- a person or thing that creeps.
- Botany. a plant that grows upon or just beneath the surface of the ground, or upon any other surface, sending out rootlets from the stem, as ivy and couch grass.
1. The negative: Yesterday was a rough day, I was overthinking; as I often do. The little things that are easy to push to the back of my mind gathered together and creeped up on me. It took a couple of days for them to come to the surface and it didn't happen while I was awake. they snuck in while I was sleeping when my mind was (supposed to be) at rest.
I woke up in the middle of the night two nights in a row wide awake and knew I was off. It took some time and of course, some discomfort to figure out what it was that was creeping in to my subconscious.
When things creep in that do not serve your higher purpose, give them away. Likewise, when things creep in that do serve your higher purpose give those away too by sharing them with others.
I am grateful that I have my person, my best friend that I can give both to.
I took a look in my head and said to myself, what has to stay and what has to go. I get scared when I can't control every aspect of everything because that is what has kept me going (or at least so I thought) through some really tough times. The more I keep, the creepier the pile gets.
I let it go, I surrendered to my safe place and got rid of the creepy stuff. I was not able to answer every question or see into the future by rubbing my magical crystal ball that only shows me my make believe world filled with rainbows and unicorns.
I was able to trust my higher power which comes from Spirit and flows through me; helping me accept at this very moment in time (not sooner/not later) I have exactly what I need to pull out the creepers from the roots. I know that if and when they sneak back in, like creepers often do; I have the power and will do whatever it takes to pull out the little buggers again.
2. The positive: Creepers can bring joy, The image you see here is morning glories. Morning glories are creepers, they are flowers on vines that spread rapidly. These morning glories came from seeds that were given to me last year at the end of the season by a gentleman who lived in a long term care facility whom I met while visiting my patients. He left this life shortly after giving them to me and I planted them this year in his honor and memory. What a blessing to have had that man creep into my life and leave me with not only his memory but a beautiful reminder that I can re-seed every year to keep that beauty growing.
Weed out the creepers that do not serve you to make room for the creepers that fill your life and Spirit with joy for the journey.
