Being New

"Here it comes again: another start of another day.  What a reprieve!  You have incalculable chances to change the ending.  To change your attitude.  To be the new you.  Whether you know it or not, you already are the new you.  Forget what you think, lose the foregone conclusion, and just be new."  Karen Maezen Miller (From her book Momma Zen)

It's a brand new day.  

My little ones are home again today (conferences) and I am going to do my absolute best to be with them.  I'm going to do my absolute best to be with whatever is right in front of me, to let each moment be new.

The sun is shining!  The birds are chirping like crazy.  My heart is full.

Here's to forgetting what we think and being new in every single moment--each new one gives us another precious chance.


  1. AMEN to that!

    Ho and y-e-s! Here's to embracing each moment as the clean, pure, beautiful gift that it is. It hurts too much to keep seeing through worn out lenses tainted with fear.

    Do tell us what wonderful things your vision brought to you today xxx

  2. oh!!
    i was on a retreat this weekend...
    a place run by wonderful nuns!
    & my path crossed with one early yesterday
    morning & she expressed to me how glad she was
    that she was able to wake up to another day
    & be alive again!
    YES to new! xox

  3. I am waking up to a brand new day right now and am so grateful to be alive! Enjoy your day with the girls. Love to you!

  4. Carpe Diem .. Seize the day. Look forward to reading all about it. Love Nige XXX
