Excellence. The potential to accomplish great things and grand possibilities; that gift resides in all of us. Yesterday, today, tomorrow…it's there. Will we recognize it? That responsibility is ours.
While sipping the coffee this morning and thinking about my list of projects and to do’s, I thought about the importance of seeing my little ideas to fruition. There was a time in my life when I didn’t realize how content I’d become with just thinking about ideas (and not doing a damn thing about them)…as if those ideas would just magically materialize out of thin air like some Harry Potter fantasy. There are no magic wands…there’s just work. Effort. Consistency. It’s easy to want to do something…it’s more of a challenge to formulate a plan. A dream is just a pretty picture trapped in our heads until we take the time to mold them into reality. Let’s get to work.
So if you’re reading this, then it’s a good sign…it means that you woke up today. How awesome is that? And how many people did not open their eyes this morning? Think about it. Let’s try to cast aside as many of the earthly troubles that we can today (jobs, finances, gossip, etc.), and take just a tiny moment to be thankful. For the air that we’re breathing. For the heart that is still beating. For another crack at life…which is gifted, not guaranteed. Let’s live today. Best of days to you all!
Here’s a little musical mojo for a Monday morning…happy relaxing day to you all!
