Sometimes it is easy to forget.
Specifically, to forget about what is really important.
Today, I was “on a mission” several times throughout the day. And when I was behind the wheel, I found myself growing very impatient with a series of other drivers. Too slow. No signal. Snoozing at the light. You get the jumbo-tron on this.
So I would blow my little top. I’m a little teapot, short and stout…… when I get all steamed up hear me shout….
Yeah. Like that. Sometimes, I get beside myself. And then where am I?
In hindsight, just what is the point, really? We aren’t necessarily here to be in a hurry, or to have things done our way.
So. This, perhaps, all of us might be able to remember… not to forget.
Be kind. Nice. Unselfish. Caring. Yep. Kind.
Say thanks to people. Or give a compliment. We all need that from time to time.
Take each and every moment and treat it as if it were the most important moment ever. Because it is.
Remember. We don’t have to be happy all the time. Sometimes we experience discomforts. That’s okay too.
But. We find moments of joy and happiness. Give thanks for those too.
Take everything, one thing at a time. And… do things with love in our hearts. Not resentment, or contempt.
Ask ourselves, each morning… how do we want to spend our wonderful and precious lives today.
Some moments, this all seems easier to remember than others.
We can’t be perfect… all the time.
So if we do the best we can… I bet…. we all keep getting better.
