My life doesn’t always go along the way I think it will. But, it is my life and I feel a strong desire to make it the best – the most marvelous- that I can. I try to remember this as often as I can. That I should enjoy every fleeting moment for these moments make up my life. Sometimes days can start to feel monotanous, and you can feel yourself settling into a rut. Wake up, work, home, chores, dinner, chores, sleep, repeat. But within this monotany you can find beautiful things if you are willing to look for them. Actually, if you find yourself really opening your eyes, you’ll find that you can create marvelous things everywhere. Shake up a margarita on a Tuesday night, just because Tuesdays need some fun, too. Drop the day’s chores and take the dogs for a nice long walk because the sun is shining. Drive home on the back roads. Get out of bed five minutes late just so you can snuggle with that special someone a few extra minutes. Actually enjoy the sunset, or the sunrise. Make time to drink your morning coffee IN the coffee shop and not on-the-go.
Remember that your life is yours. We shouldn’t always rely on extrinsic things to make us happy when we have, within us, the power to make our own happiness.
