This journaling workshop has gotten me thinking and writing again. I am not creative in the way many others in the class are. Try as I might with the creative journal I am a word girl. Words and photos. This morning at the market I bought some fresh cut flowers, somehow they made the whole room seem brighter. In another week or so I set up the pots on my porch.
Accepting has been a seemingly persistent theme for me recently. I have been thinking about passive vs active acceptance and acceptance as a good, positive thing, rather than resignation to something. I have been thinking a lot about the yin and yang. How to accept things as they are, without resigning to "that is all I am good enough for". I want to be content in the moment (accepting) with what IS in my life, but not limit myself for the future. As always I wonder if happiness is always elusive because life these days seems so much about self-betterment and always striving for more.
Lots to think about, no answers, it is more of a journey of thought I believe.
