"Day is done, gone the sun; from the lakes, from the sky...all is well, safely rest..." I don't remember all of these lyrics but I'm finding it's a song I'm wanting to remember. I want to put away any disagreements and any stresses and worries. Not an easy thing to do when you're a habitual worrier like me. I'm having to learn how to put the day and it's bad moments to rest, how to not let it keep me awake all night. I also am in a place now, geographically speaking, where I can daily be reminded of the beauty of the day. There's something in everywhere I've lived that had something so peaceful, I could look and memorize it in my mind. Funny thing, though. Night comes and the old worries pile in. Not a very restful thing.
I watched the Canadian Hockey team win gold, today. Mum, Andy, and I went down to the White Rock waterfront today. Red everywhere. Cheers and whoops in the air. The water was clear with only very small ripples. Forgive me if I sound very new-agey right now, but if I could just focus on that water and the smiles I saw on most people today, my chest would unclench and my neck and head would go down to where it feels light. I've never been a big sports fan, especially hockey, but I felt buoyant and cheerful. These past few weeks, I have met some amazing people, many who I may never meet again, from different countries. It's so easy to lose touch with the good, to be what I'm really not: a pessimist!
Day is done! And it was a wonderful, sunny, and positive day.
