If you think that we create our own reality then does it not follow that we can create our own happiness? And, how about the rough week at work I had? Everything that could go wrong went wrong. What about that? I think what I should do in reflecting upon the week is to say to myself that next week I’m going to try a little harder to be kind. I’m going to try a little harder to put myself in the shoes of the other guy. I’m going to try a little harder to say to myself that where I want to be is where I can be of the most use. I’m going to try a little harder not to be judgmental. And, I’m going to find the time for 5 minutes of stillness at the beginning of my day.
I really didn’t realize how very wearing all of this grinding is. I just finished watching Marianne Williamson speak on, “Everyday Grace”. It’s on DVD, our current selection from NetFlix. In wondering what I was going to write about for my newsletter for next month, I had moved from mild anxiousness to Panic City, but, after watching this DVD I can think of so many different things I’d like to talk about.
What I’ve been doing is trying to make music with a comb and a piece of waxed paper that buzzes uncomfortably against my lips. I didn’t need it. All I need to do is sing.
