Do you drive the same way to work every day?
Do you zone out as you plan your schedule,
the traffic lulling you into the deepest crevices of your mind?
Do you replay the events of your morning,
imagine new ones for your afternoon,
then quiver right down to your core when you remember something
you were supposed to do?
Does your body give you messages?
Like the neck ache,
Like the back ache,
Like the belly ache that just wont go away
no matter what you cut out of your diet.
Don’t think about it, says your mind.
I’m tired, says your heart.
Suck it up and drive on, says your friend. Its called life.
But it isn’t life.
Not unless you insist it to be so.

My Wednesday Wish for you?
Drive a new way to work...
See with fresh eyes.
Look for magic.
Look for beauty.
Look for the gifts that exist for you,
A lone weed defying odds
from a crack
in the sidewalk.
A woman rocking out
in her car
with a happy smile
upon her face.
Words on the side of a truck…
meant for you,
an answer to what you were wondering about.
Expect a new day,
a day unlike any other,
a day with beauty
waiting for you,
waiting to make you smile.
...then watch your Wednesday turn into what you believed it could be
