Sometimes I get caught up in the craziness of the holiday that I forget to just appreciate where I am at the present moment.
I don’t want another Christmas or New Year’s Eve to go by and not actually enjoy the season. This holiday I want to have a few drinks, eat a few of my favorite dishes (and deserts), while I enjoy sharing with people that are close to me.
I can appreciate many things in my life, however the month of December tends to always be in a rush that usually I just want it to be over with.
This time I want to be in the moment. There is so much to appreciate I cant even begin to list the many thanks I have. I have come a L O N G way and appreciate all the good, the bad, the ugly, and yes even the tragic. I have to find good in the “not so good” experiences. There must be a reason for everything! I think it’s called attitude. Resilience is tied in there somewhere I’m sure.
I have to look at life as if my life can’t get any better………and lets just say it does…….. I just moved into awesomeness with even MORE to appreciate. I also realize that things aren’t always as we see them to be. Example may be, someone driving a real nice car may have major health issues or extremely unhappy with there job. So I remind myself to appreciate the here and now….. with or without the things money can buy.
With that said, my life can take a turn for the “not so good”. After the shock of whatever it may be, I will find the gratitude in the loss and what is to come. After all, my Mother would say; “It can only get better”. My peace and joy are up to me. My character is a reflection of my soul. I want it to shine with an appreciation for the here and the now.
