Just imagine becoming the way you used to be as a very young child,
before you understood the meaning of any word,
before opinions took over your mind.
The real you is loving, joyful, and free.
The real you is just like a flower, just like the wind,
just like the ocean, just like the sun.
Miguel Angel Ruiz
Well, it still is Thursday, but not for long.
I have been trying to get this written all day and now
I am determined to see it through to the finish!
So, here goes.
The day started out as usual. I got up late. I would have gotten up even later but Teddy insists on having breakfast before nine am. Then as usual I read the paper and did the puzzles and had something to eat. Isn’t this just too interesting? Anyway…
I got dressed and thought I would write today’s post. I thought for a while and came up with nothing So, I took a walk. While walking I started complaining. About what you ask? There was nothing making me happy, every little thing was worthy of a complaint. It was too windy, which was strange because I like windy days. It was not just too hot, but humid and muggy. Seems Spring is giving in to Summer already. The pollen was bad and I started coughing and sneezing. I hate that. I couldn’t find a station on Pandora that I wanted to listen to, the neighborhood scenery was boring. I think you get the picture.
When I came home I turned the laptop on and got lost in the internet waste land. Took around an hour to find my way back to the real world. Time for lunch. Had a grilled cheese sandwich. While eating I complained about wasting time wandering the ‘net and about how boring my sandwich was and that the iced tea was weak. Ok, moving on.
After lunch I gave some thought to cleaning. That didn’t make me happy so I decided to read a couple of chapters of the book I started last night. Then I took a nap. The phone woke me up. It was one of those recorded messages trying to get me to list my condo for sale. Not gonna happen!
Supper time. I watch Netflix when I have supper. Right now I am watching the Sherlock series. It’s pretty good but I did complain that I have a hard time hearing the TV and Sherlock talks way too fast! Then I did the dishes. I can’t stand having a messy kitchen. Oh, by the way my dishwasher isn’t working…something else to complain about.
And now I am here. When looking for a quote for inspiration I found the one at the top above the cat picture. It sure made me stop and consider my day. What a silly way to spend the day! Complaining about every little thing. I have nothing real or of any consequence to blabber about. I have a good life. A happy life. A life filled with love and joy and freedom. I was such an ungrateful brat all day. I promise that is not my usual self. Obviously, I had an off day that needs to be put in the trash can of regret for being a….well you know what.
So there you have it my Thursday thoughts.
I will try to do better with my Monday musings.
Tomorrow will be wonderful!
