Autumn in Zion National Park, Utah (2019)
Let’s face it: more often than not, we catch ourselves bitching about stuff. We complain about our jobs (or lack of them), about the little pay we get, or the long hours we put into those jobs, we complain about the traffic, the miserable cold weather, or the unbearable humidity, or the sixty five days in a streak without seeing a cloud in the sky (move to Los Ángeles and you will know what I am talking about), we complain about politics and the current White House host (yes, reasonable people have good reasons to reject a self serving president), we abhor becoming sick with a flu virus.
All right. In the big context of things, our complaints amount to nothing. We all know that, in the bottom of hearts. But, more importantly, these kind of negative life perceptions are extremely blinding and they suck our energy out. We are left with no desire to appreciate the countless other things that are going well and among them the not-to-be-disdained and almost miraculous fact that we are simply alive.
None of us asked for this life, it’s true. In many ways, it’s an unwanted gift. But, heck, we do have it, it was given to us and now we have to run with it. And since we have it, let’s recognize that, at times, life is painful. It’s supposed to be. That’s an inevitable fact.embracing whole universe without attempting interfere in the
