At this point...nothing to lose
A few days ago, a great friend of mine said to me something like this: at this point, you have nothing else to lose.
So, this is true. And today I went to my first Buddhist meditation class and the woman leading the med said: the only things in life that we can really control are our own reactions to situations.
My reaction to the recent events in my life, is to go Zen. Part of this new reaction to my always-way-too-chaotic-to-be-comfortable life is to get back into my remarkable things posting.
Remarkable things about today
1) I felt at home as soon as I walked into the Buddhist meditation room.
2) Unlimited raw onion to accompany my dinner.
3) 'A parking spot right in front, that's a good omen.'
4) My bed still feels like my bed.
