We are prone to starting the morning with distractions. A screen, a to do list, a scramble to complete perpetual chores. We start it with our mind in yesterday, at that appointment, that meeting, in next week, on Christmas morning making sure all presents are under the tree. It is ferociously hard some days just to open your eyes and breathe.
But today has something for you, and it’s worthy of filling your lungs with the breath of it.
When we feel the calling of something we often switch off. The world seems to validate what we do far more than who we are.
We try to quiet it, because growth feels uncomfortable and we have been taught for so long that discomfort is to be avoided rather than explored. It takes courage to openly wonder. It takes courage to sit in this feeling as it stretches us. To remember that this feeling that feels too big for our chest is happening for us, not to us.
Today life is calling you to growth in some way. It has plans to make you laugh, give you pleasure, fill you with music… and leave you different than the day before.
This day is not an accident; a random flip of the calendar as it moves from one to another. This day has purpose.
You are not an accident; your quirks, desires and dreams that feel too silly to say out loud. This day has a purpose for you.
Ask questions of yourself today. Big questions. Hard questions. Delicious questions.
You have the answers, they’re woven into the fibres of your being.
Listen to them.
What do you want to create in this world? In this life? In your health? In this family or work of yours?
Welcome to today. This is day one.
