“Those who live today, make great memories for tomorrow”
– Random Paper Wisdom –
At the end of last year I set personal goals for 2018. One was to enjoy each day more than you’re used to, which I measure by, each evening, noting down whether my day was good, so-so, or bad.
I’ve noticed a steep incline in good days over the past two months. It’s something I am, naturally, happy about, but at the same time I am not sure where this sudden change comes from. Have I, unbelievingly, grown more positive without realising it? Or have my days indeed taken a turn for the better?
Is it a combination of both? Or something else entirely?
My always-in-overtime-brain is fed by the everlasting desire to Understand All And Everything, but somehow I suspect that the amount of good days noted down on my calendar has something to do with Letting Go.
I meditate three times a week and even if I fall asleep during a session, which annoys me beyond limits, I am no longer upset enough about it to get angry with myself.
My weekly chores list has been modified in a way that makes it more workable than before, and if I still cannot complete all the tasks on it I don’t even feel the urge to get upset any more.
I am happy my days seem to be improving quality-wise, Life, but I am even happier knowing that I am improving my view on the World around me. By living in the moment and letting go of annoyances I am finding harmony within myself.
Maybe the paper wisdom is true: learn to value today, as its memory will put a smile on your face tomorrow.
Good brings out good, it is contagious. It won’t extinguish bad days entirely, but it does help shrink their amount deeply.
Thank you, Life.
