Today I love feeling content even though I’m never completely so. I love when life is exactly the way it seems that it should be in the moment of inspection and while I could pull any number of lists of things that I intend to change out of the back of my mind, in that moment the contentment comes from not needing to do that and being okay with it. I love that life will often tell you what doesn’t really matter at any given time if you’ll listen. I love that sometimes I’m aware that things I would like to do don’t need to be done right away but the moment is such a great opportunity that doing one of those things at that unnecessary time brings even more contentment. I love that though I am not always content, I will always know what contentment feels like because I have been contented in my life. I love that it cannot be forecast or counted on, but contentment continues to show up in my life so far and that’s all right with me. I love following my heart because I’ve experienced more contentment from doing that than from doing any other thing in my life. I love that contentment is the simplest form of happiness and perhaps the purest as well, that it can occur when least expected and is never cryptic in its sensations.
Today I love that I have things to get done this week and they are important and cannot be left to chance but I will still be feeling content as I get them done. I love that chief among them is my radio show for the month, and it will be fun as always, and while it seems to have taken on a serious tone of late I still manage to make it mine and make it enjoyable. I love that there are plans afoot for making more progress in the house here and hopefully I will move them forward this week. I love that my health is not stopping me from enjoying myself.
Today I love that it is oatmeal cooking day, I hope I don’t forget to do that. I love how still these overheated days seem, and how they take me back to my summer holidays as a child. I love how the leaves on maple trees in summer seem so durable and permanent and within a week of them coming out they seem to have always been there, the trees seem to have always been green and full and fresh and industrious.
Today I love sipping coffee on the front porch while I get the very first of my days tasks finished up.
