In order to truly experience life we must savour every moment. Doing the dishes may seem like an annoyance, but when we mindfully enter into the activity we can experience enjoyment. Look at each dish, give thanks for the lovely meal that was created on it. Was your cutlery or favourite mug a gift? Give thanks for having such generous people in your life.
If you have a garden, consider the weeds growing haphazardly. To tackle all those misfit plants may seem far too overwhelming at one time. Break the garden into sections and work from there. Through your labour, you may choose to leave the smaller weeds or weeds intertwined into other shrubs and flowers. As you work in the soil give thanks to the billions of bacteria and microorganisms for tending the garden in your absence. Look over at your blooming flowers and unfurling leaves and take in all their beauty.
Is there a task that is difficult, but you have found a way to distill some enjoyment from it?
