Yes, I'm back, two days in a row. I'm tired. Very. Five clients were seen today. On top of moving to a new home this week, I stayed true to my
weekly work schedule.
Gratitudes for This Evening:
1. I'll sleep in tomorrow. Ya ay! Rest is appreciated.
2. The day was varied in its demands. Being challenged, having my competency tested is invigorating.
3. I'm settling in at my new place. I value the peace of mind, joy, harmony and tranquility enjoyed at my new digs.
A New Toy: Ho Hum
With great reluctance, I purchased a high-end smart phone with all the bells and whistles. It is used to make calls and text messages. That's all. I'm so busy, I don't have time to learn how to fully use it. I got a new telephone because on the day I moved, I misplaced my old phone. It is being devious and remains hidden.
My response to losing the phone is encouraging. I loved myself, being gentle towards myself. Moving is disorienting. Life happens. If misplacing a phone is my greatest challenge, life is treating me extremely well.
I see most everyone, everywhere beholden by this social devil, caressing it alive while texting, playing games, or using it as their computer in a pocket or maybe, even using it to make a call. My fingers, however, are not trembling, itching to play with the many possibilities it offers. It will remain that way, and will not possess me, is my guess. It is my servant, I am not its."Condemning my imperfections has never enhanced my appreciation of life or helped me to love myself more." Hope for Today, p 19
I'm relieved I'm not consumed by the enticing abilities of this new device. I prefer the quietness of reading, writing, reflective solitude, tranquility, and time alone with God or having a conversation the old-fashioned way----face-to-face with another.
Since Tuesday, this new toy---which came with a beautiful blue cover--- remains tucked in my back pocket.
4. I'm thankful for autonomy, not being tethered to today's technology.
