Blissful. That's how I would describe my yesterday. It unfolded beautifully and started with a small risk. I interrupted a dream about three donkeys which somehow seemed quite prophetic at the time, to get up at 6:15 and drive down to the Marina for early morning tai chi. A risk because I wouldn't necessarily know anyone or know some of the forms. I arrived in the middle of warm ups and the woman I stood next to gave me a bright smile. All was good. What a thoroughly refreshing way to start the day. I love the form using fans and keep promising myself that I'll learn it.
After, I walked around the Marina, so pretty in the soft morning light. I had lunch with a good friend and we walked around some of the gift stores in the Bay Street area. That evening, my step-daughter Carole invited Rob and i over for dinner as a thank you for helping to move a fridge into her basement. So we had delicious home-made quesadillas and visited with her and our 2 1/2 year old grand son Ollie. Later Dad called to say that he had safely arrived home from visiting his lady friend Sandy at Lake Shebandowan, a good hour's drive away. One of those deep peace in the heart kind of days which started with a small risk, a tiptoe out of my comfort zone.
What little risk can you take today or promise yourself to take tomorrow?
As a quick aside, I wanted to add the 'then' part to this post, an inscription from a dear friend in a book she gave me as an emigration pressie when I left England for Canada. I think I mentioned it in a previous post but have since found the book. I had forgotten the personal note she added to the quote:
Have a wonderful life.
My wish for you today: do what little steps you need to do so you can embrace your wonderful life.
