Some days are made for lying in the grass, for tea and sun, for lolling around the garden, admiring things, eating strawberries. Some days are for paying attention, for noticing the water run down your spine in the shower, for slowing time.
Some days are made for eating scrabbled eggs for dinner, for finishing a novel, for wandering in the hills, or for basking. Some days are perfect for watching clouds, telling jokes, feeling feelings, and dreaming. Some days are right for doing absolutely nothing, but being.
I love those stretchy, loungey, peaceful, dreamy days. But oh do I love days like today too. Days that gallop. Days so fast I feel like a mere witness to plans unleashed. Fire-cracker days. Hot-potato days. Days when emails fling out to space and back, when agreements happen, when help is given and received easily, when communications are not only kind but fruitful.
I love these accomplishing days too - days that race out the gate. Even the clouds are flying by fast; even the wind chime is banging fast, a rhythm gongs "Let's go, Let's go!" Creating, powerful, productive days.
Today, I witnessed the sun rise and set. In-between those moments was a delightful flourish of inspired activity, connections with dear people, welcome surprises, rich writing time. Doors flung open with good news at the threshold.
How I appreciate days like today. Days that tip-toe up to the golden sky in the early morning silence, and then burst out the gates in a cleansing torrent of useful activity. I love to appreciate how taking guided action brings the world to my doorstep, connecting me with good and gracious beings. I value how following my bliss opens me up to pure positive and authentic relationships with creative cohorts.
I'm with Joseph Campbell on this…follow your bliss. Put yourself "on a kind of track." Then relax, and hold on for the ride of your life.
