Why I Believe Eckhart Tolle's Guide To Transforming Your Life is Worthy of Our Thoughts



Hello LMD readers!  I hope this post finds you enjoying a relaxing Saturday with your family and friends or whatever brings you joy on your precious weekend.  As you know if you have been following me on instagram, we recently moved into a new home.  The boxes are everywhere, waiting for my attention.  Client projects are piling up as I'm behind with work from taking time away to pack the years of family memories in a moving truck and setting up a new homestead.  Also, during the move, my body chose the unfortunate opportunity to get sick.  Needless to say, life has been pretty hectic the past couple of weeks.  I sat myself down this morning and gave myself a huge talking to.  Do you ever do that?  I frequently have to remind myself that Rome was not built in a day and those boxes will wait til I feel better.  I'm sure part of my anxiety is due to my profession.  It's an occupational hazard to be the one who makes life so pleasant for others when your own life feels like a booby trap when entering your own home.  I have struggled with this greatly since the move.  On the days I was sick, I dragged myself down to the sofa so that I could sit with my family.  Out of the corner of my eye, the mountain of boxes was calling to me, so I retreated upstairs to the lonely quarters of my bedroom just to avoid the guilt.  
Today, I continue to fight this nasty crud, but am determined to tackle some of the boxes.  

By the way, we are in love with the new house.  Every morning, my husband and I begin our day in our "morning room" aka the living room.  We like this room because sunlight floods in and there is a gas fire which happens with the flip of a switch. It's toasty and warm.  We have decided this room will be furnished with comfy furniture, not "living room" furniture since this is where we start our day and have our morning devotionals.
