looking for small goodness isn’t “settling”….or….unsettling

It’s raining hard here….and….even more noticeable….I am going to go out to deliver the mail in a couple of hours.

I am going to go out in the rain with a bunch of paper and cardboard soon and drive and walk around and listen to the weather on the radio and…


It’s all the “ands” that get you.

My sub is going to quit.

I’ll be “sub-less”.

That will make things hard.

What am I going to do about all these “ands” that I expect will come with a day like today?

What am I going to do with all the negative expectations that I gently try to push down when I remember to try to ignore or rise above them?

I am trying to see the good in situations that are hard or unexpected.

I try to see the good in things that ruffle my comfort zone.

I want to let all the goodness in my life dominate my fear and trepidation.

Anyway, the things I fear most are the things that “might”.

I am afraid of the “maybe”.

I worry about the outcomes of things that probably won’t ever happen.

Struggling to see all the good isn’t settling for less.

It’s just surviving.

I do better than just surviving, though.

Finding joy in small things isn’t complacency.

Expansion is good and natural….but contentment carries us a long way.

I wonder if the rain will make things harder today?

Of course it will.

Let it….I’ve seen worse.

(The video doesn’t have anything to do with these ramblings….but….wouldn’t it be great to be on a boat? Wait….it’s pretty wet on a boat. Awwwww, what the heck? It’s wetness I’d expect. That I say or think that it’s alright makes a big difference.)
