Tolle Tuesday...

This, too, will pass...[these] words...make you aware of the fleetingness of every situation.... Being detached does not mean that you cannot enjoy the good that the world has to offer. In fact, you enjoy it more...without fear of loss or anxiety about the future.



The heat is sapping my motivation, and rather than becoming depressed and feeling guilty (I hope), I want to take this to heart. The heat will pass...and even though summer seems to be ending far too soon, I want to enjoy each moment. I want to NOT make this time merely a means to get to the next big event, but rather learn to find the intrinsic value in right now. This is my goal for today, which is just an ordinary day (and hot, to boot), filled with menial tasks.

How do you find value in the 'ordinary' moments?
