In our work we see team members injured on and off the job.
And yet we passed one yesterday without a greeting.
We see the effects of not engaging in regular physical activity.
And yet we’ve slipped in our own routines.
We know that we should schedule a class to finish that degree.
And yet we spin stories that we’re too busy.
We realize how lucky we are to have such special work.
And yet we count the days until this work is over.
We acknowledge that when people die, they can’t take it with them.
And yet we scour Amazon for the latest Prime object.
We feel that it isn’t healthy to eat processed food, bleached flour and sugar.
And yet that cupboard is opened often.
And yet you awoke to a new day.
A new morning to decide.
Do I live as I did or begin anew?
