There is an actor that I love named Leslie Jordan. One of the statements he's known for is saying, “ well, s***.” It always makes me laugh when I hear him say that.
For as long as I can remember, sh*t was my mother's favorite word. She used it for everything. It was so popular in her vernacular that it was my daughter's first real clear word. That was special.
I happen to be someone who loves the good punctuation of a swear word. I think it should be used appropriately and not in a derogatory form. But how satisfying is it to be able to say shhhhhhhIT!
It also means something other than the expletive to me. The long sh sound is calming. It's a way to release energy. It's a way to decompress. And taking some creative licensing, IT becomes internal tranquility.
In this week's episode, I discuss the idea of internal tranquility. That calmness is so deep that no matter what's going on in life, there is a belief in oneself and the balance created. It takes practice. It is not something that comes easily to most of our personalities.
One path to internal Tranquility is meditation. It's a path I have wandered on and often found myself leaving because it was sometimes tricky. I will discuss this and other methods of connecting to the self to create that internal tranquility.
