“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few.” *
What are the things you see so often that you no longer realize how awesome they are?
The morning’s birdsong? The new moon dancing with Venus in the evening sky? The love of your life, snoring by your side? The dog wanting to go for a walk?
Imagine that this is the first time you are experiencing the bits and moments that make up your day. Because in truth, this is the first and only time it will be exactly as it is right now. It is also the last time it will be precisely like this.
In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities. Here’s to a week filled with a whole new world!
Happy first week of June, everyone!
