A little backsliding in the embracing

Hi guys

I am still attempting to embrace.

I'm going to be honest, my embracing has lost a little bit of shine - and - if you look real close you can probably see a bit of a frown (just keeping it real ;)
when I put my little miseries, challenges, frustration or disappointments up alongside some real suffering  I realise that the best thing for me to do is get out of my little self absorbed pity party and get back to embracing the bounty of gifts - with passion.


Just before I do

can I just have a little, teeny weeny whinge?

Moved house (usual hard work) landed in a place that has neighbours from hell. Ok, that might be a bit harsh - but they have been  - hmmm - difficult. Two young (theatrical) lads who like to park themselves in the backyard (spitting distance from my bedroom window) and debrief, in what only can be described as - a LOUD fashion. They start at about 11.30pm and go inside sometime after 2am. EVERY NIGHT. Part of their nightly routine is training little puppy dog ' Ollie". "Well done baby. Do toilet for daddy. Good boy!!!!" (about 30 min worth of doggy praise).

Thanks guys - thanks for allowing me a little mo -

Off to bed to count my blessings.
