Gratitude Too
Hello all,
It’s been some time since I’ve posted here.
So happy to be so inspired and to find an image
from years back to share on this snowy afternoon.

Peace

Peace is available if we choose it.
In spite of chaos and unsolved problems
around us, all is well.
Melody Beattie

PeaceHere is my third post of my new Dream
series that I’ve discovered this winter. This morning
I woke up excited to teach a yoga class for my instructor
who asks me on occasion. Ready to go, I hopped in my car but alas,
the battery was dead; there was no way I could get there so I had to cancel.
For a few hours, I fought the anxiety that creeps in when things don’t
work out or are out of my control. Then I remembered this
quote from a passage called Peace that I read this
morning in my daily reader.

Dream

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams
and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined,
he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
Henry David Thoreau

Wonder

“Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence
and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.”
Helen Keller

Patterns

Patterns
As the new year starts, we’ve been programmed to make resolutions
for how we plan to change our spots in the coming year.
It’s been my experience that they rarely work.
Instead I like to take stock of the areas
where I made progress in the
past year, then settle on
a few intentions:
old patterns
I’d like
to break,
or new ones
I’d like to initiate.
This gives me more latitude,
more room to rearrange those spots
rather than expect them to change completely.
