Bonjour!!!

27 Sep

Let’s see what I can write and post in under five minutes, before driving, or speeding, to the winery.  In love, this morning.  With the morning itself.  I find it encouraging and revealing, wildly and robustly educating.  Don’t fight or reject the morning, PLEASE.  It’s there to be used as a tone-establisher for your day.  Why be nay when you can be yay, with the morning, or anything?  More and more, I see the classroom as a stark symbol for everything in our lives.  You make the class what you do, and do can be effectuated with every day.

Enjoy your day.  Demand from it.  Or rather, don’t demand, just direct it which way you want it to go.  I’m only now, at my old age, seeing it as that simple.

Avec,

I’m doing nothing today, but enjoying everything around me— every situation I’m in, every person I talk to, every choice I make… noting everything as it happens and falling further in love with the day.

Wrapping up Week 3 of Summer Term.  Thinking myself more about actuating what I advocate in terms of ideas and “advice”, if you could call it that.  This day, a theoretical day off, has tested me a bit.  But I need to be tested, in all respects.  We all do.  That’s how our stories are strengthened and how we as characters find gems in our own characters.  I wrote earlier today to hold on to an image, to dash at it.  What I meant to say was ‘a scene’, some stage with you on it— that ideal setting and circumstance set.  Think of it.. hear and see it… feel it, then sprint.  And if it’s a long ways from you now, pace yourself.  You will get there.  Again, this is something I need to tell myself over and over.  It takes practice, like anything else.  Sometimes we find ourselves in lulls, or funks, moods, kerfuffles, and it’s up to us to pull ourselves out.  Don’t wait for someone to say the right thing, or scroll through a Google search for the right inspirational quote.  Be your own inspirer and motivational speaker.  To improve You, you have to embrace you… be a fan of You.  Study YOU.

Days that test you are the real gems.  They should be seen as the most optimal of opportunities to learn, grow, see the plan to free yourself.  Days that challenge you are like inspiration and motivation buffets.  There’s so many parcels to study.  Over the weekend, have your assignment, or one of them, be noting all your stresses and anxieties, frustrations… if you’re in a funk, write it down, find out specifically why… then you have something to study, attack, grow from… you’re another step closer to flying.  Let yourself be tested.  Invite tests… challenge the elements around you, challenge yourself.  Then, enjoy the growth.  Enjoy the increase in elevation, your new climbing pace.

The day is a

story of stories.  Even, and especially, what you think is insignificant is tremendously valuable and promising.  Right now, I’m having an iced coffee, sitting at one of those small square tables at the Hopper Starbucks.  The significance?  I’m collecting myself, my thoughts and my character, ideas and swimming, skipping in possibilities.  I’m alive–  Better, I’m mentally alive.  All the possibilities can be brought to actuality.  Which do I want?  Why not all?  Why not treat yourself to everything you want?

Be tireless.  Use and mold every moment to be your own.  The story and all the stories within it, like RIGHT NOW, are yours… are valuable, are more than enough to get you where you want to be.

Enjoy your day.  Be creative, happy, and free.

when you see a story.

Your story.

Your story and your character, YOUR identity, is what leads.

NOTHING.  ELSE.
