Get Out of That Rut
Oscar Wilde once wrote:
"Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative."
So, stop getting up at 6:05.
Get up at 5:06.
Walk a mile a dawn.
Find a new way to drive to work.
Switch chores with your spouse next Saturday.
Buy a wok.
Stay up all alone all night.
Read to the blind.
Start counting brown-eyed blondes.
Subscribe to an out of town newspaper.
Canoe at midnight.
Learn to speak Italian.
Teach some kid the thing you do best.
Listen to two hours of uninterrupted Mozart.
Take up aerobic dancing.
Leap out of that rut.
Remember, we only pass this way once.
May today be the day, my friend, when you remind
your Sacred Self that you deserve to savour your life today.
To savour THIS moment.
To be grateful for your precious life and
the souls you have touched and
who have touched you.
Ask yourself these questions:
"How can I do something today to help me feel free?"
"How can I add to the life of a child or someone in need?"
"How can I allow myself to be in the present and
breathe in the splendour and
the beauty all around me?
And in me?"
