Several years ago I had the opportunity to see the Broadway musical “Hamilton” as it passed through San Francisco. In the show, there is a scene where Alexander Hamilton is reflecting on his life and tragic past. “I wrote my way out,” he says. “I picked up a pen, I wrote my own deliverance!”
Wave of Mind
Have you ever played in the waves at the beach? Maybe you have fun memories of those waves. Perhaps you remember being scared as some waves crashed over you.
My life had become the opposite of what I needed. What I thought was self-care (watching Netflix, having a treat and taking a long nap) was really just a sign that the life I had built was making me stressed, exhausted and depressed.
