Each day a New Beginning

Through spontaneity we are reformed into ourselves. Freed from handed-down frames of reference,

spontaneity becomes the moment of personal freedom when we are faced with a reality, explore it, and act accordingly.  —Viola Spolin—
Living in the here and the now opens up untold possibilities for new growth. Our inner self is enticed in

new directions when our attention is fully in the present. When our minds are still on last night’s argument or  tomorrow’s board meeting, we wear blinders to the activity at hand. And God, as our teacher and protector,

resides in this experience, in the hearts of these people present. Every single moment has something for us. Maybe a new piece of information. A piece that solves a problem that’s been puzzling us. Perhaps a chance to make a new friend, one who will be there in a time of need. Letting go of yesterday frees us. We need not be burdened. It is gone. Our lives could be eased, so much, if we kept our focus on the experience at hand, where the problems we ponder have their solutions. Always. I will greet today, skipping, smiling, ready for the answers, the truths, the directions meant only for me. The wonders of today will bless me.
