Do you see the sea blue sky with its heavenly white clouds?
Do you hear the songs of the birds in the yard?
Do you feel the breeze brushing against your skin?
Do you feel your lungs fill with oxygen and release?
Do you speak words of gratitude?
On this fresh new day, awaken.
This came to me on my morning run today. I’m sure it was inspired by a poem I wrote many years ago that I’ll be sharing as part of a leadership event next week: Awakening.
