I write grateful notes in my phone all during the day and review them at night and at the end of the week too.
Freedom from the suffering of my own self-imposed dissatisfaction
Remembering the difficult times from my past – I’m still here. And the Buddhist concept of impermanence: all things must pass.
My journal which I have written in for over twenty years. The writing is cathartic, and reading old entries is insightful.
A sense of gratitude can help me question and re-interpret my reactions to this moment.
I’m always intrigued by side trails not on a map when I’m hiking. There are so many, and it’s a thrill to not know exactly where I’m going (but I track my hikes so I can find my way home).
Stopping for a minute and just noticing what’s around me. This is hard for me to do.
To smile, and listen carefully without judging.
My regrets. Yesterday I listened to the NPR Lifekit podcast episode about regrets with Daniel Pink, and I found the insights soothing.
Taking one small step, whatever it is. Then another. Then another. Until I have some momentum.
Let go of my habit of wanting to be somewhere by a certain time. Still learning, or unlearning.
How to release my regrets, almost all minor but all persistent
Looking out my window and seeing the sky and clouds is enough. It calms me. The homes across the street give me a sense of place.
Anyone I come in personal contact with, and many others I think about even when I do not see them in person
My journal which I have written in irregularly but frequently over more than 20 years.
By carefully choosing my words when I speak, and not speaking when it might be hurtful.
EJP, I hope you find the qualities you seek
Kevin, I hope you find the relief you need
Antoinette, so true, so wise, so caring. Thank you.
Thank you, Kevin, for a morning chuckle.
