the week is full of pauses and deep breaths as my heart fills and then flutters with
worry. there is amazing news, along with real life.
i allow myself to feel both, but snap when fear takes over.
but i recognize it, and don’t allow it to linger.
the dog and i spend a night alone, while he is out of town.
i sleep in the next morning, and sit outside with my latte,
in my morning clothes, until almost 10:00am.
it seems, that for the first time in months, i can
hear myself think.
isn’t love much easier than anger?
doesn’t empathy win over judgement?
and yes. . .
Gratitude, not understanding, is the secret to joy and equanimity.
- Anne Lamott
i choose gratitude and kindness towards myself and others.
i allow joy in, without guilt or judgement.
i notice when i am second guessing and work on trusting myself, my heart and my values,
when i do this, life does not seem so complicated . . .
