“At the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair should be messy and your eyes sparkling.”
“I’ve come to the realization that I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing half the time.”
~ David Bowie
“But I’d rather help than watch. I’d rather have a heart than a mind. I’d rather expose too much than too little. I’d rather say hello to strangers than be afraid of them. I would rather know all this about myself than have more money than I need.”
~ Po Bronson
I’m winging it today! The gloom of the rainy days has set into my soul. We all experience less than inspiring days. And as I’ve said many times, it is what you do with gloomy days that counts. So I pulled out my daily readings, dug deep and at the very least found gratitude for the light in my home, the rain outside, the warm sweater tucked around my shoulders, the good coffee in my cup and the ability to wing it one more day.
Regardless of how I feel today I am still responsible for how I act and with some thoughtful effort I can bring you this blog. Success is the sum of all my efforts and not just about today. A small, positive, thoughtful effort means that progress adds up everyday. Even on our shakiest days we can stumble across our strengths. We all have not so good days but when we dig deep we can find something good in everyday.
At the end of this day, I may not have brushed my hair (I did brush my teeth), but I dug deep and stayed true to my responsibility and I did find the sparkles in my eyes. Maybe you can’t put every moment into words. But I suggest that every day and every moment will teach us what we need to know if we let it.
