Iâ€™m not complaining, Iâ€™m just telling you of my adventures.
Now, you may think it sounds a lot like complaining, but all in all I am a very happy person and I think of people like Jenny and Art that put a good spin on everything and I wonder why I donâ€™t do that.
Perhaps it is that I process information out loud and instead of accepting the situation as it is (which really is the only option) I point out the weird and hard parts and the good parts get quiet as being just the way things are and I donâ€™t think they donâ€™t need mentioning.
There is so much good in my life – Iâ€™d like to turn things around and mention them more often. But, then someone asks me how I am, and instead of telling them how lovely it was to water the garden or read the last chapter of an interesting book, or how walking up a hill to see the new day dawn over the ocean, I rant about the struggles and the oddities of the day.
We are always practicing something. I know that what we practice is what we do. So today, I will practice talking about the joys and not the struggles in my life. Forgive me if I slip.
