Today, give everything you have. What you keep you lose forever.
- Steve Prefontaine
Dr. Seuss wrote, "Today is your day, your mountain is waiting, so get on your way."
Get the most from your potential in words and deeds. Push to the limit and go beyond in all actions.
Give something away. Consider giving a possession, a place in line, a parking spot, or a positive thought. Give without expectation. Giving will help you realize your abundance.
What will you write about to give to a weary world?
Describe your finest asset in detail. Which possessions do you hold onto? Write about the feeling of giving them away.
Practice giving by sending smiles to all you meet.
Today, write to discover what giving means. Reach for your possibilities.

"Consider the sunlight. You may say that it is near, yet if you pursue it from world to world you will never catch it. You may say that it is far, yet it is right before your eyes. Chase it and it always eludes you; run from it and it is always there. From this example you can understand how it is with the true nature of all things." Huang-Po
Wander in a natural setting to find ways it reflects your true nature.
Let the process engulf you rather than chasing after a goal.
Take in the colors, aromas, and sounds.
Find a place you've never experienced.
Feel leaves and flower petals. Notice how the breeze moves and tickles your arms and face.
Focus on each moment to remove any mind chatter. Use your breathing to soothe your thoughts.
Elkhart Tolle says, "As soon as you sense that hidden harmony, that sacredness, you realize you are not separate from it. In this way, nature can help you become realigned with the wholeness of life."
You will discover what you need to find.
