365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 266

this is so perfect for today because I think for the first time in a while I am totally OK with my circle. Big or small I know where everything fits. Not to say that something won’t change, actually I hope it does but that I am completely OK with understanding that some people are only to be in your circle for time while others will be there a lifetime. I am not afraid to let people go – or to truly let things be and follow the path that is put in front of me as I discover it. I think as scary as it is to say I am ready to leave what I know for something different that I feel is going to be more authentic to me. What that is, I have no idea but I am willing to lean into the wind, listen carefully walk with intention and open my eyes to what’s next.

I now know and have been able to put into practice The thoughts, I don’t care. I remember a time when I used to feel that everything was my responsibility and that if something had to do with me or was put on my plate I had to do it no matter what. I now know that it is OK and at some points understandable to think to myself what even to say well that’s nice but I don’t care or I don’t have time or you have fun with that. In may have taken me a while to come to this thought process but guess but I don’t care.

Maybe it’s because I haven’t always been an optimist, who am I kidding I am a self-proclaimed pessimist 90% of the time. I often feel like if I expect the worst when the best happened I can just be surprised by it. I mention this because, I realized today oh, life is good.That might seem like a rather simple and matter fact statement, but, if you’re someone like me who always seems to running to good things butHave a hard time keeping them around. Maybe you know what I mean when I say like it’s good, for the moment. It was funny I realized that, when I was driving home from work and there was no somethings going on that would normally stress me out and cause me to have anxiety all evening. I thought about them on the way home,But at the same time as thinking about them I was able to compartmentalize them put them in the “work part of my brain”and think well I’ll deal with it tomorrow. Which I feel like …

I don’t know how I feel about today. Did I have fun yes, do I know who my real friends I don’t know yes, am I happy at the way things turned out yes and no, do I know it is for the best, yes. Sometimes you have to go with the flow and except what happens even if the results in unfavourable. Knowing that there is a bigger plan for you makes all the difference, knowing you’re around good people makes it even easier. And knowing that you’re loved is the beginning of it all. Love your friends love your family love the people around you because you don’t know how long they will be in your life.

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 105

Today wasn’t necessarily a good day knew there was it a horrible day. It’s my birthday knows that. It was a very emotional day, I think that’s the best way to put it. I’ve always disliked my birthday, this is a fact. I am always depressed and my birthday and I can’t figure out why. It has been many years since I have had a birthday that I can say went well. Today though I can say that I saw my grandma and my brother I got to have lunch with my family and my mom came over when I forgot my glasses for a bit. I even found a cat grooming glove online which I promptly ordered. I hope this doesn’t set the tone for the rest of the year in fact I know it won’t the good thing about days hours minutes and moments is that they are just that there’s always another one and they continue so you’re never stuck in a moment it’s just a matter of rewriting the next one.

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 102

I think often we get caught up in what we I’m supposed to be doing or what we could be doing and we forget about the people that are right beside us. We take them for granted or we think that it can wait yet they may be begging for attention now. Waiting doesn’t last forever people will leave us whether physically emotionally or just in general and when we ignore or place less priority on a relationship or a thing that relationship or thing obviously suffers and create a wreath that may or may not be able to be healed. What I’m trying to say is, prioritize your friends and family get off your phone, the chore I can wait, the work can be done later. When something asks for your attention it’s because you were important enough to be thought of in that moment and you were chosen to help don’t ignore that, that could be your chance to make a difference to change that may be found in more ways than you’ll …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 101

Sometimes life throws you something that is completely unexpected just to see how you will handle it. When this happens because it will – it’s not a matter of if know there is no right or wrong way, The trick is in what it teaches you and who you become because of it. A lot of us myself included, have to be hit over the head 100 times by the same lesson before it sinks in, but when that lightbulb moment does take place it is something you will never forget. I came across a post on Facebook today of advice given by a 90-year-old man and a lot of it was practical but just as much of it was personal. Never take yourself too seriously, never miss an opportunity to tell someone you love them, make the most of every moment, things like that. It’s funny how life gives you what you need when you need it because little did I know that I would come home to a very interesting situation which is …

365 Days, Living In The Moment: Day 100

With it being the one hundredth day of this 365 day challenge I feel like I should do something big and yet this brings up the conversation what really makes a thing big, the amount of pressure we put on ourselves because of it or the impact it makes on our lives. I choose to believe the latter. This means that any and every moment has the potential of being a big moment of teaching you something of making you think of being life-changing. And yes I had one of those moments today, I met someone to do some shopping and this person knows me very well yet has a hard time with the chair situation. Though as they keep seeing me in it it seems to be donning on them that this is the new normal and it’s not going anywhere. This person shopped with me today and didn’t mention the chair at all, and treated me The exact same as they always would my favourite moment by far though was at the end …
