French press coffee to start the day (today it's Seattle's Best 6th Avenue Bistro).
Another dark, dull, rainy start to the day. It's mild but it's not very pleasant to be out in weather like this. The sky is a mottled grey with a tint of blue and there are so many clouds blowing past they look like they are running to get out of the way.
I noticed that the buds on the lilac tree are getting bigger and stronger and I know that the rain will help them to continue to grow. So I accept the necessities of nature and realize that the bit of blue I can see in the sky means that with luck, we'll have bluer skies and sunshine later today.
While I wait for that to happen I think I will do some work in my art journal. I was having a conversation with a friend last night about anxiety and changing our behaviours and our patterns. Changing how we view things that happen in life and while my friend is on a discovery through some soul work, work that I have already done, I reminded her that I still, from time to time, need to go back and refresh myself on what matters...and what doesn't. That being petty and small minded achieves nothing. Feeling resentment towards someone else doesn't affect that person or make them feel anything -- because they don't know they are being resented. Resentment only hurts the person feeling it. And I ask myself...what is going to be gained by feeling resentment? So clearly, there is some art journaling to be done to work through these questions and these issues. Are there things in your world, your life that you struggle with and work through?
A little music to create to....
