You are 24 hours older than you were yesterday. Hopefully, tomorrow at this time you will be another 24 hours older. What did you accomplish? What do you want to accomplish? What are you targeting towards today? Whether you are 15, 50 or 105, each of us is given 24 hours a day in which to live. While we don’t want to dwell in the past or bypass today as we obsess about the future, it’s important to make plans and daily celebrate little victories along the way. It’s those daily steps towards your future that make up the heartbreaking, joyous, amazingly beautiful journey.
I’d like to share with you a beautiful poem that was written by Linda Ellis called “The Dash”. While I’m not at liberty for copyright reasons to cut and paste the poem here for your reading pleasure, you can read it at her website at: http://lindaellis.net/the-dash/the-dash-poem-by-linda-ellis/ However, I did find a picture representation of the poem on pinterest as you can see (hope I’m not breaking any laws here)!
Today, just read the poem and let it sink it. Absorb it, let it sink in slowly and deeply. That’s all, just ruminate over it, meditate/pray about it, write in your journal about it… plant the seed and see what grows.
Ready? Aim? Dash!
