Don’t sweat the small stuff depends on whether you’re sleeping with mosquitos. It never seizes to amaze me how you can be in the deepest sleep when the vibratory hum of a thirsty mosquito hovering over your ear can attract your wide awake and undivided attention.
Before we left Kovalam Beach we got sick and turned off the air conditioning to aid in a faster recovery. We opened all the windows but there are rarely screens here. We had fans and windows on all sides, burned lemongrass sticks and used essential oil bug spray but still mosquitos had the best of us for three nights.
We had to awaken early on the third morning to go to the airport and we were very ready to leave the touristy beach town, especially the mosquitos. I don’t remember us ever packing so quickly or leaving so early for the airport.
Thank you mosquitos for motivating us to be creative with our time. Thank you airline for canceling the flight and enabling a dream to come to life. This is one more example of trusting and surrendering that things will work out. When I can be willing to be ok with what is, things always work out. When I am ready to let go of how I think something should be, what unfolds almost always blows my mind and surpasses any expectations I can hope for.
And when we set our intentions and goals it’s also important to let go of how we think it will come in order for true receptivity to happen. I was so sure that when we got sick we lost our opportunity to see the elephants, period! Whatever we think we know is only a fraction of the possibilities. Yet we hang on to controls like we are captain of the ship. Being human is a lot a things, including funny.
Gala has been keeping me appraised of the tough couple of weeks the elements have stirred in many parts of Canada and the States. Don't cry..
