I learned to meditate about 8 years ago and have taught it for 6. So, obviously, I've mastered thoughts and am never sad. That's what I hoped would happen, anyway. But all the neg thoughts/feelings are still there. Okay, not ALL. & that's something. It's a lot, actually. Upset is less deep and less wide now.
And I can enjoy little things. It used to be so hard to enjoy moments, I was always in a hurry for some big thing, like "LET'S GET ON WITH IT!!"
These are some of the little things I'm enjoying today -
That I saw an old friend last night and he beamed as he told me about his kids
That this is what my dog looks like sleeping on me:
That I did a show last night in a backyard and it was actually pretty great.
Listening to the podcast The Dollop. I recommend starting with "Oofty Goofty." American History at its finest.
That there's a guy who's art it is to put underwear on trees.
