One of my favorite pieces of writing is the Sonia Sanchez haiku…
“Let me wear the day
Well so when it reaches you
You will enjoy it.”
It’s always been powerful to me and I think there are two reasons why.
The first is the idea that we have control over the day.
We can choose to make it excellent, if we want to, that that’s something that’s within our power. The second is that by doing that, by wearing the day well, by living a great day, we are potentially making a gift of it, to someone else.
I don’t know if I always wear the day well, but I am ever more conscious that when I do it’s potentially helping someone else have a great day, too.
