Day 22 of My 30 Days of Creativity Challenge.
I used to believe that I lived this ordinary life. Working, raising my children, doing the parent thing while others around me appeared to be living lives that were “exciting.”
Here’s the truth … I loved and still love my life. Even when I was single MANY moons ago, I was never a partier, or one that did crazy shit. I liked my mundane life and never really tried to change it. But for some reason, I thought I had to go out and do the things that the others were doing. The only thing that did was depress me. I thought I was anti-social because I never wanted to go out. I learned later that I am sensitive to the energies of others and what I was doing was a defensive tactic as I was protecting my energy. I work in an environment that is full of swirling, crazy energy and if I’m not careful, that energy will “stick” to me. So before work, I place a protective shield around myself, and after work, I make sure to remove any residual energy that tries to follow me home.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with doing your thing. If you want to stay home with your people, stay home. There’s nothing this says you must do what others are doing. Protect yourself. Protect your energy. This is the meaning I found in the mundane and I love my mundane life.
