today I got some news that I didn’t like. so I fought it and whined about it and rebelled against it. and then I was reminded that it’s easy to accept the things we want as blessings. the things we want, when they happen, we say they’re meant to be. but it’s harder to say that the things we don’t want are also meant to be. sometimes what feels right doesn’t happen in order to leave space for something better. so I’ll revel and dance in that space. instead of throwing a tantrum in it.
plus, it’s tough to receive anything new if you’re not grateful for what already is.
today I am grateful for long, slow walks and time to observe the world.
