Otherwise, it’s just complaining.


joni mitchellI love Joni Mitchell, and I especially love this quote. I can think of so many things this applies to other than great songs. It applies to stories, comedy, and life in general.

My thoughts are not always my friends.

I’m on day 224 with this broken leg. I can normally stop my rambling brain by weeding my garden, going for a bike ride, or taking a walk. I don’t have that luxury right now. I’m really having to work on being more compassionate towards myself and my thinking.

My first perceptions and thoughts about a situation are usually incomplete. I need to remember take time to step back, listen, process, and find clarity. Otherwise, it’s just all noise.
