LIFE HACK – Day 10 in a year of…

Day 10, August 1, 2016 @1:43

IMG_6836I’m arriving in this place earlier and earlier. It is August 1st.  I have felt the changes of the season coming, regardless of their silence and stealth. They cannot sneak up on me.  I’m ready to receive them. Life is not perfect. It continues to be damn hard.  I hack away at it, moment by moment, day by day.  I’m hearing Leonard Cohen’s words:

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.
 

IMG_6847I’m looking at the light in the crack.  I’m meditating to feel good from the inside out, working on myself from the outside in.  Fake it till I make it.  I know I will.  Change your thoughts, change your brain.  Change your brain, change your life.  You become the sum of your thoughts and actions.  Smile! You are on Candid Camera.

IMG_6858Life is hard but I don’t have to make it difficult.  I can choose the simple and easy. I can choose an easy lunch to make and easy to clean up after.  No need for elaborate culinary efforts on hard to do days. Perogies on a bed of stir fried kale and bacon, anyone?

What makes life hard for me is my thinking – It is HARD.  Today I am making a conscious effort to have a different view.  I stop when I’m stuck in that mode.  I think:  Why is it hard? What can I do to make it easier?  I break the task into do-able steps.  I tackle the hard ugly stuff first.  I’m learning to be a life hack.  What are you learning today?

Till tomorrow.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
