Without losing sight of where I should be, I have to proceed from where I am.
Plans get changed all the time. I have always chafed at that but since Covid, many things happen to change plans. I still don’t like it but I am trying to “go with the flow” more and accept that life is an ever changing adventure.
To take good care of myself. I have a cold! It has been over two years since I have had a cold and this is the absolute worst cold I have ever had. I have never called the doctor about a cold, but I am going to do that today. I have had both vaccines as well as the booster shot, so am sure it is a cold. But what a horrible, awful cold, so to take good care of myself, and don’t go out to eat again in a restaurant….
For what occupies me, it’s sometimes not so much what I do as how I do it.
Reverence for every single moment.
Never attach yourself to a person.
Everyone is unique and beautiful in their own way 🙂
That i don’t have to respond to everything or everybody.
I think I had known this conceptually before but through recent meditation it occurred to me how much life is perspective, your way of perceiving things. That the most important thing is not the external circumstances so much as the way we are perceiving these things, that nothing about your situation ever needs to change for you to be happy except your perception of the world and what is happening. A loving and compassionate heart brings abundant joy wherever the person finds themselves, this seems to me the best path to pursue.
Go with the flow. Don’t try to control the situation. Trust.
I loved ‘Whole Brain Living,’ and its 4 Characters, which one of you introduced me to recently. Last night I was annoyed with my fussy Character and just wanted her to shut up. This morn I discovered that she had valid reasons to fuss, and one of my more intelligent Characters had come up with some great improvements to the talk I’m preparing, so I want to try harder to recognize what my fussy Character might be fussing about.
I need to keep up with getting massages. It had been over 3 months, got one with my daughter last night and am soooo sore this morning. Happy Sunday everyone. Actually, the real life lesson is how important family time is:)
I am learning the life lessons of understanding and empathy with my teenagers who are struggling with the return to school and all of the social jungle that goes along with high school. They are truly doing the best that they can with the skills that they have….and the best learning is always very, very messy.
Listen deeply to understand issues I ‘think’ I disagree with, people I ‘may’ judge too quickly, no matter their violence or toxicity. I must be quiet to understand what is truly good, right, and needed to resolve a problem or love another. This is a continual work-in-progress for me! 😌
Patience is a virtue.
