Changing circumstances that don't fit your life anymore...

 I have two Maine Coon kitties, both boys and both amazing examples of spending time in the moment. When I worry about the future, (crazy) or the past, (unchangeable and gone) I look to them for this reminder.We cannot predict or change either.

So, as I sit at my cabin's desk and look out to the misty day on my land I'm trying to think of only 'this moment'. What can I do in 'this moment' to improve myself, and take away the stressful things in my life? What action can I take to get me there?

What seems important is to choose one thing. One! And then make that change and see where it brings me. I may not care for what I've chosen, but it may turn out to be the best, or at the very least, a beginning. To sit and refuse to try something different is not an option. We'll stagnate that way. Moving forward in any direction is a positive step. Let's take one.

Remember Einstein's quote on Insanity:
"Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

Ha! We've all done this again and again. Now it's Spring! New beginnings and rebirth. If you think like me, that it's time to make a few changes for something new and perhaps more productive, look to your pets. They are sleeping, playing, or loving, in just this one moment of time. But they are always ready for the next thing to happen.

It's perfect!
