I’ve been waiting for things to “get back to normal”. After my mom passed away, after my son enlisted in the Marines and left for boot camp, after my son called saying he was coming home from boot camp after 2 weeks, after my Mom’s birthday without her on Earth…
There’s always something else to cause feelings of uneasiness.
So I’m not going to look for Normal anymore. I’ll accept the things that cause disruptions in my daily life, a broken dryer heating element, traffic in the morning with the annoying LED billboard truck I seem to get stuck behind, winter or severe weather I have absolutely no control over.
Normal is an Illusion.
I wonder if my meditation and yoga practice has directed me towards this epiphany. I think it’s an epiphany I’ve had many times before, but forget about. It feels like I’ve been here before, knowing that life is a series of ups and downs and there is nothing consistent except inconsistency.
