What Is Finding Your Center?

What does it mean to find your center? I truly do not know. I looked it up on the internet and I still do not know what it actually means. 

I don’t sit and try to find my center. I never tried. I told this to my covenant group. Terry told me that maybe my center is on the outside. I started thinking about that and I believe he is right.

I have always been a positive person. I try to see the good in people and situations. I’m easily amused. I love to smile and laugh. I also cry and that helps me during difficult times. 

When I feel out of whack, I will go to the porch and sit on my swing and admire all that is around me and then I will read one of my many books. I am at peace when I do this. 

I will also crochet sitting in my chair while watching something on the tele. I love British shows. I’m a couch potato and I’m proud of it. This also gives me peace. 

This is why I believe that Terry is right. My center is on the outside because it’s easy for me to get to it. Maybe I’m this way because there are too many things in my life that would bring me down. I believe so. 

I’m not deep but I’m also not shallow. I live comfortably in the middle. I love life. I love my family and friends and they all help me in their own ways and I’m so grateful for everyone. I believe all of these things are why I never had a need to find my center because I’m usually there.

    Right on Rita! It is a most unusual way to look at “centering”. You are right, centering is both inside and out, especially when they are equally balanced. My minor in college was pottery . I threw many many many pots on the wheel and had to center each one before it could take on new form and actually stand up, balanced, and functional.
    your viewpoint on centering really resonated with me.

      Thank you! I have Terry for pointing me in the right direction. The center doesn’t have to be deep within us. It can be on the outside so it is easily reached.
