Can you imagine? A day that is just filled with joy and happiness. Well get ready for it, because it is right now. Right this moment. Believe it or not, this is all that we have. Right now, what your life is like this very minute, is something to rejoice in. Right now at this moment all is well. Nothing that happened yesterday matters, nothing that will happen tomorrow will matter. Every single moment is what counts. Right now. It takes some time to understand that tomorrow is never promised and RIGHT NOW, this very second is all that matters. Practice it, it will eliminate the worry of tomorrow. No worries about late bills, or how you will manage something that is trying and challenging. Because right now, all is incredibly well. If it is not, then take a few minutes and think about what is causing the moment to be unhappy or stressful. Change it. get rid of it. Do something, anything and make it your best day. After all this is all we have.
Keeping it real...some thing that I have been trying to do lately is that. Trying to find a way to still be myself when nothing is about me anymore. Struggles are so great for everyone and I am sure you have a long list as well. Not everyone is going to have the same challenges in life and sometimes the things that bother us the most are things that do not show up in our photo's. Invisible to others but they continue to eat at our souls until we have resolved them. So this is me , on a day that was nice. It is easy to post a photo after we have done our hair and picked out the perfect clothes, but on this day I did none of the above. I don't live near the ocean. I live on a small street in a small town in Missouri. In a small house. So my outlook is starting to change. Keeping it real. Wearing my sweatpants when I want. Brushing my hair less, maybe even cleaning less. Keeping it all together on the inside is much easier for me when I am not trying to keep it all together on the outside. I love gardening and am going to make this the best season ever, all while making a mess, lol. I read once, that one of your goals should be that when you have people over to your house, they should leave feeling better about themselves, not feeling better about you. And that totally meant why do I spend 4 hours cleaning when I know someone is coming by for 5 minutes? I must be crazy. So here I go, off to work and all the while ...keeping it so real people will be wondering all day what the heck is wrong with me :) and if your feeling the same way.... take the challenge and start just being you :)
