Sunnyside Up or Scattered & Smothered

Hey Ya’ll!

Started out this morning scattered,smothered,& muted.

today, as it occurred, whether I wanted to or not.

all rainbows and butterflies ~

it’s about appreciation
of the joys & the sorrows

the mudane & the miraculous
the laughter & the tears

In other words,I was reminded again of how much this program and all
you people teach me to keep it simple and be grateful. Period.

“Just happiness will not be of much help, because there will be no

struggle, to hope, to dream; there will be no fantasy.

Then you know how life functions, how life is.

This is the way,

it moves through happiness,
it moves through suffering
and gives you tone,
and gives you meaning,
and gives you depth.
So both are good”. ~Osho
