Seventh Post - Options
This morning I was greeted by the sun shimmering through my living room window. The brightness juxtaposed with the cool, crisp temperature, was indeed a cheery way to begin the day. Not quite summer, not yet autumn. I'm facing a weekend with NO plans. No appointments, no commitments. That, of course, leaves me with options. Shall I walk, shop, read, clean, visit, nap, cook, organize? Two consecutive free days seldom come my way and I feel gifted with the opportunity for choice. Enveloped by contentment, peace, and calmness, I am mindful and grateful for all the options I have today. True to my "self", these options come with a profound sense of responsibility - that I not waste this opportunity for aloneness. After a busy week, filled with chatter, this lack of noise is saturating my being. I think I shall sit in silence for a while.
