Clean Slate

As I mentioned in my last post, my computer died and I was off the internet for a few days. While at Staples, they asked me if I wanted any data saved on my hard drive. I said no. When I got my computer back, the wallpaper looked strange with the only icon being the recycle bin. I feel like I got a new lease on the internet.

A year ago, while still taking classes, I had no choice. They would have had to save it all, regardless of expense. Ahhhhh…… The advantage of being out of school.

This feels so good I want to expand it to other areas of my life.

It’s easy to talk about being Zen, but accepting the moment takes on new dimensions when addictive distractions are removed.  I went through some adrenaline withdrawal in just the couple days. The only real option is acceptance. Throwing a fit is pointless. Drama is not helpful.

About cdhoagpurple

I live in Michigan. I was Greek Orthodox (and previously Protestant), but now am more Buddhist than anything. I am single now (through the till-death-do-you-part clause of the marriage contract). My husband Barry was a good man and celebrated 30 years in AA. I am overly educated, with an MBA. My life felt terminally in-limbo while caring for a sick husband, but I am free now. I see all things as being in transition. Impermanence is the ultimate fact of life. Nothing remains the same, good or bad.
