The only thing I need to do is be here now ....

Saw this morning through the ever wise [ profile] dicea a quote I need to see and read and take to heart.

“If there is no joy, ease, or lightness in what you are doing, it does not necessarily mean that you need to change what you are doing. It may be sufficient to change the how. “How” is always more important than “what.” See if you can give much more attention to the doing than to the result that you want to achieve through it.

Give your fullest attention to whatever the moment presents. This implies that you also completely accept what is, because you cannot give your full attention to something and at the same time resist it.

As soon as you honor the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out of present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love—even the most simple action.”
-Eckhart Tolle

I love Pennsic - I do. But the unpack and the aftermath .... yeah, not so much. Except for a 90 min. client appointment today, I have been washing, drying, folding and putting away laundry (10 loads already!!) - or just putting stuff away. *gah*

"Which direction are we headed Mr. Peabody?" (extra credit to those to get the reference)

Last night da' hubby [ profile] lapsedagnostic and I took awhile and went back in time. More specifically back in time via old Livejournal posts. We both started our LJ's back in 2003. It was interesting to watch the evolution of our lives and relationships going through our archives. How we're doing, the state of our poly lives, the kids and various vacations, anniversaries and birthdays are there. It was weird .. and funny ... and thoughtful. I guess it's really true that every once in a while you have to look back to see how far you've come.

I realized I started posting less around the time of [ profile] wilfulcait's last few months. Life was too raw, too real for me to want to post about it. But I've realized there's a lot of things I'm missing - and I think I want that to change. Of course I come to this realization a week before I leave for Pennsic - a time of being away from the computer. *gah* Yeah, I am a great big dork.

Expect that there might be more posts this week.
