Do Not Complain Reboot 30 Day 3 –
A good example of the process I go through. Last night (well, technically, this morning) I was curling up in bed with Bob on one side and Juliet the cat on the other. Both began snoring :). Part of me thought, “really? I’m sleepy.” But then I gave it thought. Both are in good health. We are a contented family. Would I prefer that one or both were not there?
So I gave each of them a warm hug and appreciated that they were there with me, however that happened to be. And they both stopped snoring! And life was blissful :).
I just woke up, Bob is serenading me with lovely guitar music, and I’m having my morning shake. Life is lovely.
Preparing for my 10pm meditation. Focusing on appreciating all I have in life. Every day is a gift. #mediate #serenity Join me!
… Lovely meditation. We have a gently flickering fire, the kitty is sprawled before it; Bob serenaded me with his guitar. Life is to be savored.
Do Not Complain Reboot 30 Day 2 –
It’s been a while since I’ve updated my Do Not Complain project. In general I have gotten much more aware about when I start to feel cranky. I can take a deep breath and a step back. I find that helps immensely. I can put issues into perspective and find a way to deal with the issue in a constructive manner.
There are of course still times that I fail to watch for the approach of crankiness, and fall over the edge into crankiness :). I still strive not to take it out on others, but there are times that it leaks out.
I find my photo-a-day project helps a lot. It keeps me aware of the beauty all around us and how each day is precious. Working on projects with daily progress helps too. I always have a sense that at least something is moving forward, even if other things are facing hurdles.
How are you guys doing in this new year?
