I had so many things on my to-do list today. And now instead, I am doing nothing. I was rushing to get everything done this morning that I literally jumped-ran down the stairs and sprained my ankle. Landed on my butt at the bottom of the stars and everything! Luckily it doesn't seem like a bad sprain and I was able to hobble around to finish the most important errand as well as make it to the acupuncture clinic. But here comes my lesson on Ahimsa...
I was so angry this morning because I had all these errands to run before 2pm. Things were taking longer than I expected, I had to make an extra trip to fix something that was over looked and ultimately I was annoyed, frustrating and running back and forth all over the city. Ok running and biking. When I was biking I was being so super careful, when I was flying down the stairs, not so much. So in the rush, I forgot to be kind and not violent towards my ankle. Now I'm laying down with it elevated and wrapped in smelly Chinese liniments. That's what I get!

I get pretty caught up every once in awhile in other people's business -meaning my friends. Not because I'm a nosy mf, but more because I make excessive efforts to protect them -and its unnecessary. It's a source of energy suckage for me and in real life my friends don't need this so called "help". Today I am actively telling myself to just let go of it. Letting go of the responsibility that is not even mine. Letting go of the people who don't feel responsible, and letting go of situations that might require too much of this attention. The universe is going to play out what it wants to play out and my friends will either do something about it when it affects them, or not.
