Just what I needed

Today, like every other day,
we may wake up empty or frightened.
Don't open the door to the study and begin reading.
Take down a musical instrument.
Let the beauty we love be what we do.
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
~Jalal ad-Din Rumi

Maybe I should just leave it at that. Toilet overflowed twice last night (leaked down into the basement). But, I hated (such a strong word) the bathroom carpet and now it's gone!!! I overslept this morning, my computer blue screened on start up, and my head and neck hurt. Then, let's see, it was Bible school day so that was chaotic, plus on Tuesdays I sub during the lunch hour, so things at work were pretty crazy. But, here's what I found. People ask when you get to work "how are you" and I found myself saying either "fine" or even "good". Well, I thought to myself, I guess I'm pretty good. I could be better, but then again, it could be worse. That helped me keep a more positive outlook. But my head and neck still hurt, and I was tired (whine, whine). Then I got this quote in an e-mail. I get daily inspirations from inspiration peak. It was just what I needed today. I hope I wake up tomorrow and do just that, at least in my head and heart. Finding new ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
