Yay! My daughter's back. It's so good to see her again.
Today was a day of a general sense of well-being. For no particular reason other than that I look for reasons to feel good. I try hard to stay out of negativity, and look with interest at what's going on around me; without judging the experience. A very extreme version of staying in my lane. I'm not always successful, but it's getting easier, and how I feel in any given moment is way better than I ever thought I could.
All day, I try to focus on the things I like, moment by moment. I'm finding that, over time, more and more things seems pleasant to me. Or I feel happy and secure, which means that anything I see is seen through that lens. It's hard to describe, so while I've been working on it and noticing it for awhile, it's hard to aticulate in any way that makes sense.
It seems that getting pushed to experiences that I find less than desirable are actually quite beneficial, as those types of circumstances make me find new and creative ways of approaching life.
Right now, that approach is to just assume that everything's working out well for me. It always does, and then I end up kicking myself for wasting so much time worrying about something that turned out all right in the end. I'm trying to skip that middle part. No telling how it's going to turn out. But the scenery is thought-provoking, to say the least.
