A Beautiful Day

                                                                                                      

The morning that I wrote this entry, my cousin, Melissa posted on her facebook page what has become an iconic greeting and certainly memorable for anyone who grew up in the 60’s-80’s.  Sing along if you would like…”It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood…”  Mr. Rogers  certainly knew the secret to a sweet life.

What’s the first thought that crosses your awakening mind when you open your eyes to greet a new day? Is it one that accompanies groaning or a companion to glory?  Each morning, I set intention for ‘connecting with amazing people and having extraordinary experiences’ and every day I do. Imagine if you will, that you have eyeglasses on the nighstand next to your bed. As you pick them up you notice they are smudgy with fingerprints. How would the world look to you if you placed them on like that? Would you instead,  clean them? It is the same thing with our mental eyeglasses. Our worldview could be smudgy with judgment, doubt or fear, or clear with love, bliss and a sense of connection with all that is.

Take a moment to get in touch with your heart…what do you experience? How does it speak to you?  Most of us ignore its calling, instead, buying into  life limiting beliefs and self deprecating thoughts. No wonder there is so much depression, denial of dreams and folks who give up on their vision for re-creating their lives. If there was one gift I could offer everyone reading this entry, it would be an ab-soul-utely, positively,  deep at your core, no doubt KNOWING that you are worthy of having your dreams come true. With that powerful tool at your disposal, the next step is a willingness to do whatever it takes to see it blossom. See, my take on these things is that we don’t necessarily ‘do the best we can'; instead, we do the best we are willing to do. Yes, talent helps, yes training can make a difference, but I have seen people with little formal education, work wonders in their own lives and those of others they encounter. What if you knew that by the end of the day that you are reading this, you could claim a miracle?  How would you feel in this moment?  I guarantee that you CAN. A Course In Miracles refers to a miracle as  shift in perception.  If you would take a moment and reframe anything that occurs in this day, you will definitely live in miracle consciousness and as a result, take leaps and bounds into the life you deserve and desire.

One thing I have learned is that ‘atty-tood- is everything. Yo, I’m from Philly..whatya expect?

The vibrant India.arie shares from her heart in the song A Beautiful Day as you dance into yours.

How will life surprise you today?  Let your new day dawn magnificently~

    Had to take my smudgy eyeglasses from my nightstand next to my bed to read this, all covered with fingerprints from reading and falling asleep repeatedly last night… and you’re right, Edie, the world and your words were obscured.

    Cleaning them put the morning view in focus, along with your poignant words. And yes, the world is now once again “clear with love, bliss and a sense of connection with all that is.”

    Thank you
