Dabble master

“One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular.”

~ Tony Robbins

But what if what I truly want is to dabble?

Embrace sloth

“We think if we’re not working, we’re being lazy. But continuous exertion impedes our creativity.”

~ Erica Jong

White board art

My white board beckoned me, and a quote from an Atlanta librarian inspired me. Isn’t June all about parades?

Feels like the first time … like we’ve opened up the door

Look at everything as though you were seeing it for the first time or the last time. Then your time on earth will be filled with glory.

~ Novelist Betty Smith

I try to do this — see things as if for the first time — with this blog. Writing about the details of the starry sky, my work, the crown molding in my dining room, a spring day (soon! soon!) reminds me of their glory.

Hanging there by the front door, it’s a reminder to savor whatever I’m about to experience as I leave the house.

Each day is a gift. We never when the lights will go out, figuratively or literally. Appreciate it. Today, my nearly new running socks and shoes, a hot shower and my taco salad at lunch were glorious.

What was glorious for you today?
