The Morning Mantra

Sunrise at Acadia National Park, Maine

A new Day is Born!

What do you propose to do with it?

Let us see what Thomas Carlyle has to say about the Blue Day that is born in his poem, “Today”:

So here hath been dawning
Another blue Day:
Think wilt thou let it
Slip useless away.

 

Out of Eternity
This new Day is born;
Into Eternity,
At night, will return.

 

Behold it aforetime
No eye ever did:
So soon it forever
From all eyes is hid.

 

Here hath been dawning
Another blue Day:
Think wilt thou let it
Slip useless away.

Here is my set of chores:

  • Do something
  • Change something
  • Earn something
  • Learn something
  • Write something
  • Attempt something
  • Renew something
  • Jettison something
  • Laugh at something
  • Network with someone

Remember, you are not here for ever.

And you have a duty to yourself.

Wake up and be awesome!
