Yesterday I received an email with this buddhist quote in it and it really resonated with me. There are so many things we cannot control in life and if we try to do this, we are not living life the way it should be lived. We will also never get to a point where we feel adult enough, or happy enough or smart enough. Life is moment by moment and we have to make the best out of each moment we have - not live by our to do list.
"There will always be an infinity of things to do. We can never get our life or our business or our kitchen running exactly the way we want it to run. No matter how we envision it, it can’t be that way. Life is not predetermined to the point that we can get to some stage and then see how it all works. What happens is that we have a better and better understanding of things, we have more and more clarity and ability to deal with things as they arise. But they keep arising, endlessly. The empty sky is always creating new clouds. The pot is always boiling."
Today I am tired. I have a headache and my body doesn't feel optimal. I look around my home and can see many things to do. I could spend all day being "busy" and still have not have an immaculate home (I have a dog and two children!). Instead I chose to focus on the key things that I will look back on and say that made today a good day. A walk, good talks, cooking good food, a nap and lots of cuddles.
