Whether we’re ready or not
(or like it or not),
life is full to the brim.
Full of good. Of Bad. And of in-between.
(You and I both know it.)
Today, it’s raining outside, reminding me that
it rains on the just and the unjust alike.
So. Yeah. I just have to ask (you and me both):
What’s our response to today?
Will we stand back with distrust, disgust, and grumbling
or throw our arms wide, embracing the drops,
making meaning from the situation
(in a choice that’s good)
In your art…
In your business…
In your relationships…
In your plans for the future…
Some days black coffee is best.
(Strong black coffee that gets us to plow through, firm, resolute.)
But on other days, I say go for the foam.
Give yourself something special.
Cut yourself slack.
Purposefully list, list, list the good
and mull, remember, remind, and embrace the vision.
Take it head-on.
Dig deep, dig in.
Make it count.
Nice sentiment, as always, Erin 🙂 Most days I go for the foam 😉 *Thup
Yes, I embrace the drops – of rain and sunshine AND tea. (I need a mug that says write, drink tea, repeat). I enjoyed your poem!.
lol on the tea mug. Agreed.:) Thanks for the follow and shared sentiment. Raising my mug to you…*Thup
On my chamomile now – need to calm down a bit. I raise the mug to you and thank you for the *Thup!
Good for you Erin! Love this. How wonder to awake to a new day with positive inspiration! Thank you!
