My motivator

1 Jul 2023

“You tell me to live each day as if it were my last….’But why the last? ‘ I ask. Why not live each day as if it were the first, a raw astonishment.”

Linda Pastan  (27 May 1932-30 January 2023)


This thought infuses me with energy

makes me realise that 

 I can begin

afresh each day;

an adventure,

discovering something new to enjoy.


Considering this idea

motivates me 

to rise from my bed

to the day ahead.


Fills me with vigour

and a fresh determination 

to start anew

in search of treasure

to enjoy, filled with gratitude.
