The past couple of weeks have been a big eye opener for me. It started with a colleague who lost her 23 year old son in a car accident and it hasn’t stopped. This morning I heard of a fourth death in three short weeks.
I realize death is a part of live. I won’t say I agree with it or understand it. What I find very close to my heart at this particular moment, is need to embrace life.
Why do I worry about the little things?
The unnecessary argument that I had with K this morning.
The extra role of fat I carry around my waist, the one I obsess about.
Money I don’t have.
Worries about things that haven’t or might never happen.
Why do I fight through homework instead of enjoying it as quality time with Logan? Time I get to teach him something about life.
Why do I dread Oliver’s moaning instead of seeing it as an opportunity to to sing and dance to “Ring-a-ring o’ roses”?
Why is my schedule so full that I don’t have time for coffee with a friend?
Today I decide to embrace life. I choose to make time for the things that are important to me. I choose to stop stressing about the small things. I choose to have faith and accept the things I have no control over. I choose to embrace everything life has to offer and make the best of the not so nice moments.
Will you join me?
