The Eternal Struggle: Status Quo vs Change

How do you practice “silencing the mind”?

This has always been my challenge and my desire. When I am successful, amazing growth, understanding, acceptance happen.

Getting off that mouse wheel of Life is the struggle.

Then again,  sometimes I’m so worried I won’t like the answer that I intentionally practice avoidance.

Like right now… I know job applications should be top of my list, but it’s scary putting myself “out there” and easy to laze in the “status quo.”

My boundaries have improved and I’ve been granted 2 days off instead of one. (It’s taken 2.5 years and a serious bout of burnout). Now, instead of moving toward the NEW I’m languishing in the FAMILIAR.

I see this quote in two parts: willingness to step outside my comfort zone AND willingness to be quiet with myself to hear the answer to the question, “What is my next step?”
