“If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.”
“Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!”
“Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”
“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
“The beginning is always today.”
You might be right if you are thinking I was searching for a blog topic today! However, today is not such a lost topic. I would suggest that it might be prudent of each and everyone of us to take a look at today, feel today and be present in today! I was feeling tired but when I began to truly question today I was lifted past tired. I acknowledged that I had the privilege to take two walks, spend time with caring people, learn a new knitting stitch (my new hobby), talk with a close friend, eat fresh fruit at breakfast and lunch, drink clean water and enjoy a coffee. To mention a few things!
I know, along the way, at any given time, today has brought joy and sorrow, work and leisure, opportunities and disappointments and all todays have brought me to now! And I choose to believe that today is truly a beginning for what I choose ahead. Today gives the gift of gratitude and the awesome opportunity to just be me!
Acknowledge your today and take nothing for granted. No one is you-er than you!
