When I'm overwhelmed, I need to eject my consciousness. How I think, particularly under pressure, matters. Too often, feelings create an unnecessary distraction from developing a feel for my work.When I'm...
behind on rebuilding my blog
behind on writing articles to get published
overwhelmed by my website and its needs

and I want to do them all at the same time, of course, I need to hone in on my core strengths:
Determination. Learn what to let go of--and it's likely my anxiety. The more concrete it feels, the less real it is.
Familiarization. Practice the opening and letting go of my mind all the time so that I integrate the idea that all things pass, all things come to a natural end.
Plant seeds. Know that I have the innate ability to let go of my anxiety and feel compassion for myself and others.
Tend weeds. Realize that the identity I form with self-reproach and anxiety limits my perspective, and to not succumb to the desire of keeping it from falling apart. Trying to "keep it all together" wasn't working.
Aspiration. When things fall apart, when situations find their natural ending, when on the cusp of a new chapter--position myself to be with those who can teach me the most so that I can do my best service.
This is the only way I can process feelings in my work so that I can get back to developing a feel for it./This post-series is about trying to anchor my experience by exploring within and reminding myself about what it means to practice "good humaning." It's about moving forward imperfectly. To follow this thread in my posts, look for these tags: #NotesFromMyYogaJournal
