Start Your Morning....

Good Morning My Confidants

I truly hope this find you happy and well.

It's a drizzly morning but the birds are singing and anyone who reads this on a regular basis knows how much I love a morning that begins with birdsong.

I truly want to thank everyone of you who actually read these morning posts of mine. You don't need to. And I also truly understand and can I identify with that in the morning rambling, sometimes spiritual, sometimes contemplative, posts are not the things that people necessarily want to read.

I know that many people who read Facebook and morning are only half awake, maybe sitting on the toilet, maybe hiding in a stall at work because they're just not ready to face their boss or whatever it is they have to tackle that day. It's so much nicer to read funny memes or cartoons or Reel videos or LOLCats.

So, thank you.

And as tempting as it is, I am not going to talk about the historical thing that happened yesterday concerning a certain convicted felon, and I do have something to say, and it is surprisingly positive. I want to give us something positive to think about yesterday. But I just don't want to start my day, especially a Friday, thinking about him.

Today I simply want to say....enjoy your day. It's the beginning of a whole new life. You have a million billion opportunities today. When you're choosing, close your eyes coming take a deep breath, let it out slowly, take a deeper breath, let it out slowly, do it one more time, think of something that makes you smile, and open your eyes. Take one more breath, this one cleansing, and just let it slowly leave your body, entering the atmosphere, feeding the trees.

Think of someone you love very much and tell them. It can be fast. It can be your mate grabbing a cup of coffee and on their way out the door. Stop them just long enough to give them a quick kiss, I'm the cheek will do. It will be really surprising if you're a straight man and in that kiss on the cheek is for your straight male roommate! But I've seen straight men do that! They do in Europe all the time. Or just send a text. Just a quick, "Hey just wanted you to know I love you!"

Start your day with a deep breath, a smile, love in your heart, and the knowledge that today anything could happen. And if something bad happens, know that it is just the beginning of something wonderful.

And, hey! I just want you to know that I love you.
