Remembering to Look After Myself

Today was a particularly busy day for me at work and so much happened that I was feeling completely drained by 2 o’clock. As I left the house to take the trek to BK I thought to slip off my wrist mala and recite the metta phrase I have been working with (May I be happy). The results weren’t magical but it did help me to remember my priorities (looking after my own long term well being) and to let go of work realizing that for better or worse none of the particulars will matter when I’m dead.

May we all look after ourselves and never forget where our true happiness is to be cultivated.
