ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTION

I begin each day
knowing I'm asking the right question!
As I focus on my blank-slate-day,
I ask myself: “what is the best thing
that will happen today"
I think about the day's fledgling,
Incomplete “to do” list
as I forage among the vague awakening
crumbs of my breakfast and my thoughts.
I grapple with my answers,
mindful of what I must accomplish today,
and what I really want to do, instead!
At the end of my day, I again find myself
asking the right question about my day as I fall asleep;
grading my day as if it were an assignment:
what was the best thing that happened today?
And, I fall asleep smiling at my answer—
my happy life!
