Jamming with some talented friends. I get to play the djembe while entertained by songs from my youth. It fills my soul, brings me joy.
Gratitude as a word and a verb is the best policy, aside from honesty. Seriously - when I really think about all that I have, I am grateful beyond words. When I focus on lack I am joyless and anxious.
Life is filled with all that I desire. If it isn't then what am I wanting? I can change it. The resistance is often a powerful force. You know what I mean- like when you start a new project or begin working on your next big thing, then suddenly you ask yourself: "Can I really pull this off?" "Am I smart enough?" "I have never figured it out before."
That negative self talk has got to go. I know I am not alone. It is part of the human condition. Today I choose love. Today I choose gratitude. There is no past and no future. The present moment is all I have.
Be kind. Be real. Be true. Believe it and see it. As I write these words, I am preaching to myself. We teach what we need to learn the most.
I feel ready for whatever is in the works for today.
