After weeks and weeks of social networking I needed a break. It seems like the act to be social has the opposite effect on me... the more networking I do the less authentic I feel. Left feeling insignificant and my sense of direction gets blurred.
The only combination I feel comfortable with is to balance a bit of both.
Share with others and make room for me. The libra in me needs that balance, the introvert in me needs that peace.
So I go back into my cave to help me focus on the now. Remind myself that even though I am creeping on numero 41 soon I have all the time I need and there is no rush... my pieces always took time to cultivate. I have enough. I am enough. Basta
But my favorite one is the mama sombrero.
In my cave, the dwellers are content. The king has grown in confidence and has found a new sense of self. Among teaching himself the ukelele, he is learning many things in his new school he has wanted to learn in a long time. He is exploring with stop-motion film, photography, creating video games, becoming aware of social issues, how to deal with stress and work as a team. He is currently reading this for school. He recently told me " I feel like I am in charge of what I am learning". This from the kid who once told me he does not know how to be happy.
Follow the directions ... rinse and repeat Basta!
