Keeping that Angel Close
I had something unpleasant to face today. My world operates better when it is through rose colored glasses. Not the make believe unrealistic kind but the ones where I see a silver lining in anything.
I have discovered that it doesn’t matter as much what the world throws at you but how you perceive, how you react to it. Old Rose Kennedy was just one of many who said that it doesn’t matter it just matters how you handle it.
2011 has been a year of awakening. I study, I meditate, I give thanks. Sometimes in all this enlightenment I forget to remain humble and get carried away with the joy of how much I have learned and that is never a good thing. Giving thanks is essential for happiness but thankfulness cannot be sincere unless one is first humble.
Yesterday was the first time this year a feeling of fear descended upon me. Over reaction to something that might possibly happen – today.
Then I read The War Fish’s Lair post today and the angel he imagined he had walking with him. So I took an angel with me. Imagining it first, then feeling it. And true enough it went well and my state of thankfulness is exactly where and how it should be.
