Today has been all about Surrender.
It started with my morning walk with Libi. As usual, she was stopping every few feet to sniff and poke and pee. I found myself getting annoyed but caught myself and flipped over into Easy World mode, telling myself, hey, this is HER walk (MY walk is longer with her in a backpack)! And why am I in such a rush? It’s 6:30am and I work for myself! She’s been stuck inside all winter, it’s Spring, and there are LOTS of smells that are enticing her, so let her enjoy this beautiful morning, too! I immediately relaxed and our walk was so much more pleasurable. Sigh, now that wasn’t so hard, was it?
I was tested several more times during the day, as wave after wave of not-good news came flooding in, each report costing me more money than the last. With each one, I examined it to see if there was anything I could do to change the situation, and if not, I surrendered and let it go. I stayed amazingly calm.
LOTS of changes going on here!
