I am here tucked in my office, cozy in the dim light of my lamp. I feel the tired draw of my body as it longs for more sleep and I look at my sunlamp longingly, knowing that I dare not turn it on this early in the morning lest it throw my body rhythm out of sync.
Again i have woken earlier than necessary and i feel the pull of my body torn between the comfort of bed and the anxiousness of another uncertain and busy day. I remind myself I am adaptable. I remind myself it will all work out today.
In this moment I am grateful. I'm grateful for this tired detachment. I'm grateful for the awareness of my body. I'm grateful to know that as I sit, this tension and anxiety will melt away, as it did yesterday and as it has done so many times before. I'm grateful to know that I am stronger than I may feel in any one moment. I'm grateful to know that today will be a great day and that the uncertainty I feel will yield to feelings of accomplishment as the day passes. I've got this. I have the power to create this day.
Pause for a moment, what do you hear? What message can you take from the collective sounds around you? What will you create with your day?
May today bless you with energy and empowerment. May you celebrate your successes. And may you find comfort in the sounds around you. Have a beautiful day!
