Day 86

Day 86 of 100 intentional, reflective steps.

The day after. The day after Christmas. The day after the death. The day after the diagnosis. The day after.

It is tempting to live life in a backwards motion, acknowledging the “day after” as a downward slide, toward something less than the day before. What if we flipped the table, changed the program and looked at each day as “the day before”? The day before the wedding. The day before the birth. The day before I start school. The day before our trip. Living life in anticipation focuses on the possibilities, potential and hope rather than living life in the freakin’ rearview mirror!
