Organized Chaos

Sometimes it all seems, to me, like one big mess.

Nothing really works out the way it should, companies don’t run right, banks and the post office don’t always deliver the service, lawyers don’t always seem to protect, loans are impossible to get, phones are not as smart as they should be, and people don’t stand behind their words.

But somehow it all works out; designs are made, goods are produced and delivered, people reply, and mistakes are corrected.

I should just try to remember on days when everything seems to not work out, to pause and wait. Let the day pass. Don’t try to make it happen, not today.

Usually it all works out.

Doesn't it?!

Happy Monday!

    Dear Beautiful Yael….thank you for this centering perspective of HOPE!
    A story my beautiful, amazing therapist shared with me:
    “A Buddhist is holding a cup, savoring the water they are drinking from the cup. The Buddhist says: ‘See this cup, it is my favorite cup….and I know it is broken.’” When I asked her, my therapist, what this meant she said: I know there is always chaos. Accept this and life is easier." I am still working on that acceptance. :))
