Cozy Up To My Coffee, or The Zen of Loss

Amber alert! Coffee cozy stolen in the dead of night! Iced coffee left naked! Owner reconciled to disappearance seeing as how I accidentally left coffee with cozy on railing of Stix last night, but still! Stealing a hand-knitted item?! The nerve! I would be ashamed to use a stolen coffee cozy. Today’s lesson: the zen of losing what you love. Know this: everything we love gets lost, or broken, or stolen, it is the way of the world. Love it while you have it; let it go when it is gone. Feel the peace that comes from accepting reality instead of resisting it. Feelings of pain and loss mean we have truly cared. They are just the other side of the coin. Feel them deeply, for they connect us to ourselves and show us our capacity to love.
