BETTERMENT OF ME

I see better with my eyes closed and my mind open.


An old African proverb, Every open eye is not seeing, and every closed eye is not sleeping, means, People can see what’s going on in the world, but that doesn’t mean they can see reality. It also reminds me of an old saying, “Blind in one eye and can’t see out the other.” It means someone is choosing to ignore what they see as if it never happened.
Since Covid, I like to start and end my day with meditation. For me, it’s calming, and I have a sense of peace within (a deep quiet in mind and body).


Meditating is my new norm. A change for the betterment of me.

Hi, my name is Belinda. I am an Introvert/Silent Observer with untold stories waiting for a read. I enjoy people watching, reading, road trips, and writing. I smile, laugh, cry, and can be quite bashful when the opportunity presents itself. My mind runs a marathon that has yet to end, and I write to relax and release.
