Inaction vs Action

The weekend was a mixed bag. Although we had fun on Friday evening DJ-ing and I had a nice time the next day spinning tunes at London Rollergirls on the Saturday, there was somewhat of a shadow cast due to family things. There’s no point in moaning about it on this blog – I’m trying to keep my blog nice and light and friendly these days. However, it’s very annoying when the people you love the most, cause you the most turmoil. I thought about this for days on end. I’d be having fun then I’d have a wee thought that would make me a little sad then I’d be fine again and doing my thing at the gym and then something else would pop into my head and I’d be a little down again.

However, last night I watched Wonders of the Universe with Professor Brian Cox and all these silly little arguments just seem pretty insignificant. We’re basically specs floating around on a big rock in space, hurtling towards the future which inevitably entails the end of all life. The end of life won’t happen for a few trillion years or so of course but our own lives in the present are fleeting and very short.

We live here.

So I’ve started the week with the mantra that nothing is worth getting too upset about at all. Even if it is about family or friends. I guess things happen, there’s nothing we can do to control others’ actions or words but we just have to be the best we can be as individuals and hope that things will turn out alright in the end. I used to get really worked up about things but now I can’t be bothered with fighting and getting angry.

I’m not even bothered so much anymore if people dislike me, are angry with me for whatever reason or don’t like my “vibes”. You can’t win ’em all. It’ll always upset me a little if I feel there’s some bad thoughts floating around out there in the social ether but there’s ultimately nothing that can be done about that. Things like that used to make me sad and paranoid and I’d want to fix it immediately or at least try to do something about it but I’m taking the stance that inaction is action. Standing still, being quiet and focussing inwards are probably much more healthy.

I quite liked this little quote about inaction vs action…

We waste a lot of time running after people we could have caught by just standing still.  ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic’s Notebook, 1960

So have a good week everyone – don’t get worried about the little stuff and concentrate on the bigger things instead!

Love and peace – Wee C x

  1. Loved your blog. Love the quote, I’ll use it and link you. I love the line: “Finally free to be still” that comes from a Corina Repp song.

    Have a great week~
