Your alarm goes off, in the wash of the new light. Your face takes on another new day… well not entirely new, as you are still to take on the daily routine of capitalism.
You hit the snooze button, until its time to seize the day, not ‘snooze the day.’ A snooze button is a poor substitute for no alarm clock at all.
All my life I have battled the alarm clock, twisting and turning with mounting self-loathing until the shame is finally strong enough to leave be upright.
You say a little prayer, an awkward one at that… more of a mere mental exercise and not a vocal performance. Its all about believing, in things that are true and things that are not true and things where nobody knows if they’re true or not.
You dont think much of the day, its a classical pattern, a tradition, a shadow.
Then you meet the doctor on the highway. Its a once in a lifetime chance, to turn it to good fortune, to escape the dark nothingness of oblivion.
We are well into the 2nd month of the year, you are yet to have a vision board, you were dedicated to keeping fit but that dedication only lasted as short as a lawyer’s beard. Basically, your year is not any different from the past.
You never thought of having a meaningful conversation, meaningful enough to be an awakening and more so with an intellect who is well into their postgraduate doctoral degree.
So, do you have a vision board for this new year? Do you intend on being a better person this year? How is your inner circle? Do you love what you do? Are you doing what you love?
I met a doctor on the highway, that nudged me in the direction of terror and brought me back to safety with a vision so clear that my fears became irrelevant.
Keep your dreams alive, do that which brings love, brings laughter, brings beautiful memories… and above all growth!
