Always in Love with the Sky

No Matter the Weather - JWTBlog FB Post

There are people who are always in love with the sky. No matter the weather. No matter the season. No matter the time of day.

They see beauty in every sunset. In every rainstorm. In every passing cloud.

In starry nights. Rainbows. The noonday sun. Falling snow. Blue clear skies. Sunrises. Even thundershowers.

They are those special individuals who truly welcome and live in each moment. Those whose hearts beat with gratitude. Whose minds are open and accepting. Whose spirits are compassionate and empathetic. And whose eyes see the splendor and awe in everything.

They are those who teach by example. Who find something to like and appreciate in everything. And seemingly everyone.

They show us what is possible when we see the good, the beauty, the possibilities in everything and everybody.

The way they look at, embrace, and appreciate the moods, colors, and behavior of the sky are models for loving. For loving others. And for loving ourselves.

We should all be so fortunate to find someone who will love us the same way. Just as we would love them. No matter the weather. No matter the season. No matter the time of day. We would always be in love with their sky.

Love like that,

Jay

On Monday, January 30th, five days before the next biggest game of his life, #12, TB, the 🐐, 4-time Super Bowl champion and 3-time Super Bowl MVP of the New England Patriots, Tom Terrific, arguably the best quarterback to ever play professional football, revealed raw, sweet, and tender emotion at a pre Super Bowl LI presser as he responded to a reporter asking him who he considered to be his personal hero.

“That’s a great question.”

Filling Our Time with What Matters Most

We can fill our time and our lives with a lot of things. From noise to meaning and everything in between.

But we only have so much capacity, so much time. And although life can be very forgiving, time is not. The sand in the hourglass of life never takes a holiday and the amount of sand that we have left at any given moment is never within our view.

As Keith Urban sings, “days go by.” Games are played. Seasons change. Relationships begin and end. Dreams and memories both fade and are made anew. People die. And the hands on the clock never stop moving clockwise.

So we must fill our days and nights the best we can by doing what matters most. To us. Individually.

Filling ourselves full of that which most satisfies our minds, our hearts, and our spirits. Immersing ourselves in and with the people, activities, and experiences that we most enjoy. Living on purpose.

Filling our time with what matters most. While we still have time to fill.

Leave no doubt,

Jay
