Mike Dooley, creator of Notes from the Universe, suggests that we shift our focus from all that we have to do today to all that we get to do. Think about that for a minute. It's a simple switch-up of words but It instantly changes our attitude from a sense of drudgery to one of possibility. I think of marveling at the stars from our backyard—to what it must be like to look back at Earth from within those stars. A completely different perspective! One in which we wonder what else is out there—to one that reminds us of where we are and what we can do here. We do not want to miss the opportunities of what this day holds.
I am thankful for this day because TODAY I get to do things.
In love and earthlight, Debbie Jenae
