The Right Day

"There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done.  One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow.  Today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live."  - Dali Lama

A friend had sent me this quote this morning, it was a gentle reminder.  I had allowed myself to get a little down this week.......first the incident with Ingrid and the deer (Ingrid is still at the car doc's) and then of course it was treatment week.  It can be discouraging when it takes most of your energy to shower and dress.  The art of doing nothing is so difficult for me........but, after the shower and getting dressed, Rick took me to one of my favorite restaurants for lunch......and then I came home and slept for most of the afternoon.  I am learning to practice "my art of doing nothing."

Today is the right day, it is really all we have......yesterday, is just a memory and tomorrow may never is the right day to live.  I should have that tattooed on my forehead!  Actually, when I have the energy, I am going to paint our bedroom.......I think I might paint "today is the right day"  over the door.......I'll take pictures!

Today was a rather strange weather day........the wind blew fiercely from the west......and blew up a dust storm!  Yep, dust from the mid-west......the sky was blue,  but you could see the clouds of dust blowing across the trees and the horizon.  I wanted to sit outside, but the lungs reminded me that today was not the right day to inhale dust. 

I hope today has been the right for you, that it has been a day to love and live.  I also suggest that today would be the right day for a news fast......I know that may appall some of you, but with all the negative political spam right now, it would do your heart ( the physical and the emotional one) good.
Take a break, look for beauty, and let today be the right love and live.
