A few days ago I woke up and decided that I had enough in my mind. There were things that bothered me, things that worried me, things that hurt me and things I was afraid of all swirling around in my head. There were people in there, decisions I made, disappointment, and the anxiety of things I want to do. As though they were magic words, I whispered tabula rasa.
I left the house approaching the day with curiosity, leaving my story behind, an empty page. With no expectations, I stayed open to direction, to others, to what the day brought. I asked for nothing, yet I got everything. The emptiness I decided on early in the morning allowed me to perceive things differently, to see things and people more honestly–without an agenda–and to write a new story for myself.
Today is a good day to wipe your slate clean and begin anew by releasing your mental binds. Today, every decision can be new, every thought can be different. Today, we can begin again.
