The weekend review. A real week.

I think this last week has been the first when I've faced the good and the bad with equal acceptance and good grace.

I've always felt that the things that upset or dragged me down couldn't be totally forgotten but how to include them with the positives was a problem. Then Jojesek came to the rescue and in her blog on Tuesday ( listed the "seven attitudinal factors", mindfulness principles of Jon Kabat-Zinn. Who in turn got these from Buddhism. Number seven, Acceptance is the way to go for me.

I'm on call this weekend so I'm planning to curl up on the sofa, read and reread those seven principles and get to understand them and how they an fit into my life. The easy part will be where my life already aligns itself to them. The more interesting will be changing habits ingrained within me. Taking into account my currant positive state this wouldn't appear to be an impossible task.

Onwards and upwards in the pursuit of happyness :-)
