Misery, Joy, and Contentment

Posted by

“Nothing is miserable unless you think it so; and on the other hand, nothing brings happiness unless you are content with it.”
— Boethius

I love that quote. The pressure is on us to decide if the rainy day will get us down, or will be a blessing to the mountain snowpack and our winter ski plans.

Will the 4 am unplanned wake up time be a curse because we are convinced we will be sleepy later on, or is it a blessing becasue it is time away from daily pressures when we can meditate in a quiet house?

Will the boss’ crusty mood be a hindrance to my productivity becasue I take it personally, or will it be a good reason to stay away from him and get my work accomplished?

Will my tired mood be an energy drain and bother, or will I use it to focus calmly on one hting at a time?

Will the lack of CG asking me out on an actual date where he pays and I wear my tall shoes be a bummer, or will I use it as time to get to know him as a friend?
