The Best Day of my Life initiative – I didn’t expect that

Hello everybody, today was the best day of my life. Now normally I write that and then I poetically wax lyrical in beautiful detail about why it is that this day was in fact the best day of my life. But living everyday as if it is the best day of your life isn’t all about looking backwards. Oh no, of course not. How could it possibly be?

It’s about living in the now of course.

But it’s also about looking forward to the future.

Well it’s mostly about living in the now, and realizing that every thing that has ever happened in your life, every thought, action, idea, journey, experiment, hope, gift, smell, they have all led to this exact moment, so why not treat it as if it is the best moment of your life. It ALL led to this.

But it’s also about looking forward to the future.

Because that’s what I thought would be fun to write about right now.

Nope I can’t do it. I am stuck in the rabbit hole of thinking of the now. I keep trying to let my brain go out on one of it’s flights of fancy, as inspired by my experiences of the best day of my life, yet not necessarily literally about that, but right now I am stuck on right now and right now I am writing here on my laptop.

Let’s explore Dave, what are you trying to avoid. Let’s talk it out:

-       I feel like I should go to bed soon, not that I am tired, or have any particular reason why I should be going to bed.
-       I need to brush my teeth.
-       I wish for a beverage.
-       I’m upset at myself, or frustrated at least, that this is the direction my blog is going in today.
-       I am upset with myself for being upset with myself over this.
-       Just be real Dave, it’s ok.
-       Yes, but I want to be creative, I love flights of fantasy. That’s joy to me. That’s why this stuff is the best day of my life. I don’t want to be real.
-       It’s ok David, it is.
-       Yeah, but, it’s not what I wanted to do today.
-       It doesn’t matter, be real, it’s good for you.
-       I shouldn’t have put this in point form. I should have made this dialogue.
-       Let it go.
-       No.
-       Yes.
-       Really?
-       It’s ok, it’s ok.
-       It doesn’t feel ok.
-       If it’s not ok then how can it be the best day of your life?
-       You sneaky motherfucker.
-       Is it ‘flight of fancy’ or ‘flight of fantasy’?

-       It’s whatever you want it to be. Everything is.
