It’s hard to believe it’s May 1st already. I’m sitting outside enjoying an early morning cup of coffee, listening to the birds chirping sweetly, thinking about the day ahead.
Lots to do. Lots more that I HAVE to do. Even more still that I WANT to do.
All this thinking this early in the morning has the potential to become overwhelming. The thing is though, you can’t get caught up in all of that. It only becomes overwhelming if you let it. But why do that to yourself?
Yes, it’s important to have goals & meet deadlines & accomplish the “to-dos”, “have to-dos” & “want to-dos” BUT if you allow yourself to focus only on all that’s to be done are you leaving time in your day to just live?
Are you taking time to enjoy your day & all the beauty that lies ahead in the unexpected? Or are you so wrapped up in the deadlines that you find yourself saying where’d the day go?
Do me a favor. Just stop. For a minute stop & just be. Enjoy that cup of coffee
Take a minute to appreciate what you do have. Take a second to appreciate those around you. Just be.
Be all that you can be.
Make today amazing.
