Most of us start our days with a warm mug of coffee or tea. Sometimes I start my day with a mug of warm water with a twist of lemon.
I can't tell you how many times I've rushed through my day, checked off my list, and later fell in bed exhausted and tired. I definitely accomplished what I wanted to. But if I'm honest, I was a little empty.
I let another day go by without being present, fully present.
What does it mean to live in the present? For me, this means that I pay attention to the details. I now eat many meals on my fine china. There's no reason to wait for a holiday. I have morning devotionals that bring meaning and fullness into my day. I peek outside to see the sky and hear the birds. I call my Mom and tell her I love her. I text friends and tell them I love them. I'm enjoying my life. I drink my morning beverage from a beautiful floral mug that makes me smile. Maybe it's wisdom? Whatever it is, I'm grateful.
How do you start your day?
