Peaceful Hurricanes and Chaotic Stillness

Some days things “just” happen. Good and bad, big and small, important and not so much.. Some days one minute we laugh and cannot contain our joy in our physical bodies and another we feel below the sea level. On such days peacefulness is threatened by the most hazardous chaos and emotional hurricanes elevate to never before seen (and probably felt) levels. I am sure you have gone through this a significant number of times.

I would like to share my observations what works when hurricanes take over and chaotic stillness becomes annoying. I will share only 3 very simple possible steps you can take (there are so many more of them!) to change the situation. Start with these 3 steps as, I believe, they are the foundation of all the other ones that are in between:

1. Calm down. It might sound a little bit way too simple but stop doing whatever you are doing, put aside everything, walk away from your computer and find a peaceful place where you can come back to your body and your peaceful mind. One of the possible things to do is to make yourself a cup of tea and while drinking it concentrate and think only about the tea, the smell, the flavor, observe the color and texture of it. Let it be all about the cup of tea. Let all the thoughts and worries slide away. Find something what you enjoy and what takes 2-5 minutes out of your busy day. Enjoy the moment and observe every millisecond  of your peaceful return to pure happiness filled Earth. Try this!

2. Remember and decide what is important to you, deep in your heart, not in your brain. There are days when too many things happen at the same time and we lose a grip of what is important to us and what our priorities are. Don’t take the path that puts everybody’s responsibilities and faults on you. More

Happy Holidays ~

Another year is on the verge of changes, new beginnings, happy endings, new romances for single and more mutual understanding for coupled ones.

Christmas is just around the corner and although this has been not so great year on Wall Street and Santa is on a budget, it will still be merry and happy Christmas for all – small and big. Be nice to each other, listen to each other, don’t take anything for granted and enjoy the happy spirits of this festive holiday season ~

Much Love,

Purple and Other Nuances

I have been a bad bad “mama” for my Geographic Delight blog. Not on purpose. There were so many things on my plate that I ran out of energy to take care of my Geographic Delight baby..

My main concentration and writing for personal purposes happens on my personal website www.ievute.com. Visit me there and say “hi.” I also have been spending more time biking and making things for friends, Christmas and myself. One of my projects, how to make recycled envelopes from paper grocery bags, can be found here. I also opened Etsy shop and was/am trying to organize things as much as possible.

Oh, and how could I forget, from the last time I checked in here, I changed my hair color twice. I am brunette now. I was purple/pink in between..

Have You Ever Walked a Labyrinth?

Labyrinth is such a literate and magical symbol. One moment it can mean a puzzle and another carry an important meaning about one’s journeys – inward and outward.. I always admired walking-labyrinths from afar, mostly, because I grew up in a country where they were existent only in a “puzzle” form. Only recently while working with one of my clients I realized that I live very close to one. Now I only have to pick a day, time and enjoy the journey..

I am also curious if anybody have walked any labyrinths and what experiences did you have?
