My thought for this week is Stillness

I’ve experienced a lot of changes in the past few months – life altering changes.  My to-do lists have grown exponentially as I ponder new routes to take and reset my goals.  With so many areas of my life changing at once, I found myself wishing that I could hit a pause button for a few moments, and catch my breath.

Instead of pondering and planning, I decided to do just that – be still.

One of the gifts of this journey with fibroids is that I’ve learned to closely observe any physical changes in my body.  To find balance within, oftentimes the remedy for me is Stillness.   When I am still, the answers that I seek, often come effortlessly.

If you find that you want to “hit the pause button” this week, create some time for stillness.


“Through return to simple living Comes control of desires. In control of desires Stillness is attained. In stillness the world is restored.”
-Lao Tzu
