I don’t think I can count how many times I’ve been given a wakeup call. They come in one way or another like a health issue that pops up putting a scare in your life. An accident where you realize you’re lucky to still be alive. The loss of a pet, friend or loved one. These are all life altering scenarios that call for a change in our life.
So, the question becomes, “If not now, when?”
For as Mark Nepo says in his reading today, “There is no tomorrow, only a string of todays.”
The hummingbird comes and goes as quickly as the moments in our days. If you don’t catch a glimpse of it when it’s here all you can do is hope for another tomorrow. Hummingbird don’t fly away.
Sometimes my days are like the hummingbird, they come and go before I’ve had a chance to stop and enjoy what it had to show me. Today is the beginning of longer days to enjoy, offering us more sunshine, giving us a brighter light to see with, and warm energizing rays beaming down on us giving us the energy we need to enjoy every moment. Soon we’ll be sitting on our porches watching the hummingbirds as they come and singing to each other, Haven’t you noticed the days somehow keep getting longer.
But, don’t let today fly away before you’ve had a chance to see what it has to show you because it is the hummingbird after all who shows us how easy it is to miss the most important moments in our life. Capture it before the hummingbird flies away.
Forget about the past,
don’t even look to the future,
all we have is today,
So start from now.
Do you ever have the kind of day where you didn’t do anything you wanted to? You just let it slip away from you, than startled to beat yourself up for it? Wherever you are right now is a new beginning.
So pick yourself up,
brush yourself off,
Start all over again.
What are you waiting for
Start from now!
If I ask you to close your eyes for just a moment. The life before you turns off and you enter into your inner thoughts. But what we see within is made up of all we’ve seen before. If we live within our memories, dreams and thoughts it’s like living in the shadows of our life. As we open our eyes to a new day we take one step at a time moving toward the light and what it has yet to reveal to us. Letting the shadows stay behind us. Starting from now and allowing ourselves to see that this one more day can be a lifetime all on its own.
