There are times each of us - when we are honest - begin days and weeks feeling like nothing is going to work out, that we are doomed and sometimes, once in a while, we find ourselves consumed with doubt. Fearful we will live the famous words of Henry David Thoreau, “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.”
Here is where the good news comes in: we are all capable of choosing to see Monday for the good it brings. We can begin to write our songs and then sing the first note.
Monday brings us a brand new canvas to paint upon.
It brings us a new calendar page: tear off the old and start anew!
Monday brings us an opportunity to step into our light - an expression I take from working on the stage. “Find your light!” (or else the audience can’t see you!) For some of us (and I speak from experience) this may take longer than we ever hoped. It isn’t the timetable that matters, it is the fact you find it that matters.
Monday morning, in all your imperfections, welcome. May what we create together be a blessing to the world.
