Did You Hear....?
When I phoned my friend with these words this morning, she asked me why? What is so special about today? She almost stole my joy, but then I answered her with a question: What is not special about today? We are healthy and able, we received another totally undeserved day, we are surrounded by wonderful and special friends and family. I have a brand new day in my hands to use, maybe to do things differently than yesterday.
Maybe today is not totally perfect, but if we start to look for the wonderful things we have today, this present day, the imperfectness fades away. Just for today shift your focus away from your worries, your fears about the future, your financial stress, your conflicts and anger, look at the blue sky, feel the sun on your face and rejoice in this moment, celebrate it, seize it greedily.
Take out your special cutlery, your carefully packaged porcelain, that perfectly ironed, and seldom used tablecloth and lay a table of celebration. There is no better time than right now! Write your blessings down in big bold letters and post it to yourself. What a wonderful letter to receive along with the bills when the post gets delivered next week!
Tomorrow morning when you wake up, listen carefully, you'll hear it........
If you flutter bye here I wish you blessings and joy. Feel free to comment on how you will celebrate today. Just click on the words "no comments" or "1 comment " and follow the link. I would love to hear from you.
