Opportunity 

Everyday is a new opportunity.

Somedays begin with boundless energy

others with a tired 

but willful 

sense of purpose.

Today the rain falls softly outside my window,

Two twelve hour days are now behind me,

I am ready to create a slower pace.

Today is my son’s birthday and a luncheon with the Govenor.

Today is an opportunity.

An opportunity to rise above,

To be loving,

And create memories.

Today is an opportunity for balance,

less coffee and more water,

slower footsteps

and less meetings.

Today is an opportunity 

just like everyday

to share my love with the world. 

And so, 

I rise

with intention

and embrace 

the opportunity of today.
