A Day Well Spent

I love the mornings–early before the world starts to make noise, before the cars taking people here and there drown out the sound of the birds singing their good morning song.  There’s nothing like the new day to set out to do some good thing–to try to make the hours worth the living–to reach out to someone.

Although it’s always in my mind that I should do those things, how many days have I squandered just watching TV, sleeping late, thinking of myself and never accomplishing even one of the goals I know life expects and deserves of me.

Often it’s just a word of hello or how are you doing that can make the difference in someone’s lonely heart.  And can you imagine if they are hurting and in pain and lonely what words like have a good day or you look lovely today could do for their spirit.

I’ve spent years rushing and being a part of the noise the world hears.  There has been day upon day that I spent complaining or gossiping or thinking bad things about others, and that wasted my energy and left me with nothing accomplished.  When do we finally learn that those things are worthless if we have not accomplished anything during those hours between rising and retiring at the end of another TX Winter Sunset 2exhaustive day?

I think it’s now!  For me, I am finding such peace and joy in the day that begins early listening to the birds sing their arias and the quietness of the world around me strengthening my soul.

Johann Wolfgang van Goeth said:

One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if possible, speak a few reasonable words.

Shall we join together to make our days worth the living and be worthy of the next day that comes our way–if it is to be.

Make each day you are given be worth the living.
