June 12 2013: step six in mind… "This, I cannot do today?" Where are those pesky defects? This morning I feel quite happy that I can do some things quite well, progress and not perfect. In fact I don't want to be perfect, I don't want to be the best at one thing only because the more specialised I get, the less I am likely to see the big picture of life. Open to the world and the possibilities by listening to the experience, strength and hope of others. Realising that everyone who gets good at something has put the effort in to get there. I appreciate the effort that many make in specialised areas, and it helps me immensely on my journey.
The mouse man has been made a report about my mice who have been munching away on the bait put down for them. He has reported all the holes which are "mouse motorways." And a Carpenter will come next week to try contain them, "he he he," squeaked Mister mouse, as he reported back to his mouse colleagues that the Carpenter had "no fucking chance," "there are more holes than there are carpenters and we are very small and yet significant creatures with will and determination to get in, where we like…" I feel Mister mouse is right and it must be a "never-ending story" of acceptance for me… I'm still happy today regardless…
