a cat at my butt a cat at my head,
I start off the day by taking it in:
warmth and connection and living in skin.
There's much to appreciate,
so much to enjoy.
Happiness I create
when this I employ.
It doesn't work to just get up and go
when going's not grounded in that which I know:
sweet joy and freedom are why I am here.
Attending to that has me get up and cheer!
Consider this your divine invitation
to savor what's sweet upon your awaking.
When you daily set joy as your intention,
you'll find happiness is of your own making.

Yep, I did make that up just now because in my previous blog post, I said I'd offer more recommendations for feeling good in your life even if/when presented with uncertainties or unpleasantries and this poem felt like a fun way to offer one. There's so much power in simply making the choice that today and today and today are here for me to enjoy and continuing to turn my attention to that which I do enjoy again and again and again! Off I go to enjoy another today!
