We were born to create on a Monday
Daydream on a Tuesday
Be lazy on a Wednesday
Cry on a Thursday
Laugh on a Friday
Dance on a Saturday
Worship on a Sunday
We were not born to slave every day.
To collect titles, amass fortunes, and live in the daunting future
We were not born to make the rich richer
Live in the ruins of your past failures.
We were not born to kiss somebody’s behind.
Do the things that mean nothing to us.
We were not born to doubt ourselves because it’s easy.
And suppress our gifts because they said so
We were not born to suck it up, and drink your way through Sunday.
Stop denying your true nature of creation
Stop denying your gifts, the space and time to flourish
and discriminating how and when your gifts will manifest
Stop saying yes because it’s safer
And no because it’s scarier
Be the artist you were born to be
Be lazy, do nothing, stare at a wall, go on aimless walks, procrastinate
So when Monday comes you can effortlessly write, dance, sing, draw, paint, speak, guide, touch, love, design, build, solve, breathe.
Something to think about this Monday morning 🙂
