Old Nonsense

Finish each day and be done with it.  You have done what you could.  Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can.  Tomorrow is a new day.  You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

I don’t have much to say, friends.  I just wanted to check in.  Sometimes I forget to be done with each day and acknowledge that I have, indeed, done what I could.  I always think I can do more, should do more, could do more.  As I begin this new decade, I’m trying to practice letting the day be done and waking up with a high spirit for tomorrow rather than my to-do list first thing in the morning.  I’m working really hard on making sure I take the time to appreciate the sunrise, feel the evening breeze, and make sure that I keep up on self-care.  Stress gets to all of us and our bodies break down.  The only way to keep ahead is to eat right, sleep well, exercise, and do the mindfulness work. I don’t always have it all in balance, but I’m totally going to stop losing sleep over it.  Ha!

Wishing you all great health and divine sleep!
