Daily Reminder # 627

Bird watching is BORING.... 
Winter is back for a couple of days, though I think it is supposed to warm up a bit tomorrow. I hope so.  Going to post a Neale Donald Walsch message tonight because it's jut one of those things that makes you think and is a really good one for me to look at. I get very frustrated because much as I don't want her to me, much of my mother is internalized in me. She picks on me a lot but also shows up with the cats. I spend a lot of time apologizing to them. I often find myself scolding them when they aren't doing anything wrong, but have been playing and made some noise I didn't expect or recognize. Then I have to apologize and say "ignore me, you weren't doing anything wrong."  And sometimes when Angel is being really bratty, I get angrier than I have any reason to get. Usually she's doing something that makes me anxious for her well (playing with electric wires which she never did as a kitten but has developed a fondness for of late). Anyway, I'm not sure what any of that has to do with what I'm about to post, except that many things have more to do with our perception of them than with reality.

On this day of your life, dear friend, 
I believe God wants you to know...
..that there is something 'wrong' with everything.

No matter what you are looking at, you can find 
something wrong with it, something imperfect, 
something that is not okay with you. Don't worry, 
if you look hard enough you'll find it.

There is also something 'right' with everything. 
No matter what you are looking at, you can 
find something right with it, something perfect.

There remains, then, only one question: What are 
you going to look at? What are you choosing to notice? 
What is your perspective?  (I'll bet you already 
know what God's perspective is...)

Love, Your Friend.... 

Speaking of perspective... Seems it's easier to get a
picture of Tara's reflection, than of Tara herself.
Some things I'm grateful for today: (Items in red are pre-gratitude, an embrace of allowing myself to wish for things and an effort to inspire generosity in the Creative Forces of the Universe so that they will provide me with everything I want and more.)
