It is one of those occasions. One of those mornings that doesn’t happen very often but when it does, I dance for joy.
I slept in.
Yup. Me. The one who awakens at 5:15am, without an alarm clock jarring me out of my slumbers, everyday — including on weekends. The one who needs 6 hours sleep every night. Who cannot get back to sleep once she awakens, even if she didn’t get to bed until after midnight.
That one. That me.
I slept in.
Which also means, I’m running late. Not a lot of time to write. No time to read. No time even to meditate — but I did it anyway because that’s an essential. My morning meditation is what sets my day up right. It’s what moves me into the day open-hearted and peaceful minded.
I just made it shorter than normal.
So, as I am late, and as I need to get running, right now, this post is short.
Which means, in lieu of my words, I’m sharing a video I believe worth watching.
I shared this one several years ago on my Recover Your Joy blog — it is one of my favourites.
From TED.com — Conductor Benjamin Zander has two infectious passions: classical music, and helping us realize our untapped love for it — and by extension, our untapped love for all new possibilities, new experiences, new connections. (Recorded March 2008 in Monterey, California. Duration: 20:46.)
