Sunday morning, March 13, 2011.
Daylight Savings Time is in effect.
This day always feels like you are running after time.
It feels like 8:30 am but it is already 9:30…
Most days do feel like that, in fact, with Life going so quickly it makes my head spin sometimes.
With all the horrifying events happening in our world today,
I do the only thing I know that works to keep life making sense.
I turn to gratitude.
Deep Thankfulness for this day, this moment, this breath.
Deep thankfulness for the ones I love…
Oh, I draw them close to me in my heart..
Thankfulness for my ability to still see what is good and beautiful,
in spite of the evil and the horrific.
Thankfulness for my compassion and the strength of my Love, and for the beauty of my Own Soul.
And gratitude for my Voice, my Creativity, my connection to Others in my world.
Deep gratitude for all that I have and all that I am, really.
“Today, like every other day, we wake up empty
Don't open the door to the study
and begin reading.
Take down a musical instrument.
Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.” – Rumi
I plan on spending this gift of a day BEing, to the best of my ability.
Light and Love, Beautiful Ones.
