Where Purpose Meets Passion

Daily Reflection – 292

Today I meditated and I felt pain in my entire body.

I wasn’t surprised that the pain was there. I was just surprised that it felt as bad as it did. For a while, I feel like I’ve been floating or being pushed through life, almost like a pinball in an arcade game. Currently, it feels like things are just…I don’t even know really how to describe them. They are and I am. And it’s not good. So many thoughts ran through my mind and I physically felt sick.

I felt used up. I felt unloved. I felt forgotten. I felt like people only recognize me when they need something (whether it’s a laugh or money or whatever).

I guess now is the time that I get real about these things. But how do you move forward?

Today I meditated and I felt pain in my entire body.

Daily Reflection – Day 287

I’ve decided to try this new thing – a daily reflection of sorts. Just an overview of my day in general or something that stuck out to me which I thought was worthy. It is my intention to keep it up until the end of the year and I hope to find something to be grateful for in every day.

Today, my reflection is on my family. It’s weird because I sometimes find myself having to play this role that makes everyone comfortable. Since I’ve been searching for my next full-time position, I haven’t really had the energy to speak with my parents or siblings. Not them, all me. I just don’t want to pretend to feel better than I really do. I shared this sentiment with my Brother the other day and he wrote something that eased my mind about my feelings — in a way, I was validated and felt what amounted to a small sense of belonging and being understood.

No (wo)man is an island and in this phase of my life, I don’t want to be.
