It was a busy day that started rather beautifully with an early morning walk – beautiful mist rising off the meadow, the ponds and the creeks that interlace the property.
And yes, it was a busy day, but it was also full of accomplishment – so I’m happy and satisfied and feeling madly content.
I have a big pot of pea soup on the stove,soft music playing – what more could I ask for?
I had a brief bout today of wondering if I will ever be a nicer, gentler, kinder person. The short answer is probably “no.” I am who I am. My impatience pays off hugely in my ability to get work done quickly and immediately. Yes, it has its dark side, but isn’t that true of most of our qualities? I am aware of this and that’s half the battle. It doesn’t mean I am about to become a patient person – not a chance – but I can at least notice what is going on and work with it to minimize the side effects. – and I can celebrate that quality when it’s working for me.
At some point I think we all have to accept who we are, good, bad and everything in-between. And maybe we also have to stop labelling our qualities as good and bad – those are perceptions society has placed in our little pea brains.
