Embracing the "That Which Is Not Yet Known"s.




“Faith is why I'm here today and faith is why I made it through.” ― Jonathan Anthony Burkett
I was struggling just a bit today, as I waited outside the yoga studio. My stomach was in knots, and dreading this class—the same one I had previously, so very much loved.

I had worried myself silly over the most insignificant of things—the "How will I manage today"s and the "I can't wait till it's done."s.

In fact, I had lost myself inside this thought of having been away for so long, that I hadn't stopped to realize just how very far I had come.

And, in the awkward stillness of dread, there is always a most comforting reminder...that my journey here, has only just begun.

As such, I shall greet each new day with great heart and compassion, and fully embrace the 'that which is not yet known's.
Look to this day:
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence.
The bliss of growth,
The glory of action,
The splendor of achievement
Are but experiences of time.

For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision;
And today well-lived, makes
Yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well therefore to this day;
Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn!"
