At this point today is still a concept that seems to be forming in our minds. We have a basic idea of what to expect from it and a list of things we hope to get done in it. We’ve had Thursday before and so we think we know what it will likely be like…..but, this is life and life likes to have some fun. While we were sleeping, other people were already awake having their lives. Animals, bugs, and birds were awake, trying to find food and comfort and the Earth itself was busy doing its thing too. Seems that nothing is ever really quiet. Life is constantly moving forward. Now that we’re awake we can be active participants in what comes next. Now that we are involved, we can help each other through this new time of sunshine.
Wake up, brush the grogginess away and become a player for this day. Each of us is surrounded by stories that could use some help. Let’s see what we do with that today.
Finding your way in the world isn’t easy. It takes so much time keeping yourself alive, that it’s easy to forget that staying alive isn’t the point. We don’t stay alive, but we do leave a legacy. Life isn’t about the day, it’s about the feelings we leave behind.
When I was a kid, I heard adults talk about time speeding up as we age, as an older person, I find this to be true. The days go by like a filmstrip, frame by frame.
Each day we get the chance to share compassion, love, and strength. We go through these days sharing ourselves. I try to release the sunshine from my soul, but I also find that I’m full of storms.
I do my best to keep my storms in check, but they are there inside me.
I wish I was the person that I try to be, but I’m me trying to be better. Trying to make the most of my days here. Trying to share the sunlight.
Today is the time to let the unimportant slide and focus on the sun. “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine!” Let it shine. Let it shine. Let it shine!
