Recently, I was introduced to a website of a woman by the name of Sandy Grayson, a close confidant of my chance-encounter-once-in-this-world friend Megan Castran. When I read Sandy's words they resonated in me hard---there IS a simple steadiness to my life right now. While there is alot of change (change that in NYC requires such a high degree of energy with all the over stimulation & countless choices) going on in our little Markle world(jobs, apt hunting, etc)...I would actually say that I am calm. And more content with the 24-7-ness that makes me who I am right here right now in 2012.
So I'm checking out to really check IN with things. I'm finding happiness in what being present provides to my person---gosh, that's so grown up of me.
"It is very good for the soul, now and then, to be quiet and go within. And even though my life might look very similar on the outside, my insides tell me something different. There is a calm, steadiness to my life. Any bit of frantic energy that was present has dissipated. Part “look at me!” and part trying to capture every beautiful moment but not really being in the moment – it’s gone, for now. Will it return when my Social Media Sabbatical is over? I don’t know. But I do know that learning to really BE in the present moment, takes practice. So I’m using this sabbatical as my practice. One day at a time. One precious moment at a time. " - SG
