“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.” ― Dalai Lama
sadly, i wasn’t able to hit all the notes i strove towards today. i got frustrated. i felt whelmed, then overwhelmed. i ordered fast food in a drive through and drove away without the meal as i was distracted with a conversation on the phone.
i have been joking about putting out fires, but am not certain they are being extinguished. i hope there are inspiring vibrations emanating from my being.
i understand that i cannot stop the world from turning and i trust that this shortcoming is working in my favor.
and i tried very hard not to take my piss off attitude today too seriously, and be accepting of my human-ness and forgive my same old attitudes.
today wasn’t my best. by far. it was daft and it was kronk. but better days are on the horizon.
