We might delight or regret joys we didn’t expect, compliments and good fortune – which can come about just as randomly as anything carefully planned. Something else, aside from what you expected, will happen. Best be watching – it would be shame to miss it.
What matters isn’t so much what happens in our lives, but how we see what happens in our lives – how we choose, think and act – owning responsibility for our lives. Owning outcomes not derived from birthright, birthplace or formative years – rooted in free will. Our will. Our view, no déjà vu.
Long range planning – myths about process, whereby we believe we can calculate how we will feel, act and live at some point on a calendar. Ha!
You know, I felt some sort of calm before I opened Musings this morning & here you have a great idea that seems to fit right in. Now to just remember to think of things to be grateful for as I roll out of bed. Thanks Mark, have a great day, MC, Bottrel, AB
Perfect. On my way to work (and subsequently reading your email) this was exactly the lesson I told our 10 year old on the way to school.“Do you know why daddy is never in a bad mood?, PVG, Calgary, AB
Glad you got to hug those grandbabies .. they grow up far too quickly. EVERYONE is missing your Gusta walk comments … is leaving her out of your Musings part of the new way of doing things? If so, I for one, among many – obviously – wish you wouldn’t!!, BR, Calgary, AB
