The beauty of the broken record



Sometimes when I write these musings I feel as if I'm saying the same things over and over again. Simplify your life. Concentrate on the details. Make friends with your feelings. Create space. On and on and on like a broken record.


I realise that it's because these are the things I most need to hear myself -- the things that are the biggest challenge to me. I learn these lessons over and over because, for whatever reason, they're difficult lessons for me to learn.


Maybe the realisation that we're repeating ourselves can help draw attention to the fact that we need to listen to ourselves more carefully.

  1. I agree with you... there are so many things that I would like to do or improve on... like believing in myself... and if it were not for that constant voice repeating it over and over again in my head, I would not listen. I loved how Fiona repeated the last sentence twice... smart!
    I was looking at your picture above and realized that there is an Arabic word there... Risalah... which means message... brought a smile to my face...
