When we let annoyances
distract us, we lose
for appreciating otherwise
“If only this fucking squeak would stop.”
“Then everything would be perfect.”
But life is full of annoyances.
Instead of pushing them away,
why not respond with compassion?
Sit with them.
Compassionately hold them.
figure out what they trigger in us
that we want to avoid so badly.
Pushing this away only leads to
cycles of self-pity and stress.
That which you resist, persists, right?
But by bringing your awareness
into the present moment,
you can deal with it, and
turn it into something funky.
And then, move on to your next revolution,
you badass, you.
Soon, so many things that
used to annoy you will
fade into the background of
your life’s soundtrack.
