Good Morning and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am happy you decided to stop by and visit with me. Several years ago when I began training in mixed martial arts I heard my Sensei ( instructor) greet people with, “Good Morning”. The time of the day did not matter, as I would hear the familiar greeting, “Good Morning”. For a long time I found myself wanting to remind my Sensei — when I trained in the evening at the martial arts school – that morning was earlier in the day.
One day, while thinking about the, “Good Morning” greeting by my Sensei I had a spiritual awakening. Each day can be filled with new beginnings through out the day. Morning does not have to be the time before noon any longer. You may have periods in your day where you may wish you could start your day over. The good news my friend is that “good morning” can occur at any time during your or my day. We no longer have to be stuck by the longing of how we might have done things, earlier in the day.
Several years ago, actually in 2004 I wrote the below poem. When I pursue progress or excellence I am able to live in the, “Good Morning’s”. I know that more will be revealed with time. I may find myself discouraged during my day, but the good news is that I can start my day over at any time. I do not have to be confined by the time of the day. You may also find yourself discouraged during your day my friend. You may wish you could start your day over and push back the hands of time. To you I would say, “Good Morning!”
Progress not perfection
Bounding forth with color
Brilliant in display of care
Founded in the symphony of wonder
Laden rich with sweetness, as with the honey dew flower
Yet to be displayed in expression
The beauty beheld in splendor
Not interrupted by time
As the blossom of life faintly opens
Exposing the wonderment within
Parched beneath the pedals
Only to be rejuvenated by the creative flow
Pulsing through the heart of experience
Demonstrated daily, crisply stating
For today, I am enough
For more is to be revealed
On the horizon of the morning’s light
