I so easily find myself frustrated.
Frustrated at the lack of progress in areas I struggle in, frustrated with my limitations.
Frustrated because I don’t think that life is exactly and perfectly the way I want it or expect it to be.
But then there are these moments of clarity like right now. I am sitting here in my rather cold room, staring out at the grey sky day, watching the wind move through the trees and push on the poles and lines. I can feel the melancholy of this damp and dreary fall today, and as I get lost in the gloomy drabness around me, I realize how infinitely lucky I am to be able to experience this, right here, now in this moment.
And with that I realize that everything is exactly as it should be.
It is in embracing the moment, whether joyous or painful, happy or sad, grief laden or laugh filled, that we embrace this precious thing called life. It is all wondrous, and it all has its part to tell in our life. Rather than rail against it, surrender to it; the good and the bad, for it is your life to experience alone, unique as a snowflake and just as fleeting.
