After reading the first parts of the Mindfulness book, it apparently sets out an 8 week course to follow. So, there we go. I will work on following the first four weeks of the 8 week course for this month. Problem solved.
This weekend I had so much I wanted to get done. And I did get some done. I planted the rest of our plants and did a bit of gardening. We ran to the tip and got rid of lots of stuff that was just hanging around the house, taking up space and being clutter. I doubled checked a store where I thought I saw a few things for our front room, but I didn’t like one of them as well on second viewing and I couldn’t find something else I thought I had seen previously. So, the trip was a bust, but I now know exactly what I want to hang on the walls in the living room which I think will look great. The rest of the time I relaxed this weekend. And we spent some time with friends today. All these things help the happiness and fulfillment quotient.
While there are a lot of things I could be worrying about going on right now, including work things and my future, I am not. I’m simply enjoying what I have at the moment. I think horseback riding gets a big part of the credit for that. I finally loosened up and did a few of the things I really wanted to do. Things that weren’t survival priorities, but personal priorities, like riding. It is scary and fun and is exactly what I need in my week. It is a true source of contentment.
