I get excited about going to cafes. This pic was one of my favorites in Tulsa, Okla. (It has since shut down.)
I used to go and sit and write for hours. Drink tea, stare out windows.(As introverts do)…and be pensive. I recall how hard it was being away from home, and my family.
Yet local cafe’s were my solace time.
And across the street is a beautiful park. Right in the middle of downtown . With a beautiful pond & waterfalls .
I have good memories here. Above is a pic of me on that park, enjoying the sun.
Tulsa was a pretty awesome city. I complained initially about moving there, but it grew on me. And the cafes and the friends helped immensely .
Once, my girlfriend had a birthday party here, and we all ended up singing and having a great time.
Tulsa taught me to Receive.
And to yield. To allow things to grow. And to learn how to be content. Receiving isn’t easy, if you can find things wrong. Sometimes it means just learning to be grateful.
And that’s a process, too.
Take the beginning or ending of your day, offer it up as meditative time, think of three things you’re grateful for, release them into the atmosphere, & say thankful. Do this for approximately six months, & watch your ‘life rhythm ‘ shift.
You will be amazed at your level of contentment. And how happiness flows.
