There are three powerful little messages embodied in this haiku: time, thought, and your worth.
Time: As much as you are living and learning in other soul experiences in infinite time (yes, you are!), you are right here, right now, focusing on this life. Will you make the choice to embrace today? Within the past few years, I have lost both of my parents. This was truly a wake up call to my own mortality. Logically we know we are mortal (and our ego fears it), but, we still tend to live life as though we have an endless supply of days. Make the most of today. One of the most beautiful movies I’ve seen that drives this idea home is “About Time”. If you haven’t seen it, try to.
Thought: Is your mind consumed with your “to-do list” the second you wake up? Is there any time today reserved for contemplation, introspection, gratitude for the good things you already have in your life? (Gratitude expands abundance.) If not, I strongly urge you to make space for those.
Your worth: Do you even believe that you deserve to have good things come your way today? You do. But if you don’t believe it, then I’ll bet you have at least one champion in your life – you know, a person who believes in you, when you can’t or won’t believe in yourself – that loves you enough to talk you through this. Connect with that person, somehow or some way, even if it can be only for a quick “Hi”. Today, surround yourself with your champions.
Today is all we’ve got. Today I made time to write to you, because I think you’re worth it. Please, pick up the ball and run with it. Today.
