“Receive today’s gift gratefully,
unwrapping it tenderly and delving into its depths.
As you savor this gift, you find God”
– Sarah Young
Think about it, on any given day, we can either cry over the milk that has spilled that we no longer can drink, or we can mop it up and humbly pour ourselves another glass. There is nothing you can do to change the wasted liquid. You must keep on moving. The way we deal with it depends on our disposition. But I didn’t invent this idea though it is National Inventors Day. I am just stating an obvious fact to describe in a great deal, ways to deal with one crisis after another when discord creeps in.
So here is a thought, maybe we can deal with spilled milk by getting into the grip of music; especially since today is Get Out Your Guitar day. Even better, take a picture of yourself strumming it since it is Selfie Saturday. Looking back at the memories pictures hold, always seems to make me feel good and bring a sense of calm to my world.
What drives the flow of ideas within your mind? What adds up the geometry of the landscape of your emotions? Are you someone who is at ease with forgiving yourself, without reservation, for your falls when you slip? Do you make babbling excuses to reasons why you cannot enjoy the joys in life?
Today is a great day to let relief wash over. Don’t wade in the deep end of sorrows on your own, even if you live alone, feel that you are alone in your stance or are single. They say that Valentine’s Day Weekend, is a time when it brings awareness to being single with February 14th also being known as Single Awareness Day. Today, however, is Satisfied Staying Single Day.
There is nothing wrong with celebrating who you are and treating yourself to a hot stone massage, a sugar scrub spa treatment or a mani/pedi. Who said it was a crime to sit in a movie theatre or at a restaurant without an entourage? Go out there and enjoy and love yourself. If you don’t appreciate your own electricity, who else will? Today is a great day for it; especially since it is Be Electrified Day.
No need to feel sad about not getting the roses that your ex might have given you, might you have been together or feeling miserable because you see all those love commercials and you are not in a love situation. Be careful not to make your own self sick over overthinking on a day like today known as World Day of the Sick. But if you are feeling that way, hey, not a bad day to invite over your other single friends and celebrate being single. I mean, it is National Shut-in Visitation Day, so why not. Or you could visit someone who actually is shut-in for real and draw a smile on that person’s face. You could enjoy in peels of laughter as you celebrate the joys of life together while having meaningful conversations about all the idiot guys who thought they were Greek heroes of some sort, who did not make it into your here and now. No reason to feel vulnerable and alone when you are aware of the individual masterpiece that you are.
And as I conclude on this small measure of fun I was happy to experience with all you reading my post today, I also wanted to acknowledge that it is Songwriter Saturday and what better a day during this Valentine’s Day Weekend, then to share with you a song about a relationship that started in fun, had its strength and then ended with an awareness of who I am not and what I do not deserve, being the industrious soul I am. The song is entitled, “You Got to Go” which is the seventh track on my album, Finally JNote. Here is the link to check it out: https://open.spotify.com/track/7MWLb53uwGGk3kVUsCxkRj
Thankful that you decided to join me in my Saturday Kitchen as I cooked up a new and meaningful post. Only, my kitchen is a notebook and my utensils used were a pen and then the keyboard to type. Hope that you enjoyed my meal of words. Please come back again. This one was baked but the next one will be slow-cooked.
