Differing views on getting things done

Where I should like to see you at a trot, when I request it

You prefer to saunter, when you feel like it

I suppose, in the end, getting it done is what’s important

I am trying to convince myself

Hoping to find my zen

  1. It’s so difficult when people and or circumstances do not trot along at our desired speed.
    All we can do is try to practice patience….
    Mine has been truly tested this year and it’s not quite February yet🥺💜💜

  2. I agree with Marina. Our expectations that we put upon others. UGH! When will I ever learn?
    Focus on the journey.

    Well done. It makes me so happy that you continue to keep at this.

    • Yes. I will never learn either. However, must I really look at last night’s dishes as I make my coffee? Is that an unreasonable expectation? Apparently, it is…

      Thank you. I do enjoy these as a push to write.

  3. Different speeds and different inclinations–and it feels like our zen changes with each new moment. Have you ever been walking along the road and suddenly–without a conscious thought–your body starts running? Totally zen because it just happens, where it might be a total pain if we’re forcing ourselves. Thanks for the contemplation. You did great with the challenge.

  4. Saunters of the river was our man in Africa.
    He was so slow he never finished a job.
    When Independence came, the government of Her Majesty asked him to file his pension papers so he could “return.”
    He never completed them.
    He died peacefully by the river. Smiling.
