Right Now Is All There Is

This job is what I am meant to be doing right now.  And I should do it well, and enjoy it as much as I can.

I was at the sink, rather awash in resentment , since my maid was on her 4th day of absenteeism. And then I was thinking, why the resentment? After all, these were my vessels and it was my kitchen. Somewhere inside me, was the  feeling that  I should be doing something more important, something better.  I shouldn’t have  to be spending my time washing vessels. But actually what more important thing could I be doing in that half hour? If I looked it that way, not really too much. Even life saving doctors and brilliant scientists and writers take time off. Then everything became okay. This is what I was meant to be doing at that moment.

It does seem an obvious thought and one that we have come across before. But to read it and think I must make it true for me, is quite different from actually feeling it.

And since then, I have been bringing it back to mind while I go around mundane chores. And it does make it easier and me, more cheerful. Even when I make my husband’s dinner, rather bleary eyed, late at night.

  1. You are right! After all it is our own home. But then we all do crib. Still, if you realise,those maid-less days are when other family members are more helpful and actually sympathise with you a great deal. So make the most of it.
