Okay, so it’s Monday and the world is the same as it was yesterday. There is goodness and there is evil. There is heat and cold, hungry and fed, naked and clothed. Nothing is new…same old story, repeated daily. Some of us may feel lucky, some call it blessed, others say it is karma. Some of us feel despised, some call it damned, others say it is karma.
What is the solution to surpassing the daily grind? Remember back to your childhood, and the feeling of the days leading to Christmas, birthdays, weddings and vacation or going back to school after months of summer boredom (how do kids get bored?) or perhaps getting your driver’s license as a teen. What excites you? Anything? Certainly, when one gets older, we fear aging. There are pills to take, bills to pay, weight to lose, tears to shed, worries to wash away, moments to forget, and people to forgive. Still, I believe if we can keep an innocence, tucked away for difficult times, we can tap into that energy, and survive our defeats.
So as your Monday goes around the curve, look up, think about your day, finish your tasks, and then breathe. Remember no evil thoughts, reconcile with your feelings, pick up a good book, and face tomorrow with a hop in your step. I will pray for your energy to surpass your tiredness and your smiles to outweigh your frowns.
The sun is new each day.
