Aware, 2nd word


Aware collage-1/2011

Aware

At times I tend to tune out.  Do you ever do that?  

In some ways it has helped, like an escape from PAIN seems good!  Right?

At times I ignore the "Dread Pirate" Pain, when I should take action (heating pad, get up, sit down)  You get the picture...

I'm a bit of a loner, so when feeling tired, like a turtle in a shell, I hunker down in my own little home.  I don't want to go out or answer the phone or even read my email.  Sometimes making supper seems like an insurmountable goal, so going out is not an option.

I see these traits in both positive and negative lights.  Alone time is crucial for my writing and artistic exploration.  Lots of times, the reason I can be optimistic and smiling, is because I put the "zone out" in charge of PAIN contol and FATIGUE.  And I get up out of bed and begin another day! 

The awareness I am moving toward is a coming out of my BIG shell, my 
comfort/safety zone and reconnecting with friends and family.  Good stuff and fun experiences with old and NEW friends.  Get where I'm going with this?

Managing a balance between beneficial "zone out" and awareness is where I'm heading.  Through some yoga meditation exercises, I have experienced NO PAIN and with it comes the great gift of energy.  With the awareness that it's possible comes the desire to have it all the time  

I feel like I'm on the verge of an awakening and every step, stumble and fall has brought me here. 

Thankfully aware,
Donna
