Today is officially going to be “My Day”. I decided it was time to make a day like this on my calendar. Hallmark will be caught my surprise and won’t have time to stock cards and silly gifts. I do not expect flowers or $99 jewelry specials. I don’t want a dinner with a house filled with relatives.
No, this is my day, a day to listen to my body. It’s been screaming at me lately and I’ve been turning a deaf ear. It’s time to get back to my workouts, my walks and just get some rest. It’s a day to listen to my soul. I’m losing sight of who it is I am. I need to center and regain my balance. I need to sit by the water with my eyes closed and just listen, to trust myself and my instincts again. On my day I will not fight any causes except my own, those causes being gentle caring ones, all for me. I will not let myself stray to sights that will only prove to upset me. This is something I had vowed in the past not to do. On my day, I will make a list in my mind of all of my strengths and remind myself that I am worthy of the path that has unfolded before me in the last year, and the pictures I have been shown. I will try to listen so that I might know why, now, I was shown a picture of someone, sparking feelings of a love so powerful, there are not words to describe it.
Today on my day I will take care of myself, my needs, my wants and my spirit. There are many more days coming to learn, listen and find answers to my questions, and I want to be here for them.
