After a good nights sleep, I woke up with a new perspective.
I told myself, Pam, you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do. And then I thought about that. I don’t have to write a blog post, I don’t have to do my morning pages. I don’t have to be good. I don’t have to do the right thing. I don’t have to try.
And then I said to myself, Pam, now you’re on the right track. And then I thought about that. I sometimes forget I’m the boss of this whole thing. I make the rules.
And then I said to myself, Pam, it’s easy to keep things light and fun because that’s who you are. And then I thought about that. Yes, that’s true. Hard and heavy, not me. Light and playful, that’s better.
And lastly, I said to myself, Pam, you are really killin’ this being human stuff. Way to go. And then I thought about that. I am, aren’t I? You are so fucking right, Pam.
(Have a beautiful day, my friends out there in the world. Yesterday was a hard day but I’m going to try to remember that this whole thing is kind of crazy. We’re on a planet right now and we have 99% of the same DNA as a chimpanzee. I’m not sure things we’re meant to be so serious. We can’t make the hard stuff go away, but we can try to have a little but of fun trying to navigate it all, right?)
(And, seriously, I’m writing this in a coffee shop and that makes me so happy.)
(And I ended up deleting yesterday’s blog post for a myriad of reasons. Sorry about that.)
(And here’s one more sentence inside of a set of parentheses. Ha. Two more sentences. Three more…)
Thanks for reading today’s entry in my daily blog. My goal here is to practice noticing. I try to write about small things and I try to keep it light. Sometimes I write about creativity or healing. And sometimes I write about my dogs or what I cooked for dinner. Writing daily here is a way for me to shine a light back on my life and help me see.
