Upon returning today from my exercise class…every Friday morning I really so don’t want to go, but once I am there dancing and lifting 2 pound weights, I am so glad I made the trip. I feel re-energized and up in tune with the world.
So after I had my lunch today, I started pondering about our human nature, inspired by an episode in one of my soap operas…It is so amazing that we humans are always looking at our neighbor’s “greener” grass, thinking that if I get a bigger house…a fancy car…the perfect closet with designers’ clothes…the people we love dearly back into our lives…the perfect boyfriend or girlfriend…just the right job…a warmer place in the Caribbean (that’s probably my brain being activated)…the perfect body…and so many other “perfect” things. I think we get the idea.
But…that’s not the contract we signed before arriving at this destination. What contract are you talking about? That’s you saying to me…then I say…Oh yes, we did sign a contract before departing the heavenly Lo La Land where everything was perfect…but we were checking all our good fortunes against the neighbor’s and voila…here we are in this perfect…yes…perfect world.
There are a few things that if I had in my life…I think I could be happier, peppier and better looking. I have a ginormous ego. It’s ok, I can handle it. But…when the humble, angelic little Noury takes over, I am the happiest person on the planet. All it takes is my tiara to be straight on top of my head and my tutu ready for the dance…the dance of life.
Life is not easy, but then I don’t remember anyone telling me that it was going to be. Some things are definitely for sure…There’s always going to be change…nothing is permanent…and that we certainly we are going to die…and that life will go on. As long as I remember those principles, I breathe a little bit easier. Oh yes, the most important…I am to be grateful for all that has been, is, and will be in my life. Everything and everyone that has touched my life has been a blessing, either as a lesson or to give more significance to my walk on this journey.
We are supposed to be facing a winter storm with some snow…I would rather be in Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands…but this is where I am supposed to be right now. I fully don’t know why…but as for me and my house…we trust that my Creator knows the reasons, and that’s more than enough for me.
The muses have been very kind today, they called from Key West and re-arranged my neurons for a few minutes. Grateful for that.
