Today, April 4: D
Alright, I messed up. But it’s no surprise I’m three days behind. I’m three days behind on a lot of things…My family and I are in the midst of a cross-state relocation (said state being Illinois, admittedly a flawed place at times). My husband is our pioneer, having gone ahead to establish our new home and also (this bit is probably important) to work at his new job. Meanwhile, I’m blogging A to Z with a few littles (aged 8 and under) in an old farmhouse for sale (aged 150). It’s an interesting time for me, a time that invites a little creativity and a few extra written words. And I promise they won’t be complaints.
These changes purify you.
These changes awaken awareness.
These changes allow for new life to pop up through cracks that you never knew were there. Yes, you knew there were cracks (there always are) but you didn’t know the shape of things until now. So, back to the basics: A to Z.
A: Awareness. The end of all suffering, the beauty of joy.
B: Begin. and begin. and begin. Welcoming the new and honoring the old (which was, once, new too) which are simply beginnings.
C: Calm. I’ll say that one again and leave it out there to dry. Calm.
D: Don’t Ask. Don’t ask to know what will happen next. Don’t ask to understand. Don’t ask for more than you need.
See ya around. Meet me at E.
