This morning’s post will be brief, colorful & dis-jointed. You’re welcome. The last 24 hours have set my mind on fire and my thoughts are chaotic and jumbled (yes, more than usual). Yesterday, was an AWESOME first day back on my fitness routine. (If everyone I care about could please just stay alive this time and not throw me for an emotional loop, it would be most appreciated. K, thanks.) I drank my water, ate healthfully, exercised multiple times, you name it. I checked the box.
True story. Next up, the concept of forgiveness. I don’t know why I struggle with this one, but I do. It’s not that I think forgiving people is weak, I think it’s because it appears to excuse people’s poor behavior, thereby allowing them to continue hurting other people. I think what I need to realize is that what I want or don’t want is irrelevant and that it is not my role in this life to play judge and jury. Nor would I want to.
I do believe in karma, but the process of giving up control is a foreign one. I also, however, believe in some form of reincarnation and the thought of having unfinished business with nasty people – due to my failure to forgive them – is not a pretty one. Therefore, I guess, it behooves me to trust karma and let go. This makes me giggle though…
I’ll just trust that their day will come. Maybe when I wrap my head around this whole forgiveness thing, I will even hope that karma is kind when it comes for them. Maybe.
Next up, my garden. I HAVE to get out there. A massive Fall clean-up is due and it’s time to plant some bulbs. I have visions of a (very) small garden party next Summer in the backyard oasis Glenn and I have been working on this last two years and late-blooming tulips would be just the thing to brighten it up. If I underplant my peonies, that could be fab.
I also have always wanted a sweet pea obelisk. I have the obelisks, but my sweet peas fail. I’ve tried scoring them – a painstaking and, apparently, useless endeavour – but am open to other ideas. A little help…. Anyone?
The last bit I’ll leave you with is that Zara Home is available online in the U.S. I found out yesterday from a fellow blogger and thought I should pass it along for all of my decor-mad friends out there. I, personally, am still in the midst of an austerity project, so I leave all the fun to you. For now.
As always, thanks for reading! I appreciate it more than you will ever know. Have a fantastic day!
