DH and I watched that movie "50 First Dates" the other day. It was on TV. For some strange reason, I really like that movie. It's tragic, yet sweet... and although it may not be Oscar material, it send a strong message (or maybe it does just to me).
That's the funny thing about how I perceive this life works. I think it gives each of us what we need - if we just would take the time to really *see* what that is. And I'm not saying that what we get or what we need is available in equal amounts. It isn't and that sucks. But... I still think the opportunity or for want of a better word, the possibility is always there. Remember the "ask and it shall be given" or "seek and you shall find"? I think that whatever we need is within our reach, but we need to ask (ourselves) for it or give ourselves permission to go after it. Some may say *ask God or pray to God*... but since my perception of God is both within and without, it means the same thing (IMO). But again - I would say - do what works for you.
What's that saying, "... from each according to their means to each according to their needs". I like that too and feel it's a sound philosophy. I don't know how well I practice it, but it makes sense. I only wish we could live by these simple ideas and not let politics and social dictations complicate matters. This post has gotten a little waylayed... but that's how my mind works sometimes.
Right now I need to feel motivated. So I find myself looking for chores to accomplish. We pretty much cleaned the house room by room, now I'm working on getting rid of things (mostly clothes) that I haven't worn in years. It's hard to throw things away when there's nothing wrong with them, but if no one is wearing them - then I have to think that someone might be able to get some use out of them, right? So we're boxing them up to give to Charity.
I also checked into that Tibetan 5 that Djan mentioned on one of her posts. There's a video on YouTube that shows how it's done if you want to follow along. There are only 5 yoga positions... but the plan is for you to do each of them 21 times. Good plan. I could do them each about 3 times - and I'm sore from that! Shows you how badly I'm in need of exercise. But it's a start. Told DH that if I even got to do all of them 10 times in my lifetime, I'd be doing good.
