My weekend....


It would often seem that everything in my life has been directed as a lesson in trust. Perhaps this is just another way of saying that everything in my life has been directed as a lesson in how not to fear. It would also seem that the experience of meaningful coincidences have a way of increasing when in a state of trust; a state which also implies a state of one being present in the moment. The eternal now. For everything else is as much a mental construct as any words that I may use to describe it.
I'm broke. I have several days of vacation. I choose to trust that it is as it is and I will be as things will be. My normal reaction would be to groan about having several days off without having any funds to support the usual day off activities. I arise and greet the day with a friendly gesture. Like the opening of a good book. I don't guess the ending, I read. And enjoy.
An unexpected check arrives in the mail from a very unlikely source. Hmmmmm.
I've been very strict with my caloric and carbohydrate consumption. I'm watching how often and how much I consume alcohol. My health depends on it.
I go to the local small friendly pub. I decided that it would be no more than one light beer for the night. I was undecided as to whether I would even eat. I figured that I would just see how things go. I was there mainly for the social contact. Ninety five percent of the food, although extremely delicious, would not tie into my dietary guidelines for the day. There was much chit-chat and a few laughs. The owner brought out (without me asking) a generous entree for us to sample (free of charge) that I could eat. (and I did) The Lady ordered a beautiful Reuben. I left almost a third of my beer with a full belly.
Its little things like that....

Thanks for telling me about your weekend. It's nice to have a little peek into your life.

I love it when the Universe puts me in a groove where synchronicities abound. I have also discovered that good hearty laughter sometimes is a doorway to those waves of synchronicity.

Your post is making me hungry. My husband and I are on a tight budget so we don't get to eat out very much, but the past month the Universe saw to it that we can very soon, thanks to temperatures being cool enough that we didn't need air conditioning.

This is inspiring.

It is nice weekend I guess. Alcohol is not bad for health but for mind I believe though little beer is not bad at all.

You are lucky to have a small friendly local; ours closed. Waiting for something new to open up. Until then, it's gin and tonic at home while waiting for a hurricane.

Don't be afraid of fear. Fear is energy.

Face it. Feel it. You're not too old to be afraid. Children love it. Try rollercoasters.
