Right now, life is whipping itself into a wonderful frenzy of activity. Where there was once three balls to keep in the air, there are now twelve. Appointments, obligations, plans and to-do's have whittled my time to an unrecognizable nub. In the meantime, our lives (that's me and the Misters) are in transition. Amidst wedding plans and life plans, the next chapter of our lives beckons. Large decisions are looming but the time is not yet right to make them. We are essentially waiting in the wings. Hanging out in the hallway, waiting for the next door to open.
Which brings me to this moment. Here & Now.
Wait a minute, I haven't thought about this moment until....this moment. Precisely why I am writing this post. When the winds of change are blowing, it is almost guaranteed that I am not thinking about the here and now. My focus is forward, upward, onward. Not here. Or now.
I'd like to take a moment, this moment, to center myself in today. Today, I have the opportunity to enjoy the day for what it is. The birds are chattering in the spring sun, the grass is greener than ever and I am home typing a post in this small window of now that has been given to me. Despite the busy week ahead, my here and now is calm. Everything is okay right now. I am rested. I am loved. I am here.
I am. Are you?
