We all know that life can be utterly out of control, and us humans love to think we can change the unchangeable and move the immoveable, but alas we cannot. This morning Deepak Chopra, via a quote app, reminded me of how holding on to things we cannot change is a suffocating force. He said, “Holding on to anything is like holding on to your breath. You will suffocate. The only way to get anything in the physical universe is by letting go of it. Let go and it will be yours forever.” Isn’t he just amazing. This reminds me to take perspective on the little immovable objects in my path, to take a deep breath as I look at my view, and to love those around me with flexibility.
Happy New Year C&C readers! December was an eventful month for your dear Cupcakes. I lost friends to eternal rest, completed steps toward a future desired, and found a special someone to breath my breaths with. All in all, an emotional roller coaster. Without going into detail, I’ve been pretty physically, mentally, and spiritually overwhelmed. To remain sane I had to keep one word in mind “balance.” I found balance in mentally stimulating conversation, laughter, meditation, and knowledge. Find what helps give you balance in this new year hone in on it and practice it as often as possible.
