For most of us – a race-around frenetic morning or life, family, work, community. Doing ‘essentials’ without much thought about anything – just doing what we do by habit, by obligation, by perceived necessity. Aside for eating, toileting, sleeping – nothing is required, those are all just choices. We make them but rarely step back to think about them, to question why? Or why not?
More some of us – a wretched dilemma of waking to a dim view, grim view, horrible view of what is ahead. Not realistic, but to ‘some’, there is no other way to see it.
What can we do? If we are in the first group, we can acknowledge the second group – validate them, appreciating them, hug them, help them – and let them know they matter just as much as we do.
If we are in the second group (face it, we all are at some point), finding something sweet to think about, something happy to remember, something cheerful to do. And do. Just one thing. That’s all we need, all they need. Just one thing. Because, one thing always leads to another thing.
Daylight savings time is over, back to STANDARD TIME, but nothing changes, but we think it has. The day has the same amount of time in it, so if we suddenly have an extra hour available, we should ask ‘what weren’t we doing with that hour before?’
Time is all we have.
Every morning, day breaks – we start again, we have a fresh chance to have the greatest day imaginable.
