Spending the Days


Spending the Days

I recently saw this quote:

How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. ~ Annie Dillard

Oh, geez, I thought. Really?

My immediate thought: I spend my days doing things I don’t want to do so someday I can do what I want.

Is this really my life?

And, then, I really started thinking about how I spend my days.

Oh, boy.

It seems I spend my days in too much anger about situations I can’t change; in too much resentment about my perception that life is unfair; in too much angst about what I believe I don’t have.

Oh, that’s not how I want to live my life—in anger, resentment and angst.

So, starting today, I am going to spend my days in gratitude, in faith, and in laughter.

And, you?
