“Every day mirrors the act of creation. Each morning you have to get up and create all over again. The building is never done.” -Bill Clinton
If you are feeling particularly negative right now, this idea might send you to hide in a closet somewhere! But, being an optimist, I take each day as a real opportunity to create something I like. And, as I get older (and my kids are out of the house so I have fewer responsibilities) more and more that thing I wish to create is simply a day that I enjoy.
I still plan ahead when I need to. Continue my work. Do the laundry. But living in this very ‘present’ way offers me a chance – every single day – to create a sense of gratitude for what I have, add loving behaviors towards others, and take time to think about how to care for me and my life so that I, and people that I touch, can thrive.
15 years ago I would have wondered if this were self-centered. Now I see, instead, a ripple effect. My ‘in the present’ happiness rubs off on those around me, too
What would happen in your life if you woke up each day asking “what can I build today?”
