“Life Is What’s Happening Now”


It’s the day after Christmas and already I’m looking forward to the new year. I got a brand new journal for Christmas, and I can’t wait to start writing in it. But more than that I’m anticipating a healthier, active and productive new year filled a better quality of life. It’s as if when the clocks strikes midnight I’ll be reborn with a fresh new start, but just like when a new birthday comes we don’t feel any different than we did the day before.

So I bring myself back to the now, and in that moment of conscious thinking I realize I have 6 more days of living to do before the new year even begins. It was as if I was wishing my days away, and what guarantee do any of us have that we’ll be here from one day to the next. No-one wants to think of that, but it sure does give me a wake-up call. So I’ve decided to live within the hope that this day has to offer, and I have to say it feels good to be alive even with the limitations I have right now. I can find things to do that make my day feel worthwhile. All it takes is a bit of conscious effort to create the mindfulness I need. It reminds me of the same kind of mindfulness I need as I practice walking right, heal to toe, Connie. Heal to toe, so that knee bends with your walk. Life is full of many things to do right now, work, practice, play and fun. It’s up to us to make the best of it. John Lennon couldn’t have said it more clear for me today, “Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.”

I've come to know myself as a unique individual expression of God. I love that there is only one me in all the world. I'm still learning, growing and experiencing all the wonders that this life has to teach me. I live, move, and breath in this shell of a body God has given me, and together we travel. He see's, hears, taste, smells and touches all that I experience through the individual personality that I am. I believe He exist in each one of us for the same purpose. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. I love to write and express the many thoughts that swim around in my head. I love to read. I'm a creative crafty kind of person. I love being in my garden. I've been working on my families genecology for 25 years. I think that about sums me up for now.
