For Ziggy, today is today. It's not a good day; it's not a bad day. It's a day. And he knows that it's important to give that day the value it deserves.
Now there is something to remember. Today is just a day, not good, not bad, just a day. Each one is of great value and should be treated as such. It's up to me to make it what it is.....a gift.
Truly I won't pass htis way again and to waste this part of my journey is a shame. Today was a day that I had to do a great deal of office work even though the business is closed. It was a sunny and mild day and right now there isn't a cloud in the sky. Did I waste the day by not gettting out and about. No, it was a day to do that which was infront of me. To get the business work out of the way. Would it have mattered if it was raining, no, the work still needed to be done.
Yesterday we were out and about, I had a great run. But that is not today. Today was a rest day, a day to get other things accomplished. There is always tomorrow, and that looks like another important day! I will treat it as such!

Breathe, relax, de-stress, close your eyes...etc...all intended to let loose of the confinds of the day, the clutter of the mind.
I can find myself really stressed and holding my breath a bit or clentching a hand, or shoulders raised a bit. Nope, not anythings that are going to help me in the long run. Literally and figeratively.
So I take time to stretch, roll my neck, shrug my shoulders, deep breaths and the like. I like the rhythm of my relaxed breathing, the feeling of energy flowing. It's like a river, a current, a wind rushing though me. It a good feeling, and one to remember.

Are you your own obstacle?
Wow, a real eye opener there. I can be the roadblock to my achieving what I want to do. I sit myself down in the middle of my path and say, nope, not gonna go any further. Pretty naughty on my part.
So the big question is WHY! Why do I do that, why do I keep myself from moving on!? Maybe it is just easier to stay where I am having found what works for the here and now and not push onward into unknown and uncharted territorty.
I have stayed this same weight for months!! Ok that might be a good thing as it's not going up, but it's not going down right now either. I get really frustrated and look closer at what I am doing.
So as the article says, 'If you really want to achieve it, then make the time or take a different approach (get up earlier, stay organized, learn the skills). Find time for you and your goals. '
Looking closer at my goals and how I intend on achieving them maybe the plan of action. That will lead me to the path I need to follow! Learn the skills to achieve what it is I am aiming for. Take and make the time to learn and then do!

The man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.
There was a time I was in a position of leadership. I used to teach, educate, direct others. Things have changed and times have changed. I am not in a professional role of a leader, but my life can make me a leader without realizing it.
I interact with people, therefore without realizing it someone might look to me as one who could educate them, help them, guide them. That would make me a 'leader' without meaning to be. I am not seeking to direct anyone. I have me to direct and keep focused. I have so much to still learn. Thankfully there are many that I can learn from.
If anything I say, or do, is seen of value by someone, than I am the one who is richer. It helps validate me.

Happiness and sadness don't happen to us--they come from within. The story of your life will be written with or without your help. The next chapter is happening while you read this. Will you wait to see what it says later, or will you help write it?
If my next chapter is being written as I read/type this then I know it will be great. I have put forward today all my energies to enjoy life. I am lving as full as I know how. I am running my heart out, I am running for my life.
I'm not going to sit around and just let things happen, I am grabbing ahold of life and squeezing every bit I can out of it. I wasn't always like this, I sat on the sidelines and just watched.
Thankfully today I am not like that. I have a full ahd happy life, and that is what lies inside....a happy heart.
