Sink Into Life

Inspiration, Mantra

I have this new mental trick that I like to call Sink Into Life.

Having a mantra is important to me and my stability. There is no particular process I use in picking my mantra other than stating what I am feeling and what I want to accomplish.

This week my mantra is to Sink Into Life.

It came about because the weather is dreary and rainy and I am super exhausted. It’s like I can’t rest enough or catch up on good sleep. I have a marriage, house, full-time job, and 2 kids to raise so regardless of how I feel, I must continue.

And also, the sun rises no matter what, so I thought:

Why not just sink into this day, regardless?

By sink in, I mean:

  • Being OK with being tired
  • Embracing the rain
  • Expressing that I am tired, and trying my best without apology
  • No guilt about my feelings

While this sounds simple, it is actually pretty difficult for me. Usually, I will fight and fight and push and push and get super frustrated at my circumstance. Then, that will cause me to be miserable. When miserable, my anxiety spikes because I want soooo bad for energy to come my way. Then, I’m mad because it’s not there.

Next thing I know, I’m even more tired and the day is ruined.

So, instead of fighting, I am simply sinking into the day. I dressed comfy. I didn’t spend a lot of time on my hair because it’s raining outside. I’m not going to over-do it at work – I am just going to do what needs to be done and that’s all. I’m watching the leaves turn outside while drinking coffee and writing here about my experience. In a few moments, I am going to feed my Spirit and read my Bible. I’m OK with not feeling inspired today. I’m totally cool with just enjoying the day and not fighting it. I’m OK will being tired because there is not much else I can do about it.

So, I’m sinking into it. No apologies for what is.

    1. Sometimes it’s hard to sink in – like today, I’m under the weather with sniffles…but I told myself again, to sink and just be. Now, I’m just going about my day with a little bit more grace and forgiveness than usual 🙂

      1. I believe your mantra is what I need to face the current challenges of my life specially today where my mind’s resistance is like a buzzing electric wire disintegrating any peace and serenity I could have. So I am just going to sink into it all and hopefully I too will be blessed with more grace and self forgiveness. You keep shining that amazing light on us please ! 🙏🌺❤️🌸😊
