I wanted to make a photo with Zayts and Buddha in Ayutthaya, the ancient capital of Thailand, and noticed, that Zayts is no more attached to my backpack!
Well, I’m not too attached to any material things no matter how cute they are. But what to do with the blog where he is the main character covering me from all the attention I could get?
So, I am observing my mind and here what is happening:
First part – REALIZATION of the situation.
1. I realize, that Zayts is lost.
2. I realize that hat is lost too, but it is not important at all, I could continue without it.
3. I realize, that I could continue traveling without even Zayts.
4. I realize that I should change many things on my blog to continue without Zayts.
Then, the most interesting part – NEGATIVITY.
5. Lying. The idea pops in my head to conceal the fact, that my toy is lost, and to continue posting photos without it.
6. Blaming myself. I thought that I am stupid and not careful. I haven’t checked is he attached well.
7. Hurry. I hurried back along the same road I arrived.
8. Blaming others. This old lady collecting garbage took my Zayts! These naughty kids playing around took my Zayts! These gardeners watering plants took my Zayts! Or maybe it has been attached well and they stole it? Or maybe they saw how it fell and did not tell me, just took it silently?
9. A cloud of thoughts. So many thoughts running through my head! Distracting thoughts, not allowing me to concentrate on examining the road and looking for poor Zayts.
Then the boring part which makes many people sick – POSITIVITY.
10. Energy! I felt a huge amount of energy, I could run atop of the mountain, the backpack did not feel heavy anymore.
11. Gratitude! I actually imagined saying “thank you” for those who found it, with hands put together – Thai style.
12. Hope! I imagined finding it in the hotel, this was my last resort of hope.
Well, I found it at the hotel and said thank you in Thai style. It’s all right, don’t worry.
Everything can be lost no matter how important is it to you. The less you are attached to them, the better. Celebrate this moment while you have what you have.
