I really want to say something significant about Martin Luther King, Jr. right now. He was an exceptional man. I wish I had more to offer, but everything has been already been said and said in much better words than what you just read.
Selfishly, I’d like to thank Dr. Martin Luther King for giving me the day off of work, which was a happy surprise. I didn’t realized I had today off until I tried to schedule a meeting for today late last week, and my co-worker told me he wouldn’t be able to do that because we didn’t have work. Doh!
So now I have this day when I intend to read book(s) and research articles, watch TV, do a little yoga, bake, make some phone calls, and clean! All things that make me feel good. Consider it my first day devoted to my 2013 goal.
Already remodeled my apartment to create nice little yoga nook.
I have also been reminded recently that when dealing with complicated life issues, the best process for me is to seek the advice of the many wise people I know, ponder their words, pick the ideas that make the most sense to me, and follow my own path. Sometimes this means going against what I have been advised to do. It also means doing things that other people may see as mistakes.
I believe that one of the greatest gifts we can give each other is respect for autonomy without judgment.
I am really accepting of life at this moment. A lot of things are in flux, but I know that no matter what I will [eventually] be okay.
Have a happy Monday everyone, and remember that there is beauty in your presence!
