Some things really are that simple.

Have a wonderful day!

    Yes… but sometimes it is not that easy

      Dear lsawyer: You are right: it isn’t easy. It isn’t easy to be unlike people around you. It isn’t easy to live a life that isn’t yours. But I am not sure it’s easy to hide from yourself, either. (The generic yourself not you specifically). Saying yes to you doesn’t make it safe to say yes to other people, but saying yes to you will help calm monkey mind for a minute, until the next not easy thing pops up; you know, the now what? thing.

      There are some people who say that if you survive the birth experience, everything after that is a piece of cake. I’m not sure that’s true, but I am also not sure that anything is easy: some things are just easier than others, and I am NOT talking about women. 😉

      Some things are easy: eating ice cream cones, sitting at a cafe with a lover talking about anything, pushing a swing and listening to a child’s squeals of laughter walking with the dogs, oh and cuddling. Cuddling is easy. But let me say that there’s a caveat to all of these: they might be easy in some circumstances than others.

      I hope wherever you are in the world, that at a minimum, you can look in the mirror and with open heart say to yourself and no-one else, Yes. Whatever your Yes is, I hope you can say it and take it in. Even if it isn’t easy. Do take care of you :-).
