Keep Paddling

Yesterday, I rolled up to the gas station with ZERO miles until empty. How ironic. I feel it. Most people know the feeling of being on auto-pilot. Doing things out of habit, not mindfulness.

When I am pressed by people as to why I don’t do this or that, or why I don’t seem to care; it’s so hard to explain the emotional energy depletion, and what I have left to apply. (my give a damns are gone)

Where Attention goes Energy flows; Where Intention goes Energy flows!
James Redfield

Just like my gas tank; when our emotional buckets are not full; & our energy is all directed toward one problem or situation, we are constantly driving on empty.

That same day I heard this story on the radio about “keeping- on” paddling. It’s a little different context in the sense of “don’t give up“; but you never know when all your paddling will make a difference.
