Perfect Day

The first song on Susan Boyle's Christmas CD, The Gift, is titled, Perfect Day. The words struck me this year as I listened to it over and over while driving in the past couple of weeks. The song describes sharing a day with someone and letting go of problems. The song is about being present and just enjoying the moment.

The chorus is simple and the words are repeated over and over. The simple words are "You're going to reap just what you sow." As I reflect on the last year the words are so true. This is a year I have been stuck. Not in all areas of my life but in certain areas. One of those areas is creating time to be creative. I need the creative process in my life. Being creative nourishes my soul.  

In 2011, many days I said, "I can't." I have had some physical challenges. I have been stuck in the "I can'ts." I can't because my body is not strong enough. I can't paint, write, walk, run or whatever. I can't.

 As I reflect on next year, I know I will reap what I sow in my relationships, my creative side, my work and my physical being. I will not stay in the "can't." I am sorry for those who look to my writings that I have been in stuck.

I want to thank my family for the "perfect days" we enjoyed.
I want to thank my friends for the "perfect days" we shared.
I want to thank my body for the "perfect days" I felt.
I want to thank the universe for the "perfect days" of wonderful work.

In the next few days, I will hold on to the perfect moments and be thankful. Happy Holidays to all and joy for the new year.
