I really wanted to stay in bed this morning.   After a string of unusually hot and still days, our wonderful tradewinds have returned.   It was nice and cool, as I lay under my sheet, lost in a dream.   But a lone seagull’s call kept piercing my silence, almost like I’d put my alarm on snooze.

“Today, many will break through the barriers of the past by looking at the blessings of the present.   Why not you?”
~  Steve Maraboli

Happy Monday friends.   It’s the first Monday of a new month, and I wanted to share another message about re-birth which I ran across this weekend.   It’s from a yogic perspective.   And it’s a perfect reminder that we have a choice.   In the blessing of the present moment,  when we remain in mindfulness, right here and now, we can make the choice as to the person that we want to be, or not to be, the things we wish to do, or not to do, the dreams we pursue or don’t pursue.
