Over a mug of loose leaf Vanilla Sencha Green, I reflect on the challenge that I am not meant to be perfect, but I am meant to be whole. While aspirations are great, being in the moment and reflecting on it is the best method deal with the space in between.
I aspire to be more optimistic in order to gain an uncanny ability to see the good and lessons in every situation. I desire to let go of instances and events that cause pain, anger, guilt, and shame. I want to leave situations unscathed and be left with a stronger moral compass. I will become more responsible with time, energy, and duties completing tasks in a responsible positive matter. I will be comfortable with making mistakes. My final aspiration in life is to be happy.
So how you do I allow the space between where I am and where I want to be continually inspire me?
Well, no. There are morals and values that should drive your life. But sometimes you have to remind yourself of your capabilities and triumphs because when you are aware of your evolution it becomes easier to realize that you aren’t whole yet instead of noticing that new piece that has appeared. Self-deprecation is a fine art. One that is mastered by few, over a long period of time. It’s not an art I want to master or attain.
In the name of inspiration, I want to review the pieces I have acquired. I encourage you to do so as well.
I am resilient.
I am FUN.
I am transparent.
I have strong moral sensibilities.
May there be peace and love and affection among all creations, Lord.
