Saturday:) My Cup Runneth Over~ Literally

1 May

23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Psalm 23

*********

I know sometimes I go on and on about my blessings, and maybe you’re getting tired of hearing it, or maybe you don’t believe me. But today, I was given a sign! “MY CUP RUNNETH OVER.”

I was making oatmeal in the microwave this morning. I told myself, “Do NOT step away from the microwave. You know how it always runneth over.” Well, needless to say, I did not heed my own advice. it runneth over.

My point being, I need to focus on what I know for a fact. “A watched pot never boils and an unwatched cup is gonna runneth over.”

I’ve been studying a lot of mind over matter, meditation and mindfulness, and the neuroscience of rewiring your brain. The basic concept I’ve learned, and I’m saving you hours and hours of studying… “When life gives you lemons, make margaritas.”

Instead of getting upset about the oatmeal, I told myself, “Well, you knew that was going to happen, so what did you learn and what do you do now.” Here’s an opportunity to clean up the microwave. Cool! When I decided to reheat the oatmeal later, I did not step away and watched it carefully and it didn’t runneth over again. I laughed at the situation instead of getting down on myself and felt blessed that I had more oatmeal if I needed some. A WIN-WIN. A lesson learned and I’m rewiring my brain to problem solve and be happier. THE END 🤗
