Happy New Year! Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? I’m typically not a ‘resolution’ kind of girl however this year, with the farmhouse completion date approaching ever so quickly, I am resolving to just enjoy today, whatever it may bring, and really try to not get caught up in thinking and wishing that all of these upcoming decisions and pressures would be over with! Do you ever find yourself daydreaming or wishing that today or whatever circumstance you happen to currently be in, would just fast forward to another time and place? For me, I find myself fantasizing about this building process finally being complete and me just kicking back, sipping lemonade by the pool. (who wants to join me?) What do you dream about happening in the near future? Maybe it is that nine-month longpregnancy finally wrapping up? Possibly that exhausting toddler moving on to a happier, less needy phase? Are you wishing thatyour spouse would return home after a long deployment? These are all great things to look forward to but often times we miss out on all the great things that are going on in the present moment right under our noses! So TODAY, I am going to look around (past those Christmas decorations that need to be put away) and be thankful for the spot I am in at this very point in time. TODAY, things are happening in my life, business and family that I was dreaming and praying for just a few short yearsago! Wow! Yes, there was a day when I was longing for the amazing, crazy, busy life happening right now TODAY, to take place. So, will you join me in setting aside just two seconds in your day, to take a quick ‘life inventory’ and look around to just enjoy the process of life and the daily experiences you are living RIGHT NOW! Someone please keep me accountable to this guys, because I if know myself, I will be pulling my hair out feeling like I’m drowning in about 5….4…..3…..2…..1!
