Poem

“Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.

Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

10 Minute Meditation

I’ve started to meditate and instead of starting bigger with 20 minutes, I’ve done a more manageable time – 10 minutes. Engraining the habit is the most important thing and I can add time later.

I have a weightlifting meet in 5 weeks and look forward to competing again. My focus will be on training for that while continuing writing. I hope the winter time is a season you enjoy. Take care.
