Normal: an average or a standard. But this can be viewed differently person to person. What is normal anymore? Well it certainly isn’t the current global situation, is it?
Like many over en past month, plus, I have had days or partial days feeling slump-ish, due to the lack of ‘normal.’ And as Dr. Seuss says, ‘um-slumping yourself isn’t easily done.’ It is frustrating but also humbling as I feel like I have put lots of focus to Law of Attraction thinking. If you have been reading along, you know I overthink everything, so maybe that takes me backwards a step or two. Obviously you can’t try too hard or force it.
A big learning with the Law of Attraction, is don’t give attention to that which you don’t want more of. The problem with this virus, is I tend to watch the news now, where I never did before. For something that you have no control over at all, watching the news makes you at least feel like you know the latest of what is happening – giving a false sense of ‘control.’
All of my reading and self learning is that any struggle is between me and myself. Talking and venting at times are good, you feel real connections with people. This is a quote that has, a few times, given me reason to pause and reflect:
‘It takes a strong individual to sit with themselves, calm their storms, and heal all of their issues without trying to bring someone else into that chaos.’ You can take this a couple of ways, I do think there is a time and a place for this. Humans are meant to talk, connect and interact and those things are healthy. I also have had times that I didn’t want to bring more negativity to life and share that negativity with loved ones.
Sometimes it is very clear to me when I can turn inward and ‘calm my storms’, other times my natural tendency is to talk and unload some emotion. Situations are all different for what is the best approach but the quote has me reflecting first. Which I do believe is a step in the right direction. My soul knows what to do when I reflect.
So no matter how abnormal these times are and how slump-ish we may feel, we are all learning the things we truly appreciate that make things feel normal. We all have internal struggles when we are working out the un-slumping. So when you have these moments too, just remember you aren’t the only one, we are in this together after all.
