I don’t believe this is Lao Tzu. All the same…

Today’s meditation was about the importance of taking time to look after ourselves. Sometimes life feels too busy, there’s too much to do to eat well, rest well, exercise etc. But by neglecting ourselves we reduce our capacity to ‘do’ effectively.

I’m just sharing the pictures! It is an outlook I am working on. But as per my profile picture a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step - that is what I keep coming back to.

I do feel like I am making progress, even in my dark times I can believe it and try my best to live by it. I don’t think I’d be on this path if I hadn’t stopped drinking, and if I hadn’t stopped drinking I wouldn’t have found this community! :heart:

Good morning. Some days are tough. I find myself still doing my will instead of God’s will. Those are the days I feel I’m in a free fall want to blame everyone and everything but the truth is it falls on me. By not accepting my life and the people in it as exactly the way they are I become irratable and discontent. I keep in mind though that I’m striving for progress not perfection.

Yes! Progress, not perfection is all we can do.

I am in a place at the moment where I am getting upset because my life isn’t perfect. It’s ridiculous. I have so many things to be thankful for and acceptance is something I continue to try and work on.

For what it’s worth I really appreciate all your posts here. As well as being really useful and insightful, it helps keep me motivated to stick with my meditation practice. Although I am not making it every day at the moment it is still something that I keep coming back to you, and your posts are part of what helps me to come back :blush:

Doing these posts are just as helpful to me as the ppl that read them. I’m glad they help. The holidays are hard and this year is harder than years past. Just need to get step one right all the rest will fall into place if I stay out of my way.
