    My backyard. I keep telling myself I want to spend ten minutes in it every single day just to “SEE” it. I don’t want to do chores like weeding or raking. I think I simply need to add this to my daily to-do list.

    To be open and to chose different thoughts than recently; to look at thoughts as forms, which can be transformed. Just as a tree can transform CO2 into life-giving oxygen only with the help of sunlight, negative thoughts are transformed into life-giving joy and kindness with the light of gratitude and reverence. This is what came to my mind today.

    My own creative desires.

    Throughout life I’ve built up negative self-talk around not having enough artistic skill, or a bias towards doing “what’s smart” with my career. But I’d really like to take a fresh look at creative opportunities that excite me. I’d love to shed all of that doubt and just TRY without all of those preconceptions. Looking at it more closely, it’s incredible how much energy it takes to tell yourself you can’t and how freeing it would be to just do the things I think I’m interested in.

    The bottom of the pool when the sunlight shines brought it is beautiful. The sun makes kaleidoscopes on the pool bottom.

    Right now we have the front door and all the windows open to let in cool air before the heat of the day. We’ll close everything up and try to keep the house temperature down, as we don’t have air conditioning and it’s going to be another hot day. Cool air moving across my skin is familiar and so precious as Nature’s AC. We may make a trip to a nearby town that has a quarry pool and go swimming in the hottest part of the day. Water, also familiar and so precious, as Joseph wrote. I have clean air to breathe (now that the smoke from nearby wildfires has moved out), clean water to drink and bathe and play in. I am grateful.

    I could use a shift to more compassion. I often find that I interact with my family through the lens of all of our past struggles and conflicts. Changing the lens to one of compassion and loving kindness would be better for everyone. 😊

    Managing to water all my plants and accepting that next year I need to cut back on potting them. Something we all face in one way or another–the need to accept our limitations.

    Well, I’m kinda stumped by this question.
    I guess this reveals something about me.
    New perspectives usually come to me
    from meeting people or reading. I am
    working from home today, but you
    never know. I did start a new book last
    night, inspired by yesterdays “word for
    the day”. It’s certainly full of new insights.

    Self care. Its not something new today but the last week I have been making a point to have a morning and nightly routine with brushing, grooming, and moisturizing.

    Brushing and flossing my teeth! I’m needing a crown and dreading the costs associated with it. (Costs similar to car repairs) My gratitude grows for the teeth I have that help form the smile I greet the world with. I need them for enjoying my meals. I can see them differently. 😁

      I’m in the same boat, Carla.
      Thanks for the perspective. 🙏
