One of my favorite cartoon characters is Oogway the turtle from Kung Fu Panda.
That guy has it all figured out mentally and he can stand on a stick on his head! Now that is impressive!
He goes with the flow, everything makes sense and he has a peaceful calmness about him. Most of all he is happy all the time.
A favorite scene from that movie is when Shifu is meditating and muttering the words "inner peace, inner peace." And then he yells at the duck for flapping his wings. Haha! (Funny because the duck is flying in from thousands of miles away).
The last few months, I have felt out of balance, completely drained and not being able to give everything my all. My best all that is. My well is dry and I feel kind of like I am limping along. So not who I am, and so not at peace with myself.
I am excited that I will be taking a break and focusing on just me and my husband and my daughter. Inner peace is my goal and maybe when it is all done, I will be able to stand on my head while balancing on a stick! Hey, never say never!
