All the Difference in a Day

Hello, you!

It’s a brand-new week full of promises and prospects.  Are you prepared to be dazzled?  Delighted?  Tickled?  Surprised?

Peer into the gaps of your day, the teensiest of spacious moments, and carve out a figurative place of quiet.  Observe.  [Note to self: you do not need external quiet to do this, but you have my permission to lean over to the next cubicle, to ask if your cube mate might abstain from clipping his or her nails until you’re finished.]

What do you see?  What do you feel?  Is there anything right now that needs doing, so that you’ll see (or feel ) your day differently?  One thing?  A phone call?  A short letter or e-mail?  A dose of someone?  A fizzy drink?  A brief walk outside?  A glance out a window, so you can see the glorious world?  A short snappy tune that might remind you that yes, indeed, you have legs to dance with, arms to wave crazily over your head?  A morsel of chocolate (my personal fave)?  A brief apology?  A d-e-e-p breath?

Do it.

And keep living your wondrous life, knowing that you’ve been given one and that you’re living every minute of it.

Happy Monday!

The quote I live by

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
--Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet
