Monkey Mind!

“What cloud can hide your brilliance?
Your rays will only seep through.
Your light shall always find a way,
And my darling, so will you.”

I don’t really have a lot to say today, considering how I spent most of the day waiting for the cloud cover to clear up just a little bit so that I could get one shot of the moon (the keyword being a ‘daytime shot’). I spent a long time just switching my glances between the sky map app on my phone and the actual sky, trying to keep a track of the moon’s position in the sky. And after everything, I only got less than a minute of clear sky and just one shot of the moon. I made it work, though!

Nah! I’m not going to give you a big paragraph about how patience pays off (it does, but this isn’t about that!). I’m just here to tell you that taking one day off of thinking about what I should write today worked wonders because I feel like this had been a long time coming. When you’ve been at something for a very, very long time, you’ll find your attention wavering and that is okay because the mind is a monkey. It craves the stimulation more that we try to keep it focused.

And that’s the thing we need to understand. Life is too short for anybody to be stuck doing just one thing all the time because it gets awfully tiring after a while unless you try your hand at a couple of other things to keep yourself going. I’m glad I didn’t spend the day thinking of what new content I should churn out (that lasted for about half an hour because I did, indeed, end up churning out new content for the moon journal page that I run with my best friend). 

Nevertheless, it’s a good idea to take a breather if you feel like things have been getting too much to handle. It doesn’t have to be a step back. Consider it more of a short nap! You’re going to wake up and go back to whatever you do on a daily basis anyway. It just feels nice knowing that you don’t have to keep thinking about your work 24×7 just because you’ve been doing it for so long.

Breathe!
Cheerio! Xx

  1. I was recently talking to someone about the importance of taking days off of work just because you feel like you’re not in a good mental headspace. It’s necessary to know when it’s time to breathe and recharge! Will write a piece about this soon😊
