I set two calendar entries aside last week to save them:
Read that again:
If you have destructive mental habits- if you get annoyed and bothered easily, if you feel angry and frustrated a great deal of the time, or if you’re constantly wishing things were different– these identical tendencies will follow you wherever you go.
Yikes. That does not sound good, does it. Something about this just conjures up an image of a very…. unhappy person. It also makes me picture one of those dark clouds following a person around, raining on them, like you see in the comics. And I envision the person moving crabbily from one place to the next, wondering why it is always raining where they are.
The calendar followed up the next day with this one:
Ah. Softer. Graceful. That sounds nice.
Getting rid of the “reaction” method to life and instead viewing everything with a little more perspective sounds much… better.
It’s something to keep in mind as we start our Monday, no? 🙂 Less destruction, more softness.
I am grateful for this silver Christmas tree music box from my grandma. It was hers, but before she died, she labeled it to be given to me. I had a music box collection growing up, so it was fitting that it would go to me. Every year when I pull it out, I love to flip it upside down and see her handwriting on the bottom. I taped the sticky note on years ago because I never want to lose it!
