I want to say I got up early after a restful night’s sleep.
I want to but it wouldn’t be true. My sleep was restless. Eventually, I moved to the living room and slept on the couch. Beaumont was happy. He got the rest of the bed.
I want to say my mind is at ease after a quiet meditation.
I want to but it wouldn’t be true. My meditation was anything but quiet. Seriously? How can so many thoughts crowd into such a small dark place?
And I smile.
As soon as I write about dark spaces, an unquiet minds, my higher self awakens.
It’s the way it is.
Writing has always been meditative for me. Healing.
On the page, I see my truth shimmering in all its many facets. I see the dark places lying in wait to capture the light and I see the light burning fiercely, edging out the dark.
On the page, I cannot hide from myself. I cannot hide in the dark.
On the page, I must turn up.
Just as I must turn up this morning and be present to my day.
A breakfast meeting in half an hour. A briefing note to finish off and other things to tidy up.
I had a restless night last night.
Doesn’t mean my day isn’t filled with possibility.
Doesn’t mean I’m not finding my lightness of being rising with the sun’s golden rays.
It just means I’m a little bit more tired than usual.
