Yes, yesterday was a Monday. It is the day of the week that most identify with a bad day. Why is that? A good reason could be that it is when most are finishing up a delightful weekend only to have to return to the dredges of work once more. Not necessarily a wonderful thought. Yet for me yesterday was a wonderful day. I always seem to think I am going to be super woman on Mondays. Tackle all the many things I need to do and make a decent dent into their completion. It seldom works out that way..... Uusally I end up doing things that need to be done yet are nowhere near to the list I created, among lots of things that suddenly spring up unexpected... So of course they were not even considered at the time of the list's preperation. It makes for a good excuse anyway at the end of the day. By the way, my unexpected need that sprung up yesterday: The beautiful sunshine - I ended up sitting outdoors in it all afternoon. Although many may argue for me it was a need that just needed to be fulfilled.
Yet I had no intention of writing in regards to Mondays or unforseen chores that happen out of the clear blue. I have been trying for some time to frantically catch up with blog reading since before the holidays. Several times I have just given up as there is just too many. Yet there are a few out there that I don't want to miss out on. It seems that the new year has gotten many of those in blogland energized with a new sense of purpose. Some I truly think do not even realize that they have it, yet thier post have definately exhibited the added adrenaline. Depth is a good word to describe the overall feel of January posts. I do hope that this pattern continues as I have read some wonderful posts. They have been filled with knowledge not only found in books yet also from self experience and a true intuitiveness.
I wonder sometimes if many of the writers realize just how profound their words are at times when they place them down for so many to read. Some think they are way too young and early in their journey. They are only starting out. How can anything they say really enlighten anyone. They are simply writing their progress down as an outlet for themselves in hopes that some support may be had. There are others, older in age, who have been traveling for some time yet never really thought of themselves as someone whose journey was an eventful one or whose abilities on that journey were anything to really shout about. They too are looking for some encouragement to continue on their trek as at times it seems lonely and the desire to sit for a long spell can be overwhelming. It seems that even the seasoned travelers sometime take for granted the jewels to be had in some of thier gifts to us per their daily posts.
I very much look forward to the coming weeks. Thus far this year, I have been educated, enlightened, and energized with much of what I have read. I truly hope that the trend continues and that we continue to receive the morsels that I am quickly becoming accustomed to. Also I hope that those who hands and minds have penned so much of the things I speak of realize the importance inside of themselves and also the worth. We are all individuals, each with a gift to give. We need to believe in that gift and not belittle it or allow anyone else too. The strength we find within ourselves to continue is the strongest and most durable there is, for no one can take it away lest we let them.
So in closing I say a big thank you.... It is a grand thing technology... Guess we should all send a thank you note to Mr. Gore for inventing the internet. What would we be without it.
