crashing waves at the edge of a great ocean?
a hand in the white sand, sifting grains worn into tiny dots by millenea of force.
unless I take time each day to appreciate and enjoy the gifts all around me, I get bogged down in my own personal story with all its "suffering" and "drama."
Gratitude is a key.
a huge key to making it in this stressful world.
without gratitude, I tend to sink into irritation, anger, frustration, all the what-ifs and why-nots flood my thoughts and take over.
A great poet said:
a poem does not mean
and maybe if we think of our lives like that:
without always trying to figure it all out.
My journal really helps me do that.
