Cooking Show

It's another one of those mornings when I know I want to write, but nothing comes to mind.  I have no personal agenda for the day.  There is no problem that needs a solution.  There is no project that needs planning.  The work day is ahead of me, but there's nothing unusual or pressing there either.  This day is a blank slate.


That's the beauty of it.  This kind of day reminds me that I have an infinite number of thoughts to think, actions to take, decisions to make, and realities to create.   On a day like today I can choose to focus on the things and people that bring me joy.  I can choose to focus on the things that cause me pain.  I can choose to start working on something I've always wanted to do.  I can choose to finish up things I have in progress.  I can choose to drift through the day and see where it takes me. 

What I'm choosing today is gratitude and awareness.  I am so thankful for this day without pressure to achieve or accomplish.  I am so thankful for the opportunity to be aware of my surroundings and of my life.  I make a promise to myself to be an observer today.  I will notice everything.  I will not trudge my way through this day, doing mundane tasks with my head down and my thoughts in a fog.  I will look up and see the value in what I do and the beauty in the people I encounter.

I will notice how many times I have the choice of what to do, what to think, how to react, which way to turn, and how to act.  In each of those times I will notice that there are more choices than the ones I usually make.  I will watch for new and different paths I might take. 

Instead of preparing the main meal or sitting down to feast, today I am watching the cooking show for new recipes and different cooking techniques.  Today I am an observer, but I am not passive.  I walk through this day in grateful awareness, gathering information and insight.
