There’s no simpler way to put it.
“Celebrate we will, cause life is short but sweet for certain.” -Two Step by Dave Matthews Band
Be happy my friends!
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.
Take today & make it yours. Live a life that makes YOU happy. Don’t 2nd guess just live & love.
It’s so easy, with all that’s been going on in the world, to forget to live. You have to live in the moment and not take a second for granted.
Make something of your day. Tell those you love, you do. Tell those you forgive, you do. Tell those you miss, you do.
The day is yours. Take it. Run with it. Make it something. Tell a story. Live it loud. Live it right.
Do right by yourself.
If you don’t like something, fix it.
If you want to do something, do it.
Don’t complain about things you have control over.
Take a chance.
Make a change.
LIVE YOUR LIFE.
LoVE your life.
Throughout the hecticness that has been my week so far (yes I realize it is only Tuesday) I’ve encountered a few sunshiny moments which have really brightened my days. Nothing spectacular, just a couple little things that have brought a smile to my face in the midst of stress and sleepiness.
*checking my email to find several heart warming messages from one of my oldest and dearest friends; one which I’ve not seen in at least 8 years. Never having had a falling out our losing touch is attributed to the fact that life just has a tendedency of getting in the way and going much too fast. So needless to say I was surely a happy girl upon seeing these messages.
And then there’s this….
Seriously?!!! How can this little face not bring me to smiles? Oh my sweet nephew, how I adore you! This face is totally responsible for bringing me a sunshiny moment.
It’s the little things that truly make me thankful. We all need a reminder now and again. These were mine!
Have you had any sunshiny moments recently? What little things are you thankful for?

Arise too early; wake too late
laughter and love, anger and hate
upfront and honest; lie and sneak
Open your eyes; don’t dare peek
too big; too small
too short; too tall
too strong; too weak
too bold, too meek
Much too heavy; far too light
remain calm and collected; put up a fight
use your words, bite your tongue
far too old; much too young
tell me all, I don’t want to know
come here fast; go away slow
adore the beginning; fathom the end
keep enemies close; lose touch with friends
nightmares linger, wishing dreams to stay
live to dream, dream to play
Through every second, the search continues … the right moments; the right choices, the right people, the right things.
Instead I’ll just treasure each moment of everyday
Finding the right fit me.
