Last Sunday after a challenging week, Ray had gone to run errands leaving me home by myself to relax. I won’t go into details about the events that led up to needing time alone but I will say my home and my psyche were left with a “bad energy” residue from the prior seven days.
I was gazing out the window pondering my thoughts when I noticed a lazy bunny quietly lounging under the rosemary bush in our front courtyard.
I love that the wildlife taking residence at my home feels comfortable enough to luxuriate in the shade on a hot summer day. Ray and I made every effort to build a home that vibrated with good energy. It’s no accident. Our house is the chill-out pad by design — even for the wildlife. How cool is that?
This was a good sight for me. As I watched the creature lay there in a state of ennui, I was reminded that life is too short for bad energy. Look at the picture! Does that bunny look like it’s worrying about turning into coyote food? No! It’s just resting quietly with a ho-hum expression on its cute bunny face. Bunny is living in the now.
Growing up as a depressed kid, my mother told me many times; happiness comes from within. It took me a long time to figure that out (and sometimes I forget). Mom was right.
Happiness also comes from this cute bunny photo. I think I’ll print it and put it on the wall in my office. . .
