Black and White

"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I will meet you there.” - Rumi

I have always lived my life according to black and white rules.  It is either right or wrong, good or bad, pain or no pain.  What I am learing to realize is that sometimes things just are and sometimes the shades of grey are acceptable. 

I can celebrate that I have less pain even if there is still some pain.  I can look back at the footprints in the sand of my life and realize that I may not be where I want to be but look how far I have come.  I can look at the rules of right and wrong and realize that life will not always play by my rulebook and sometimes I have to bend the rules.

What matters is simply that I enjoy today because I will never get it back and if I spend everyday looking for perfect my entire life will pass me by.  So today I will open my heart to the nuances all around me the beautiful and the ugly, the pleasure and the pain and just live.
