With Your Life...Every Minute of It.
I need to have this tattooed on my arm. I so often fall victim to the I'll be happy "when" sickness. My life is amazing - right now.
I need to stop worrying if have met all of my imaginary deadlines, if I accomplish everything on my completely ridiculous to-do list, if I have "done enough" today, if I have done enough for everyone else.
I need to start doing more for me, being in the moment, realizing our world will not end if things get put off until tomorrow, next week, or never get done, realizing that doing things with people is usually better than doing things for them.
Today, there were probably 15 things my brain was telling me I "should" be doing...but instead I took my blanket and my coffee outside and sat on the bench in my yard surrounded by my garden and the birds and watched the sunrise. It was awesome. Then I walked around the garden and inspected all of my beautiful seedlings that are just coming through the soil....it might not have been the most productive activity in terms of getting my to-do list done....but it definitely was productive in filling my soul with the beauty around me.
Be in love with your life...every minute of it.
