Yes, I will try to be. Because I believe that not being is arrogant. ~Antonio Porchia, Voces, 1943, translated from Spanish by W.S. Merwin
Today is a good day to just be. This means kick back, take a walk, prop our feet up, watch the footballs games, or the sappy “girly” movie that makes us laugh , cry. Steel Magnolias if we’ve never seen it or if we have is a good one. Of course, in between calls, I’ll be watching Titans, new coach, new quarterback, which will also make us laugh, make us cry. The thing here is to feel. To allow ourselves the chance to open up, yell, scream, cuss, roar with laughter. To be quiet in the meadow just watching the deer graze, barely breathing so gentle mother with calf doesn’t bolt away. We can smile as hawk flies overhead, looking down at garden snake slithering just a foot away. We can jump back a little when first seeing his tongue flip out but we don’t have to be afraid because he won’t hurt us. In doing this we learn to trust that even situations where we might be afraid that we can keep walking ahead on our path, just stepping over the fearful things in the way. To allow ourselves to feel every emotion , to give ourselves the chance to be who we are, is not arrogant, is not selfish. We open up our heart, our minds, our spirits, our chakras when we allow our feelings to soar, to fly, to just be. Of course, this doesn’t mean take it out on others around us. Take the good feelings, share them. Take the ones we want to keep, that make us feel good about ourselves, share them, hold them close, let the others go to the universe. Only the powers that be can solve these problems. When we open ourselves, others around us open up as well. We are not arrogant, we are alive, so today just be!!
Today’s task: Spend one day changing everything we think about to one positive thing about it. Dig deep if we have to to find a positive in this negative.

What a week I’ve had. Spirit has lead me off to taking care of parents, grandsons, Bob,Bets this week quite a bit. In doing so, we are allowed to feel all emotions, being glad that each of these are in our lives. As keen has had some tech issues, keen is working on these issues diligently. Be sure to keep trying to get through to whichever adviser because they are consistently working to fix the problems. Each fire put out, will get it closer to running smoothly.
