LISTENING – Day 81 in a year of….

Day 81, October 13, 2016 @11:17 am

qcui7938Day 81 finds me here with my snack bowl, watching Martha Beck live on Facebook.  She asks, Do you feel like sh*t right now?  As a matter of fact, I do, Martha.  How astute you are!  My blood sugar is low.  Therefore, my feeling like sh*t.  I’m grumpy as a bear.  All my aches and pain are magnified.  So are Sheba’s barks.  I’m giving her sh*t and she won’t shut up.  I stand up to see what the H was bugging her.

It is a beautiful big blue jay on the lower branches of the spruce tree.  Thanks, Sheba!  I would have missed it.  I know I don’t listen to you enough.  Most of the time I think you’re troublesome, barking for nothing.  I’m wrong.  You are trying to say something but I didn’t listen.

Today marks the day I will listen more – to Sheba, what my body and everything else is saying to me.  Everybody and everything are talking.  They all have something to say.  It is up to me to pay attention and LISTEN.  Some people and some things are more important than others.  It is up to me to weed out the rubble and keep the pearls.

 

 

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
