Another Monday

P1030481

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.

We are who we are. We have to love ourselves in all our glorious mishmash of contradictions. If our hearts are good and our intentions good – maybe we (I) can learn to forgive the shortcomings.P1030482 P1030483 P1030485
