Unattainable Perspective

I guess it's ironic that I look at the huge wisdom on The Obvious today, and feel slightly jealous and quite depressed at how far I've got to go, and how little I've accomplished with my tawdry little life.

Oh, and how long ago it was I climbed a Munro.

Instead of getting annoyed at the grass you are slipping on look closely at the different shades of green, the patterns of the intertwining grasses, the brightness and beauty of the wild flowers dotted in amongst the grass. All of this detail and interest focuses you on the moment and will mean that the next time you look up you will be amazed at how far you have traveled.

If you go into every event looking forward to when it is over or miss the pleasures of every moment because you are anticipating the pleasures of the next one then you will go through life incredibly frustrated.
