I confine myself to the canvas of the day I have. It is not without a frame but I don’t feel constricted. Just the opposite.
I look out on a field of possibilities. Some I will know this day–others maybe never–yet what any other day holds does not occupy my mind.
If there are “best” days they are when I meet the energy of my day, open to its colors sorting themselves. After all the experience is for me.
Stephen King said, “it’s best to have your tools with you. If you don’t, you’re apt to find something you don’t expect and get discouraged.”
If I stray outside the frame of my day, I am blindsided by the unexpected. I have a single tool–equanimity–its versatility never fails. Whatever shape or size I need is at my fingertips.
Equanimity opens me to the colors of the day.
