Tonight is Sunday,
which means tomorrow morning
I always plan to go to bed early on Sundays.
Do some night time yoga,
not eat too much before bed,
listen to calming music,
write a cool journal entry with some artsy doodles,
read the Bible,
prepare myself for the week ahead…
Tonight I stayed up too late watching a movie,
dreaming my life away on Pinterest,
eating too much before bed…
I did do a couple yoga poses
and I did journal –
more like scribbled a few words,
but my dogs are cute,
and they don’t care.
They still love me.
And my bed is still pretty great.
Monday is still coming whether I think I’m ready for it or not,
it doesn’t care.
Not sure if Monday will love me as much as my dogs do,
but I want to tackle it head on and be fierce and inspirational – joyous and hopeful -calm and patient.
I try. I want to find the morsels of goodness in each moment.
Will you help?
Let’s find them together.
Better yet –
Let us create them together.
Even the smallest morsals of goodness are reason to celebrate.
Like 2 yoga moves,
and scribbles in a journal,
and cute dogs.
I want that kind of life.
The kind of life that really feels the joy of those lovely moments –
instead of feeling the constant disappointment of insufficiency –
measuring up, not meeting expectations, comparing, wishing away….
So live with what is,
but also make “what is”
into something beautiful.
I want to make Monday a masterpiece,
even if it’s not quite a Mona Lisa Masterpiece but more like a sidewalk chalk doodle of a decrepit dinosaur.
Let’s make it the most glorious depiction of a decrepit dinosaur Monday had ever seen.
