I feel like I’m in a constant state of motion. I find myself moving from place to place. Picking up, putting down, folding, washing, kissing, laughing. It’s amazing to me how there is always something to do.
Having children and dreams and a life that I love is the biggest gift. I’m reading a book that is 365 days worth of stories and positive affirmations about wealth. Today’s story was about remembering to actually enjoy your life. To slow down a bit and make time for the things you want and love to do. The story makes a point of how life will just continue after you’re gone so make the most of it while you’re here. I remember when my father died I had that very realization. He had died in the wee hours of the morning and I’ll never forget the phone ringing at 8am. It was a salesman trying to get me to buy the newspaper. I wanted to shout at him that my father had just died and didn’t he know that? How could he ask me to buy a newspaper at a time like that. And then I realized, life just keeps going. It might have stopped for my father and even for me in that moment but the rest of the world keeps moving. So, I keep moving. I do my best to remember to smile and laugh and not take it all so seriously. It’s hard to do sometimes but I do my best.
My affirmation for today is “I enjoy each and every minute of my blissful life!” And you know what? I do! Even in the midst of the chaos, I’m happy. Deep down happy.
