Today I love feeling good, rested and ready for Wednesday’s adventures. I love that each day starts out empty of action but full of potential. I love that, if you set your sails right, you’ll catch the best of the days wind. I love that sometimes that means learning to enjoy relaxing and other times it means accepting that the day will be busy and full. I love that joy is a matter of attitude, that happiness is looking for the good in what happens and has happened. I love how my life resonates with me since I started actively seeking the love that there is in this world that is available to me. I love when others start looking for things worth loving in their lives, and I love how often they are surprised by what there is to love in life, as if it was invisible until they looked for it. I love that looking is the magic spell that reveals the love worthy parts of life. I love that though looking doesn’t make the bad parts better, it brings the good parts to life and puts the bad parts in a little better perspective. I love loving perspective.
Today I love the great adventure we had last night on the dragon boat. I love that we went out into the bay a little way on some rough water and that the whole crew was ready ready to go and do that. I love that we paddled up the smaller river in town and snuck under a bridge with just a few inches of clearance and saw all kinds of waterfowl and we spun that boat around in mid stream like it was on a turntable. I love that when we played tug-of-war the boat felt like it was moving like mad but you couldn’t tell which way and when you took bearings on shore it turned out we weren’t moving hardly at all. I love that I was almost thrown from the helm deck by the steering oar when we were going backwards and it caught water and swung in on me and the crew thought that was funny.
Today I love cheerful morning drives. I love talking quietly with good friends about important things. I love the chance to be rich that I take once a week by buying a cheap lottery ticket. I love that I haven’t won yet, ’cause dreaming of winning is a lot of fun and I’m not sure if winning could be as much fun. I love that there is a good walk planned for later today.
Today I love sitting in my Wednesday office drinking my Wednesday coffee and feeling good and rested and ready for all the Wednesday-ishness.
