Re-sharing from a few months ago because I ran into some of the same challenges today.
I fell behind on my to-do list today.
I’ve learned there is no way to push or rush my thoughts into words.
Maybe I have Spring Fever? It certainly feels like Spring is in the air today!
Today I’ll share a Morning Prayer from Rabbi Levy. This will give me some time to gather and sort through my thoughts.
I’ve been reading a lot of material on memoir writing these past few weeks. It is interesting and encouraging to read other writers have experienced some of the same types of angst I’ve encountered lately.
Yes, my friends, I’m being assigned another round of lessons on patience, self-awareness, and perseverance.
A Morning Prayer
There are so many things I take for granted. May I not ignore them today. Just for today, help me, God, to remember that my life is a gift, that my health is a blessing, that this new day is filled with awesome potential, that I have the capacity to bring something wholly new and unique and good into this world. Just for today, help me, God, to remember to be kind and patient to the people who love me, and to those who work with me too. Teach me to see all the beauty that I so often ignore, and to listen to the silent longing of my own soul. Just for today, help me, God, to remember You. Let this be a good day, God, full of joy and love. Amen.
