Every single moment in life offers us a choice: we can either be in the moment and accept what is happening, or we can resist it. This is a lesson that life tends to present to us over and over. Whether it’s weather throwing a wrench into our plans, or a friend or co-worker not cooperating with our wishes, gracefully accepting what is can be challenging.

Look to your cats for clues on how to do this. To me, a prime example is what happens here on a cloudy day. Allegra and Ruby are both little sun worshippers, but even though they may complain about the lack of sun puddles on a cool, cloudy day, they quickly find another comfy spot to nap in rather than being unhappy.
