So, it’s Monday. Again.
Seems to roll around regularly, no?
Could be downright depressing. Or maybe not.
Maybe today isn’t just Monday. Maybe today is Someday.
The day you’ve been waiting for, to start something new, something you’ve always wanted to do, something you’ve decided that you’re definitely going to do.
Me? I recently decided that I was definitely going to go outside every day for a walk. I decided this a few weeks ago, then promptly forgot. Until just now.
Unfortunately, just now the world is covered in ice and the roads are barely wide enough for one-and-a-half cars to pass each other. So, yeah. A bit treacherous.
For the zillionth time I wonder why it is that I live in this clime.
And for the zillionth time I wonder when winter is going to end.
Sometimes you wake up to a world that’s just not the way you want it to be. Rolling over and huddling under the covers seems like the best way to deal with it. But then again, that’s not really dealing with it, is it?
So how to make today someday?
Start it right where it wants to be started. Whether the weather cooperates or not, I can cooperate with grace by practicing gratitude, grabbing journal and pen, noticing gifts, writing them down.
And the most amazing thing happens when you count your blessings, really count them, notice them, see them – the world changes. Your world changes.
“The miracle of gratitude is that it shifts your perception to such an extent that it changes the world you see.” (~ Dr. Robert Holden)
It doesn’t seem like such a huge miracle, this jotting down of a few things that spark a little gratitude in the heart. But it can change a life.
Even if it doesn’t change the weather.
