I find that as I get more sleep, live more balanced, get less
exercised about what doesnīt go the way I want it to, the
easier life gets. I am finding more ways to live in peace no
matter what is going on. I try not to worry about the things I
canīt change and take care of the things I can make a
difference in. I find that I waste less time that way and have
more time to do more wonderful things. So, life gets pretty
good living it that way. Life is Good!

With life, it is never a dull moment. Sometimes every day is a
holiday and other times, it can be nothing more than a royal
pain in the butt, but through it all, I have learned if I trust
it, life has a way of teaching me what I am here to learn.

I realize I donīt always have to like it, but I have also
learned that if I donīt fight it, there is a whole lot less
suffering. I guess the Zen masters are right. If you want to
eliminate suffering, just detach and donīt try to control
things or they will end up controlling you.

I have done it both ways and have found that detaching from the
unpleasant things without going into denial is a very healthy
place to be.

I am having a hard time concentrating today for some reason. I
feel like I need a break and should take some time off, but I
also have some great stuff around here that needs to be done.

As a result of this dilemma, I am doing a half-pint job on
everything I am doing here, but am too stubborn to just up and
quit and not motivated enough to really crank it up.

What I have decided is that I will just keep putting one foot
in front of the other and keep going as best I can. Just
because I seem to be a little out of sync here doesnīt mean I
have to quit all together. I feel confident it will all come
together as I get on with my day. I am hoping for the best. :)
