It is the start of a new day at the start of a new week. There is a fresh snow to make everything appear bright and clean.
As I look out on the freshness of it all the opportunities are overwhelming. Of all the things I could do with all of this freshness… Where should I start? How do I prioritize? My mind races from the moment to the day to the week and beyond. Read a book? Shovel the snow? Plan my week?
As I fixate on the options and possibilities I realize I want to pace myself and be thoughtful in my actions: some good music, a cup of coffee, a conversation with my daughter. Al good and important things. Am I pacing myself or just getting distracted?
A bit less analysis and a bit more savoring the time I have will put things into perspective.
