There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. Martha Graham
I woke after a restless night and part of me was ready to let that fact color my day. It didn’t take long before I realized that I had choice. I could go with tired, listless, frustrated and scared that I’ll never sleep well again.
Or I could remember that I have been given this day, one more series of moments (and I can’t know how many!) filled with life energy. It is up to me to choose how I will invest this very precious resource. No one else can do that for me. And the energy that is mine to invest in this now moment is forever gone once the moment has passed.
What choices will you make today?
For what will you exchange your valuable life energy?
