"This is the moment of embarking.
All auspicious signs are in place."
Last week, I was blessed to be able to bring you a beautiful sunset. This morning, the Lords of Beauty presented me with a sunrise of stellar proportions, and the Gods of Coincidence allowed me to be up to photograph it.
Dawn, whatever form it takes, is that moment where all things are possible. At the dawn of a new day, you don't know what it might bring, but you are filled with hope for the possibilities. The beginning of a new job, the first day of school, opening day at the ball park, when every team is a contender; all are dawns, in one form or another, and all are overflowing with hope.
I hope we all find the fulfillment of our dreams today, and every day. Decide to be decent today. Just today, decide you won't snap back at that snotty cashier, you won't blow your horn and show your finger to the asshat who cuts you off in traffic, that you won't look for opportunities to snarl, but rather opportunities to smile. See what kind of day you have; maybe you'll decide to do it again tomorrow...
I don't face the daily challenges that most of you do anymore, having retired over a year ago, but even I have choices to make, and the easy one is always not to fight. Now go forth and, not conquer, but embrace your day. You might be surprised at the difference it makes!
