O.H.M.#26 - Another Day by Jeff Foster

By Charlene Lowe

MON MAR 22, 2021

O.H.M. is the acronym for Overtures Honoring Mindfulness, a collection of the written word that speaks to my heart, mind & soul.

Another Day

Stop, for just a moment, and consider this: You've been given another day on this earth.

Let your heart break into a million pieces today, if it wants to. Allow yourself to cry today, if tears come. Feel vulnerable today, if vulnerability visits. Allow all of life to move through you, if it moves today.

A taste. A glance. A breath. The touch of a loved one's hand. The vibrantly alive and familiar upsurge of joy or pain. This is a day of gratitude for the smallest and most "insignificant" of happenings, even for those which seem unworthy of your gratitude.

This is not "just another day". This is your first day, and our last day. Your birth day and your death day. Your only day. Your longed-for day of grace.
