Sun rises at 7:04 am. What can you do about it?

Waking is on you.

Rising is on you.

Be welcoming the day w/ Mind & Body & Heart.

The Perfect Image of your Identity is presented and remembered for exactly what it is; an Ideal.

Honor the present and your current state.

Act in accord with your present needs and greater ambitions. Balance care for others with self!

Ambitions are not to be feared. Instead, view them as the thrilling adventures that only YOU have the power to bring into the world.

Sun sets at 5:10 pm. Can't do anything about it.

Bring yourself gently to a close, ready to surrender to the night.
