I don’t know where I am going with this.
The last 24 hours have been rough and painful.
This morning, I woke up with no desire to write or do any of my morning practices.
Somehow I managed to train a little, and that removed a bit of fog from my head. Then I sat down, and I let the rhythm of my breath take me somewhere else.
And these words came.
Don’t save it for later.
I don’t know if you have or had pets, by that’s what they do.
They don’t save energy, love, joy, irritation or affection for later.
They give it all in the present moment.
How often do we hold back?
How often do we apply the scarcity mindset to something infinite as love or happiness?
How often are we transactional, and we give only in exchange for something?
How do I do that? What am I afraid of?
For sure, there’s no risk of running out of love or joy. Not in a lifetime.
So, maybe that’s my lesson for today; do not save love, joy, kisses, hugs, kindness, grace, laughter for later.
