Just Another Day - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Another anticipated day has arrived
Many weeks in the planning and back of mind
But I have learned
Such days are just days
And like the 21,130 before
It will be a yesterday soon enough
No need to be concerned about what I wear
No need to rehearse actions or words
No anxiety. Just wake up

    There are many plannings in mind dwell and we wait to make them materialize. This brings interesting thought and we wait for another day which arrives and we try to fulfill our next ambition. Interesting and wise poem shared....10 (Report) Reply

    But hey! Have you had ice cream today? We sorted out what temperature to keep the condo today.22 daytime 18 at night changes if needed. First time we have used heat panels since moving in in May. I sent in four limericks to Bri for his NOV showcase. I presume he wants new ones not posted before. I sense you need a lift. Check with you tomorrow and hope for the best. (Report) Reply

    I have learned to suppress anxiety about anything. I had a book signing yesterday and my illustrator asked me what I was going to wear (I wear old sweats and T-shirts 99% of the time) what I was going to say, was I nervous, etc... I said, I don't know, I will figure it out when the time comes. The anticipated day came and passed (Successfully) and I didn't waste a moment worrying, and now it is in the past like all other days that could have held anxiousness. Thanks, Wes

    Even good anticipation is a waste of mental energy.: -)

    Another day can always be different than the by gone day. A positive approach may display it's beauty and unique characteristics, though, monotony in life may bring-in pessimism. Hence, pushing it aside welcoming coming new day may usher a new light of joy.
    Thanks for sharing.
