Today's Quotation:

I have never been bored an hour in my life.  I get up every morning wondering what new strange glamorous thing is going to happen and it happens at fairly regular intervals.  Lady Luck has been good to me and I fancy she has been good to everyone.  Only some people are dour, and when she gives them the come hither with her eyes, they look down or turn away and lift an eyebrow.  But me, I give her the wink and away we go.

William Allen White

Today's Meditation:

I can truly identify with William here-- there's far too much to do in this world to be bored.  There are places to go, people to see, music to listen to, programs to watch, things to do, naps to take, books and magazines to read-- in short, there's tons to do, all the time, in so many different ways!

The only times I think I was truly bored were in the Army, and that was because I was forced to be in situations with nothing to do, for long periods of time.  And if we tried to find things to do, we got in trouble.  I tried to use my imagination to fill the hours then, and it worked for the most part.

What new strange and wonderful things will come about in your life today?  What will you do when it comes?  Will you even recognize it?  Will you do something with it, or will you let it slide right past you into yesterday, never taking advantage of the possibilities that it offered?

Do you turn away when life says "Come on, let's go!"?  Do you think "That's not for me, for I've never done that before!"?  Or do you say, "Okay, life-- show me what you mean, and let's go!"?  If you do, you know what it means to let life take you where it will, to let it lead you in ways that you never could have imagined yourself.

Life has been good to you and me.  And if we trust her, no matter what we call her, she will continue to be better to us than we ever could have imagined.  Run with her, play with her, let her keep you company, and take from her all those wonderful things that she keeps trying to give to you.

Questions to ponder:

1.  When was the last time you turned away from something that life offered?  Was it worth it?

2.  Can you think of an entire day when you're sure that nothing new or different came your way?

3.  How do you react to things that are new and different in your life?

For further thought:

As yesterday is history, and tomorrow may never come, I have resolved from this day on, I will do all the business I can honestly, have all the fun I can reasonably, do all the good I can willingly, and save my digestion by thinking pleasantly.

Robert Louis Stevenson
