Focused on the Wrong

“I believe that joy and gratitude are insuperable… When ever we are appreciative, we are filled with a sense of well-being and swept up by the feeling of joy.” Attitudes of Gratitude

Lately I’ve been a bit on the pity-pot. Thus the absence of my recent posts.

The reason for this is that I’ve been focused on what’s wrong lately – as if doing that will magically give me the answer to fix it. Over the last couple of weeks it’s become an obsession. And the more I focused on the wrong, the bigger it became, and the less I attended meetings and did my morning rituals. (A vicious cycle).

So I’m hopping back on it – starting with this text and a hike today at 4pm. At times like this I need to remember that it’s ok to slip emotionally. But when I do, I simply must remember to get back into the solution as quickly as possible, reminding myself how lucky I am, and how much ILML!
