Sometimes when I’m working on a mindless project (like refinishing old displays for this weekend) my mind strays to unwanted places. I find myself reliving unnecessary & totally unfun parts of my past. Like ex’s that are X’s for a reason. There’s no need. And after a while I’ll catch myself and realize I’m letting my mind take me down a path I don’t need to go. So, coming-to mentally I looked up & saw the beautiful place I was standing, the water in front of me, the golden leaves. I breathed in the air and Mr. Orange popped up so I could love him. And love him, I do.
Maybe we go down paths for a reason & can learn. We can also look to beauty around us instead of reliving our past. I believe focused thinking and meditation help. There’s a reason why so many people who inspire me use it as part of their daily practice. It’s time to get back on the bandwagon.
