Psyched-out?

Disturbed, Agitated, Confused are some of the emotions all of the mankind goes through each day.

Maybe because we have expectations, a particular belief over the result that we have worked hard upon. Thus, the need to get top notch result that will blow off the tops of the 'audience' who is watching us with keen eyes.

This audience could either be our family, our friends or even neighbors who always keep a sly eye on us.


Needless to say when we do not get what we expect...leads to high emotions.

When I'm upset, I would love to run away to the mountains!
The forest is the place where the population of mankind is minimum. No one to judge me. No one to expect anything from me.
But, honestly since I get disturbed every day is it practical for me to 'run away to the mountains'
Honestly, I would have to drive about four hours to even get to one!!
Not possible!!



I usually think of alternate solutions in the order of appearance such as mindfulness, reasoning, laughter!

Upon the first frown, my eyebrows knit together over my brown-black eyes as I concentrate hard on the problem that made me disconcerted in the first place. I try to be mindful of the problem while trying to reason out, "Why" "Is it worth being upset"?

Most of the times, it's a 'Nah!'

That is followed by a peal of laughter!

Easy-Peasy! Problem solved without heading to the mountains for the retreat!!

On a side note...what is going in and around the capital of our country. Yes, I am psyched-out, but I would choose not to get upset over that since this is still a democratic country and I have faith in the house of representatives.

Let's choose to first fight the problems within us, our household, our community. The country shall follow suit.

Mantra for today: And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
