I don't do well with change. Well, that's not quite true. I'm the master of leaving jobs and moving and trying new things. However, I can control all that. But change that's out of my control? It makes me crazy.
This week, the craziness has demolished two boxes of cookies, a box of chocolate-covered macadamia nuts, and two bottles of wine. I've eaten more sugar and chocolate (and consumed more booze) this week than I do in an average six-week period. And it's only Wednesday.
Good things are happening. And some rough ones too, but mostly good stuff is going on right now. I'm pretty thrilled about that, because, frankly, I need the universe to balance the scales this year. I am due for lots of good things. And I'm getting them. But I can't control them.
I'm pretty sure there's a lesson in there somewhere. Perhaps another cookie will help clarify it.
In the meantime, I'm trying very hard to stay in the moment. To focus on the cookie in front of me, if you will, and not on the box of Thin Mints still in the freezer. In an attempt to do that today, I stopped on my walk to work this morning to take some pictures. The clouds looked so cool against the blue sky.
And for the first time in a long time, I noticed that it was a stunningly beautiful day.
