How to have the best day of your life: Go back to sleep.
Woke up this morning and thought: Today is going to the be the best day of my life!
Not because I have anything great planned. In fact, a list a mile long some of which include finishing my taxes and preparing for not one but 4 guests arriving this week. And a mouth ulcer popped up overnight that I usually get when my body is stressed. Sure signs, I need to put things back in perspective!
This is more than a pep talk. I've set out to envision what my best day would actually look like. Once I got the kids to school, I went back to sleep. How can you start the best day of your life with sleep deprivation? Then, a shower because on your best days, don't you want to look good or at the very least wear clean underwear? Next, a gratitude list. Struggles seem to end when gratitude begins. And now, back to the #writingeverydamnday project.
That's as far as I've gotten.
A mountain of things ahead of me all tossed around like a Parkour obstacle course, but somehow it all seems manageable. When I reinforce the positive and let go of any dialog taking up rent in my mind that says life is anything more than simple. Removing the complicated, today will most assuridly be serendipitous and even fun.
Well, as fun as it can get doing taxes.
The Killer's song dances in my ears and on my heart: "Don't break character. You've got a lot of heart. Is this real or just a dream? Rise up like the sun. Labor till the work is done. Be still. Be still."
