind while its gusting to the point of being an event.
So here I am, covered in mud, not a hint of gracefulness around my being and Beloved announces he has found the thing to help me find those quiet moments. At the first protest of yet another set of meditation books or classes, he roars for me to let him finish. He never roars, well almost never at any rate. He shows me an image of a little electronic device. This makes me smile because both he and I have a soft spot for electronic devices…he is much worse with this soft spot than I am.😊
The device is a kind and body tracker. It connects to one’s cellphone and sense when you are in need of a deep broth. In other words it’s basically an electronic coach. It also measures your steps and calories burned, which are irrelevant to me.
But as you may know I have a fear of all this tracking in the mundane existence of my life. Who needs confirmation as to how boring one’s life really is after all? 😐
Still I have agreed that I shall try this little gizmo, just to see if it can help me so I have a few more graceful and soft landing. Beloved has one purchased one for himself too, just because it’s a new electronic gadget and why not? Besides he is amused that he will have something telling him when to trying we play breathing.
part of me thinks that this leap may in fact have us both deep mud, or quick sand or stinky puddle of water. But we shall see how it all works out!
