, new year
Yes, I know it's January 3rd already. And I realize that I didn't post any lofty resolutions, or lament goals I failed to reach last year. But I will say this: Today is Monday and I don't know about you, but I love Mondays with a vengeance.
Add to it the fact that this is the first Monday of the new year and well...you can see where this is going, can't you? I have a brand-new journal waiting to fill. Beside me sits a cup of steaming coffee, thanks to my new stainless steel Delonghi coffeemaker. Life is good, and I've taken a giant leap into the new year with bubbling enthusiasm for what this great Unknown will hold.
I'm enough of a realist to know that there will be struggles, but like a pebble washed ashore, I know that such experiences ultimately polish and refine me. I'm a believer in taking life one day at a time and I'm anticipating each step as someone accepting a rare and precious gift.
I hope your year is also filled with great anticipation and hope. So tell me, what does this Monday mean to you?

Here is an interesting concept.
It heals wounds. It flies by so quickly. Sometimes it stands still. And almost always we don't have enough of it. We desperately try to find more time in our lives. Time to complete those never-ending tasks, time to see people we haven't seen, time to spend with our families, time to relax. Before we know it our entire life has already happened and yet we forgot to find the time for the most important thing- enjoying life.
Yes, certain things have to be done. Appointments need to be attended. House needs to be cleaned and family members need to be looked after. We can't put our lives on hold in order to find the time to enjoy life and we shouldn't have to in a first place.
It's the little ways of noticing those beautiful moments of life that matter. Little ways of dedicating some time of the day for your favourite things. Read the book you've been wanting to read for months; take that dream getaway; organize & redecorate your living space the way you want it; call up the friend you've been meaning to see for a while; start working out. Whatever you've been wanting to do- do it now. Because there is no time like the present moment. After all, we don't know what tomorrow will bring, so might as well live your life to the fullest TODAY!
