AYD - Feb 8, 2013 - Only the Strong ...

Today is a new day.  We focus on that here.  We share it, we try to establish it as an automatic feeling to be greeted and invited to share our table, and we attempt to adopt is as a self leading philosophy for our betterment, and those who witness it within us.  Yesterday is gone, today is a new product, and we owe it to the dawn to bring it forward for our partnered investment.

Today I thank a friend for some kind and encouraging words yesterday, when disillusion was asking me out for a date.

There are times when your patience, your good self, and your "I know better" will run thin.  There are times when others may slowly draw out of you, the Darkside that we pride ourselves in defeating as we reach for personal success.  Your reactions might be testy.  You may struggle with some guilt over debating thoughts and anger.  Overall, it may feel like the clouds are rolling in, and for as far as you can see, there is a storm brewing. 

You are drained on the quality of you.

I could smell it in the air.  The hallways at work felt constricted.  The "good mornings" felt rehearsed and robotic.   Success was measured on how long I could avoid the difficult people that just don't get it.

I fear I may have started becoming one of those people for others.

And then, I was thankful.  Thankful for a few common sense words, a few more of strong encouragement, all wrapped up in a non-profit gesture of, "Hey, here is a thought....".

Only the Strong...are willing to take a breath when they feel the weakest.  Willing to accept the helping hand in whatever form it is offered. 

Yesterday I was focussed on the storm and all the uncomfortable feelings that come with cold winds.
This morning, the air is still.  And I hear a voice...."Here is a thought...."

Give thanks to good friends for knowing what you need to hear.
Give your attention to this new day.

I wish for you, great opportunity today and this weekend.

Good morning.

Husband, Daddy, Author...and Thankful for a fresh morning.
