Anxiety and fear of all the projections and what may come that my mind can conjure. Breathe the moment and be present.
My better half cooked me a delicious meal last night despite the fact that we didn’t have the best of days together.
I am grateful that I woke up this morning and seem to have all body parts and senses in tact. I’m grateful that I have food to eat and coffee to drink. I’m grateful for my better half who makes ,y life more fulfilling and interesting.
Breathe and as best possible be in and aware of the present. Listening seems like a reasonable venue to availability.
That change is ever present.
I work in sales, and yesterday met.a customer that I have always wanted to meet but who has been inaccessible. Nice first time experience
Uncertainty is the gift that keeps on giving to me and which spices, what otherwise could become a mundane existence. Sometimes the spices of uncertainty are sweet and savory while other times they are hot or bitter. Whatever the taste, they are present. And they usually beckon a choice from me.
For me there is comfort when I reflect on our “collectiveness” as human beings. While all unique in many ways, we also share many of the exact needs (oxygen, food, water, love, etc.). And this sharing of needs reminds me that in life’s true essence, we are united and that the same “Source”, be it God, a Higher Power, etc. is there with us.
My cats, my desk, a photo of my mother who recently passed away, a poster sized photo of 34th street in Manhattan that my husband took, memorabilia from our various trips that we’ve taken together. Oh and a box of cat toys.
Purring of my cats, wind, rain against the windows when I’m inside, the ocean.
To love despite.
To live in this moment, the now, and not in the land of “what if”.
Thanks for sharing this story.
“I like to play a part however small in the unfolding of life among us.” Nicely written and this resonates with me.
I am sending healing thoughts to you. My mother, who passed away this year, suffered long with back pain. It was painful to watch.
Very perceptive about the “should”
Really appreciated your story and reflections.
