It is the first Monday of 2015. A Monday of hopeful expectations. This waiting for change, for new life. I have plans. Plans to change, plans to learn and grow, to be here for my kids and my husband.
In my attempt to be more here I am preparing for the later, for all the later heres and nows that will come. I am surrounded by new routines and schedules, organization resources to allow me to be here when life demands I be somewhere else. See that is the beauty of my one word, that no matter how fast I am moving or how fast the world spins and twirls I can be still here, aware and awake and attentive to the here, the now.
It will not always be easy but it will be worth it. Learning to be more mindful of every moment. I don't want to get caught up in all of life's whirlwinds which is so easy to be swept up in, the chaos of the moments. My goal is to embrace those moments, breathe, and just be.
What are your thoughts on this first Monday of the new year?
