So this is what #46 feels like.
Is it odd it feels the same as 20 did?
Today, more than usual I am turning myself inward
Today, more than usual I am thinking about cherished memories
Today, I am embracing the reality of death that sits with us all
Today, I understand what matters
Today, I have no desire for a gift
Today, I have the greatest gift I could ever wish for in a Mindset that embraces my role
My role I signed up for
My role to embrace tension
My role to Care
My role to do the right thing even when its in private
My role to try daily to exhibit true empathy
Today I look into my daughters eyes and understand what I must provide
Today I embrace my eventual end happily with a simple approach that the direction is never to scramble at the perceived end to be a good man but as the stoics believed
“Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.”
I say to my dear friends and family to today, if inclined to do or say a nice thing to me instead do something nice for someone, anyone in your day instead.
Grateful beyond words
