TGIF type of sunny and hot
Something interesting happened today. As I was in the very quiet and very full morning elevator ride, one of the people got off before me, and very cheerfully and laughingly said "have a great day everyone" as she exited.
Interesting because I don't think half the people in the elevator "heard her" or if they did, not one reacted. Of those that might have heard her, there was not one smile that cracked a face. Except for one, that smiled and said, "you too".
And after saying "you too" I realized that that was the wake up call that I needed to get out of my funk and live the present moment.
Some mornings it's hard to get up and at 'em. Some mornings are easier than others. And really I have nothing to complain about but some mornings there's just more energy in this little body of mine. Today is a let me sleep, leave me alone, I don't want to go to work, i don't want to think, engage or parlay type of morning, which kind of sucks, but since I'm a firm believer in Thoughts becoming Things, I really want to end my day with a resounding "yehaaa, what a fantastic and Wunderschön type of day today was !!
And it started this morning with a stranger wishing us all "a great day" and made me vow that in my next contact with someone I would cheerfully wish them "a Wunderschön day" too !!
I think that the above reflects one of the differences between life on land and the recent month of nomadic liveaboard cruising lifestyle we experienced where people were in slow motion, smiling, laughing, interacting, helping...
Have a Wunderschön type of day everyone, or if it's not happening, then MAKE IT SO !
PS: Weather looks promising, so a sailabout might be in the works tonight :) Now that's a Wunderschön thing !!
