Ripples #824: New Seeds!
Mar 9, 2015
It’s good to leave each day behind,
like flowing water, free of sadness.
Yesterday is gone and its tale told.
Today new seeds are growing.
-Rumi, shared by David in Boston, MA
Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities have crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day;
you shall begin it serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson, shared by Lauren in Grosse Pointe, MI
Now that we’ve moved our clocks forward an hour and a permanent thaw is (hopefully) just around the river bend, I think we should embrace the momentum of springing forward!
Each day brings a few more minutes of light that we can use to plant new seeds that will ensure a bountiful future. That could mean some adding some small yet significant actions to start a new project at work/school, or perhaps a minor upgrade in your exercise or nutrition patterns that will help you enjoy the summer
And how about we strive to let any poopy stuff that happened yesterday be the fertilizer for all the possibilities that we are planting for tomorrow. Are you in?
