I woke to sunlight creeping through my bathroom windows.
Unusual, since the last month has been grey days of coastal overcast. More unusual since June in our parts is called June Gloom.
It dawned on me (no pun intended) we are quickly approaching the middle of the year. Almost half of 2015 is gone.
Yikes. This got me thinking.
Did I follow my intentions for the year? Did I complete what I intended to complete or experience?
That attitude created pressure, anxiousness.
Bummer feelings for the first minutes of a new day. Especially since sunlight shone through my windows.
I took a deep breath and thanked God for a beautiful sunlit morning.
The oxygen and gratitude flipped my attitude.
More important, did I enjoy the past six months. Did I find pleasure in my family, friends, work and new experiences?
I answered yes and felt invigorated.
If you can answer yes to the last question, all is well.
If you answer no, the good news is half of 2015 is ahead.
To quote a Mexican dicho:
“El que adelante no mira, atrás se queda
He who does not look ahead falls behind.”
There is still time.
