There's something about not sleeping well (see: CRAZY WIND) and working long days (we have a great concert scheduled tonight, but it does mean a long day. Well, except that I'll be taking a short gym break somewhere in there - that should help with the energy management, right?) that makes the day seem endless before it even begins. I get cold and tired and cranky just thinking about it. I'm not much of a church girl anymore, but I am a sucker for inspiration, and so a few months ago I signed up for the daily email from The Universe. (The universe has email! Who knew!) Here's today's email:
As if the most accomplished among you didn't have their own piercing doubts, fears, and worries; didn't have spells when they believed they were inadequate, lost, and dependent; hadn't at times felt downhearted, discouraged, and all alone in the world.
Yet still, Rahree you know their names. It's like time and space were made for you,
So there it is - my personal pep talk for the day. A thought that's not all about my next cup of coffee, or how much I'm dreading taking this dog out for his walk in the - wait for it - CRAZY WIND. And, when I see these emails, I get a little perspective, and start thinking about how good things are. Like the fact that I just got approval for booking my very first chamber music season! And that I'll be trekking to Brooklyn for some girl time next weekend!
Dog: still unwalked. Time to remedy that!
