While watching one of my Novelas, one of the characters said to her soon-to-be husband, “when everything goes back to normal….” This phrase made me think that things are always normal, because it is what we are going through at that moment in particular.
If we compare one moment to another, that will bring a feeling of non-conformity with what it is. Then, we are not digesting the moment, because we think that things should be different, always looking for something better. But then, better according to whom. It has to be according to that particular person, because what makes me happy, does not necessarily will make you happy. That’s why it is so important to get to know yourself very well. You might be surprised with your own standards to measure everything.
All of us are in different stages of our journey. If we are focussing always in the future or comparing our present with past experiences or with somebody else’s experiences, we are losing the experience, or joy, or importance of that moment. That particular moment is the foundation of the future steps in our journey. If we are pining on the future or the past, well…there goes the lesson for today. Have to go back to class and hammer on that one until we get it.
I am talking to myself here, if it hits you somehow, then more power to this moment.
Since my husband went to Heaven, I try to live my moments as if there’s no going to be another. That’s what propels me to do the things I need to do, because I may not have tomorrow. Do not take anything for granted. My moments, good or not so hot are my only moments. I always ask myself this question every night before falling asleep; if I were to convert into energy right now, did I do all that I set out to do, and am I satisfied with my life. The answer has to be yes, because otherwise I get up and add whatever is pending to the list.
Frankly, this posting seems a bit discombobulated to me, but I am not changing it because I know there was a reason why I wrote it the way I did.
So…it was today…26 September, 2011…a day of catching the wisdom from the universe and writing it down for whatever reason.
Your Happy Contessa

Note: I feel very good today because I was given the opportunity to be part of something bigger than me. I feel proud to say that I had a part in helping “The Combating Autism Reauthorization Act of 2011” pass through the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. Thank you Lucy for giving me this opportunity. When opportunities to be a part of something bigger than us are presented, take them.
