charcoalalley hello sweethearts,
today, my wish for us is that we can take a moment and slow down and fully indulge in something.
self-indulgence for me means enjoying an afternoon playing on the beach, relishing the colors of the ocean, lunch with a friend , a yoga class, painting my nails, or staying in bed extra late with a warm cup of tea and a good book.
life can feel so busy, but these self indulgent moments are what help ground us and keep us feeling happy.
take some time for yourself.
you deserve it.

charcoalalley watching your mind cling to thoughts. emotions. let go. you cannot control anything. everything comes and goes. nothing is permanent.
nothing lasts.
so, why even try to cling to a feeling or an emotion?
watch it rise like the tide and crash.
disappear into an ocean of emptiness.
true happiness is found here and now.

"Everything else - situations, difficulties, emotions,
feelings - are like the weather and come and go.
Do you associate yourself with the ever-changing weather or do you associate yourself with the endless expansive sky? We forget that nothing lasts forever and jump headlong into the stories that we tell ourselves based on the weather. Another way is to understand the impermanence of the weather and not get carried away by it, choosing instead to become aware and dwell in the vast sky." – Pema Chödrön

charcoalalley The search for contentment is, therefore, not merely a self-preserving and self-benefiting act, but also a generous gift to the world. You cease being an obstacle, not only to yourself but to anyone else. Only then are you free to serve and enjoy other people.

charcoalalley life feels liberating, when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realize how blessed you are. 2mon
