"All the things."
.
It's a phrase the kids have been saying recently that I like. In just three words it kind of encapsulates the human condition. Can we in just a few minutes flow from grateful to "jump out of the skin" anger/angst/sad/joyous/BLAHness? I think so! Heck, I know so! And it's okay!
.
As humans we like consistency. We wake up each morning and sort of put ourselves back together. We remember (maybe) where we came from, we notice where we are Now, we envision ourselves far off in the future when things are different and maybe "better." We recall our preferences for food and stuff and people and ideas. We reorient to and regroup all our ideas about who we think we are. So when we stop pushing snooze and finally get out of bed, we are once again "who we were." But are we?! I think not.
.
I like the idea of (at least quietly, to myself) clearing out the old. Trying my very best to begin each new day like it was my first day with this body and personality and talents. If I'm really lucky, or extra present, I allow myself to live "as if" this were the last day of my life! Wow! What would you do? What would you say? How would you start the day differently?
.
All this to say: be all the things. You do not fit into a box, and each day you are born again! May we begin to CHOOSE how we start again. I mean, don't freak out your family and friends by being so so SO new...but consider quietly changing your mind or Outlook.
.
So grateful for you today.
