It Takes Work

I apologize for not posting last Friday, but I was too exhausted from the mental “housekeeping” I’ve been doing — nothing traumatic, just working through a mind-storm of emotions around a situation in which I was (finally) able to set some firm, clear boundaries. (Not a practice I’ve done very well in the past.)

I think the worst is over. But I’m still in the process of calming down.

So I’ll just leave you with this lovely little “mantra” from Sylvia Boorstein, which I’ve found to be very helpful, and which I was reminded of at the Sunday Sangha sitting yesterday morning. (Thanks, Sheryl!)

May I meet this moment fully,
May I meet it as a friend.
