You can be so involved in a good thing that it becomes a bad thing.
You can be so close to a situation that you can no longer see it clearly.
You can be so stuck in what you thought things were, or should be, that you don't realize what they really actually are.
Where does that leave us?
Yes, I think so.
Chalk up another one to 'life lessons' I guess...
Take the time to stop and smell the roses.
See the forest for the trees, and whatnot.
Step back and take a moment to enjoy the view.
Savor life. Drink it in.
Cliche? Yes. Certainly is.
But cliches are born of truths.
Very simple, basic truths.
And very simple, is often, very true.
Radical acceptance of what truly is, without wishing, wanting, or needing, to bend, shape, mold, perfect, or change it, is a very good thing.
Sounds like I've watched too much Martha Stewart today. But really...
keep it simple sweetie. ;)
Now, i'm going to eat chocolate chip cookies with my girls, and watch Martha Stewart whip up a perfect coq au vin- without even wishing I could do it!
