Emerson – The New Day is too dear….

Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.

Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.  Ralph Waldo Emerson

Please see my new Web Site: I welcome guest writers and bloggers on yoga, creativity and facing life’s challenges.

In January, “New Years Evolution” – offers yoga, creativity and reinvention in the serenity of the North Georgia mountains. New Year’s resolutions are notoriously temporary.

We will question why we return to “comfort” zones, rather than face and enact change. We will challenge pre-conceived negative ideas of body image, ageism and limitations that continue to sabotage us.  We will learn to let go of what others think, as we discover and  follow our own inner guidance. Finally, through symbolic ritual, we let go of our stories, our pasts, and begin to forgive ourselves and others. We evolve into the New Year. 

Jessica Handler, author of “Invisible Sisters” and “Braving the Fire” available at your favorite bookstore will offer a Saturday workshop on writing through grief, loss and trauma.  I hope you will join us.
