In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Today Was a Good Day.”
I find this prompt interesting on a day where I had to make a difficult decision. This morning I woke up with no desire to meditate. In fact it was about 7:30am, way past my meditation time.
Moreover, I was able to sit down with a friend and get some unanswered questions resolved. That was causing a bit of a distress and it was so great to obtain clarity there. That, was yet another variable, which helped towards it being a “good” day.
Finally, I had to make the difficult decision to put in a request for a four month leave of absence at my place of employment, for personal and spiritual development, with a possibility of not being accepted as such. In the case that it isn’t, it means that I would have to resign. Because of the emotions of fear attached to that action, this has caused extreme anxiety , which is a feeling I hadn’t associated with in a really long time. In fact, as I am writing these words, it is slowly subsiding. However, as nerve-wracking as it was, it had to be done as now is the time.
So, today marks the beginning of the first day of a new and exciting path that I will embark on. The plans are still developing and in fact will naturally manifest in due time, which I will share as they arise through my social media. As it stands, I will take a short break from Los Angeles, as I meander through Europe and Asia until December.
Today was, in fact, a good day.
Life changes in the instant.
The ordinary instant.
