Wake me when you’ve had a revolution in your heart.

I have a t shirt with this quote on it. I really love these words all together. They resonate with me in so many ways. There is this implication of toe tapping…this is me. I do not love this about myself, but sometimes I am judgemental, and frustrated with the timeline of someone’s growth and development. I would like to clarify that I am MUCH more demanding of myself than anyone else, but you know…thou shalt not judge and all that….I am stuck on the not judging chapter one of Deepak Chopra’s Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. I refuse to read the other chapters until I get this one down. I digress…really?!
Around this time of year, I also much prefer the word revolution to resolution. Being resolved to do something just doesn’t seem as powerful as a REVOLUTION!!
Once a year is really not working for me either…I have way too much work to do to set things straight once a year. This is a daily conversation for me who can become easily distracted.
Thank you for the gift of this day. How might I use this gift of a day for my purpose here.
Every day is different, lest you think this is lofty and wise or even “Mother Theresa ish” at all. Not so. Some days I do grapple with the woes of the world. Some days I really need to remember to sing and dance with BB. I need to sit and think and explore every nook and cranny of my crazy self and see what all it is I am supposed to be giving a whirl. This takes a lot of time and attention.
I have found it is easier to focus on such challenging things when my mind is not sluggish from sugar.

Perhaps I should give up sugar for 2010;)
May your joy surpass your tears.
I wish you the courage to walk the path laid out before you – listening.
Peace out.
