Yesterday the clouds were in the mountains – today they have migrated to my brain.
This is the kind of day when I feel I “should” be doing or at least writing something profound. I should be having insights – being inspired or inspiring.
And really, the best I can do is is mention that I was happy to pick a huge bowl of raspberries; that I was gifted an enormous bag of apples; that I managed to get my laundry and house cleaning done; that I took Abby for a long walk; mostly that I napped for a good thirty minutes and it felt fine.
Yup – a thoroughly inspiring day.
So – my emotional state. I loved that talk with Mike last night. He is clear, honest; articulate; vulnerable. These are all qualities that elicit nothing but respect and love from me. And I think – yes – there was a huge hiccup. But do we still have a chance? I like to think yes but in truth, I don’t think that’s going to happen.
So I think that’s sad but at the same time, I know that I live a life of joy.
And so I contemplate the world as it is and my life as it is and realize that I am blessed in so many ways. I understand that there will be days when I miss someone; there will be days that I question myself; there will be days I am sad and days when I am blissful. The human condition – and I hope that no matter what, I take something away: a piece of learning or a moment of growth.
And somehow, as time goes by, I become a kinder person – perhaps even wiser.
Eery day, I wake up – I choose love, light and joy.
