Micro Entrepreneurism, Simple Living & Art
I catch myself, whining about how hot it is. Or the fact that I’m achey. Or that I need to work. And rather then whine, I realize that I should be relishing these things. The heat only lasts so long, and summer is the season of gardening and swimming and other such awesomeness. I might be achey, but its because yoga was fabulous. I am thankful I get to practice. And although work isn’t as much fun as play, the work I do is pretty damn fabulous in the scheme of things. And within that work, I get to spend time and energy dreaming up even more exciting work.
Why then do I find myself whining? Perhaps I just need to put things into perspective every once and a while. I need the reminder. I need to take the time to find the goodness in all of it. Because its there, I know its there, I just forget sometimes. So I practice. I try to be mindful of what I’m saying and what that implies in the larger scheme of things. I try to be grateful. And thankful. And appreciative. I try to forgive. And give myself and others the benefit of the doubt. I try not to take any of this life for granted.
And even though I try, I know I will still stumble. I know I will still need a reminder sometimes. And someone else’s forgiveness or kind words or kick in the butt or calling me out. So please do.
