I had a friend who kept a calendar on her desk. As each day passed she would cross it off. She would use a big black magic marker and put a big X through each day. It now occurs to me that we should not be crossing days off with monstrous X’s. We should be highlighting our past. We should not live with regrets, we should celebrate experience. Our past is the perfect combination of circumstances that brought us to where we are today. Celebrate each day of the past, present, and future. Highlight to make things brighter.
