Hello Dear Readers,
This has been a week. Full stop.
Again, today, the weather has been absolutely beautiful in this neck of the woods. Today, the ‘hood was alive with people who were walking and chatting and happy and enjoying what life had to offer.
And it affirmed that life is good and there is so much to enjoy and take in.
It didn’t always feel that way this week. I guess you can say that this tiger was a little cranky as she was wakening up. Things happened. People did stuff. She did stuff. Obstacles presented themselves. There were rough waters to navigate. There was life to process – some of it very serious and some of it superficial.
And this tiger learned a bunch of lessons as she sorted out how to more deliberately create her life.
She learned more about when to “give in” because in the big scheme of life “it” didn’t really matter. She learned to allow other people’s stuff to pass on right by her. She learned the importance of focus on the task at hand. Perfection isn’t always important.
It is important just to move your life along, little by little. It is important for people to listen and talk and be real. It is important to know that there is a lot she has absolutely no control over and a little she does have control over. And what she does have control over is vitally important to the quality of her life. And it is important to be gentle with herself and forgive herself and love herself. And it is important for her to keep trying new things – to turn over that rock, or look behind that tree or peer over that hill.
It feels like this tiger has had a renewal of sorts as she awakens from her slumber. There seems to be a change in her energy and in the energy of the world. She knows that she is stronger and more savvy about herself. She knows that she can navigate life with more confidence. When glitches and obstacle present themselves, she knows she can figure them out much more easily and quickly. And she is learning how to ask for help. That’s a biggie.
This week has been a week. Full stop.
And I hope, Dear Reader, you have had such a week, too.
Thanks for reading.
