When our heads finally hit the pillows tonight,
let’s think about the people we love, those nearby, those far away
and those who are sweet memories that will linger forever.
Remembering each with a smile is a way to count your blessings
and invite sleep to gently find you.
“It is time to float on the waters of the night.
Time to wrap my arms around this book
and press it to my chest, life preserver
in a sea of unremarkable men and women,
anonymous faces on the street,
a hundred thousand unalphabetized things,
a million forgotten hours.”
“Instead of figuring out who to blame,
figure out how to get yourself to a better place.
It’s not only more productive, it feels a lot better too.
Now, how about one small step in that positive direction before you call it a day?”
