For many days, I had been wearing a shoulder sling to nurture a sprained wrist and tennis elbow. I am rid with it now. But minor injuries like these help me keep my feet on the ground. I bring to focus what is important.
I pause a moment and just appreciate that I have arms and legs and feet. And eyes, nose, ears, etc. That I can sing, hear, see. That I have healthy lungs. That I can run, walk up and down the stairs.
Yet I whine and grumble and complain about things I perceive I need in my life. I keep chasing that ever illusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow as though that will finally give me peace and contentment.
I must stop the chase now. Peace and contentment is within me. Share.
