There is so much to be reactive to in our lives. “If it’s not one thing, it’s two,” right? Lots of little things going awry, and sometimes a slightly bigger thing. The world seems to spin faster and faster and our lives likewise. More important than ever then to stop and be aware of the one or two (or more) things that are going well. The little miracles and small acts of magic that make up our lives. Amidst the chaos of human existence there is an order of goodness and natural rhythm that never fails us. I wish there was a good news channel. I get there by not turning on my television or radio, and tuning into my mind + heart. By petting my cats and listening to them softly purr. By practicing self-care and learning to judge less and accept more.
