Trust

I know I enjoy F bombs and moments of crude hilarity.


(Mickey Mouse, closet smoker)

But, I am a complex gal. I also am sensitive, sentimental, and reflective. My mind endlessly entertains and challenges me. It is my best friend and my worst enemy. Recently, I have been lucky enough to have moments of meditation. I highly recommend it. Meditation. It's not as kooky as it sounds.



What I have come to focus on right now is Trust.



If I begin to worry or think of WHAT IS NEXT and WHAT HAPPENS NEXT, I remind myself to trust. Trust that I have everything I need in the moment. Trust that it's all going to be alright. Trust that contentedness is enough. Trust that the universe is taking care of me as I move through my day and inhabit the spaces of the home I've created. Trust in kindness.

I have sent out an invitation for trust to come to me and be with me through all the mundane decisions a day can bring.

I hope the same for you.

I know what you mean...I think we are always worried about where we are and where we are going...sometimes we just have to trust things will play out like they are supposed to :)

I could use a little more trust in my life. I need to learn to trust myself. I am constantly second guessing everything and running around in a neurotic circle chasing my.... tail? Well, whatever. :)

Hmm, that is a tough one. I guess I focus on trusting myself and that I can deal with whatever life throws at me. Of course, with the help of Ativan, chocolate, and red wine from time to time.

I am impressed you can do this. I can NOT meditate. I am just too distracted by silence. Same issue I have with yoga.

I need to set myself time to meditate; I miss it.

Great post! I've discovered trust gets easier the older I get. The more often I've learned my worries were for nothing, the less I worry. (It's one of the best things about getting older)

Fabulous line of thought, thank you for sharing. I think will be dwelling on the concepts of trust and contentment for the rest of the day. :)

I have to try to find time to TRY to meditate. Between school and the rest of crap life throws at me it's difficult to even breathe. I love this message though.

Meditation has helped me a great deal in my life. "Sit down and shut up" --while it may sound crude -- is a wonderful daily reminder and practice. Faith and trust have never let me down. The hardest part is keeping them front and center amid life's endless distractions.

The more I trust in myself, the happier I am. It took me many years to realise that too, but if you can't trust yourself, who can you trust? xx

Trust is the bet way to go in order to face bad and good moments of life.

I am a believer in meditation. Trust is a profound one.

Here is what I am asking for: Joy.

For a planner like me, the hardest lesson was to not plan too far ahead--because planning leads to expectations and, more often than not, to disappointments. For the past 3.5 years I've been practicing "not planning" and it's been the best 3.5 years of my life.

And for Stephanie in Suburbia, the big click with meditation, for me, came when I read it wasn't about achieving a silent mind (silence drives me batty) but just sitting back and letting the thoughts float by without reacting to them.

Oh, and *love* the monkey meditation picture!

I have a hard time trusting in situations sometimes. But I do my best.

I think that all people have some thougts from time to time. All we worry about the buture and what can happen with us in the future. I have just remembered the words of one popular song - don't worry - be happy. Our happiness depends on us a lot!

I love this so much. Calms me.

Now, please come over and chant about trust to me in my fragile, frantic state;)
