"the greatest power is often simple patience."

Today, I am grateful for the woman who cleans my house and for the financial freedom that affords me this luxury.  She does a spectacular job and I love the feeling of walking into a clean home at the end of my week; it immediately relaxes me.  I am learning how my mind jumps to judgments and comparisons when I am feeling insecure.  The more I notice this, the more mindful I become.  When I begin to turn outward, I pause, take a deep breath and return in.  I accomplished running some errands and sending lovingkindness to a woman who cut in front of me in line. I delighted in writing this post...sitting in my big ragged old arm chair, listening to music, enjoying the company of my dog napping, and the view of the trees out the window. ♡
