Can you wait for the yuck to pass?
August 1, 2018

The gloomies descended on me recently. Doesn’t matter why. What matters is what I remembered to do. I followed a suggestion I’d just heard, to regard them with curiosity. I watched them threaten an otherwise lovely morning. I kind of nodded as they did their thing. And maybe because I didn’t fight them, they faded.

“Well, that was interesting,” I thought.

And that was it.

It's such a simple thing, deciding what to focus on -- or whether to focus on it at all. But can you imagine a more important decision to make, moment by moment?
