Sees The Day

Today’s Lesson: A day is about more than what happened. It’s about what you noticed happen.

Yesterday was a near perfect day, if you ask me. It almost wasn’t until I noticed it was. Here is the breakdown:

What we planned to do

Wake up early, look at kayaks, go to the beach, grab lunch, go for a long bike ride (bicycles), yoga, watch a bunch of episodes of Daredevil on Netflix.

What we actually did

Slept in with all the windows open, woke up and cuddled for a while we watched the day wake, made lattes and had breakfast, took a nap, made lunch and ate it on the veranda. Headed to Honeymoon Island about 1:30 where we rode our bikes to a walking trail and then hoofed it, enjoying the sights of tortoises, baby and grown-up ospreys, pelicans, nesting horned owls, and quite a variety of lizards along the way. Finally ended up at the beach around 4 and played in the ocean for a few hours–the water was perfectly warm and clear as green glass. Then we came home, made dinner, showered, and watched 2 episodes of Daredevil.

 

The funny thing is, at the end of the day we almost missed the miracle of the day itself. We were bummed we didn’t do yoga or ride our bikes as long as we meant to!

Every day has lessons and miracles in it (trust me on that–in 53 days, I will have written a lesson a day for an entire year!). A person who will truly “seize the day” starts first by becoming a person who¬†“sees the day”.

People are made of many things, but only a few things define a person. For me, those things are Philosophy, Leadership, and Health. I help independently owned and ethically run businesses break through communication obstacles and challenge conventional thinking. Sometimes that means delivering insightful marketing content; sometimes it means having tough but compassionate conversations. All the time, it means communicating and building relationships with honesty and integrity. I am a vegan, an individualist, and occasionally a man willing to risk everything to reach a goal. I am known for being uncompromising in my values, and for being someone who dares to own his own life.
