Eckhart Tolle wrote The Power of Now just for me! Or so it seems.
Anyway, I had a particularly challenging event going on today which was sort of “taking me over” and “ruining my day,” as I actually put it. But I was reminded that like Mr Tolle says in the aforementioned classic book, “It’s easy to stay present (be at peace) when everything is going well, but it is a real test to get present when things are not going so smoothly,” or words to that effect.
Well that reminder turned my day around. No, it wasn’t a perfect rest of the day, but I managed to get present and work my way through a real challenge. And I credit that to my being able to get present when I needed to.
Thank goodness for small favors!
