"Calm your mind"
“Happiness is the art of never holding in your mind the memory of any unpleasant thing that has passed…” Buddha
My postcard represents the four main elements that when conquered, allowed me to become whole again. A new me, better equipped to deal with everyday stresses.
Meditation helped me calm my mind and, through practice, ultimately my life. Yoga gave me added strength and was beneficial to my wellbeing.
Ying yang reminds me about balance; I even had the sign tattooed on my left ankle so that I can contemplate this while meditating! The sky is amazing and calming, there is so much to learn just by looking upwards. Hours can pass watching the sky without me even noticing.
My hope is that the message in my postcard can be understood and help someone on the road to recovery. We are all unique and we all have different ways of healing.
We must help ourselves (with support), and be mindful and selective about our thoughts, and we need to make time for ourselves to relax and be calm to enable us to really heal.
