This morning, my friend Lisa shared this on her Facebook page,
Monday Mood Makeover. This is the only week in the entire year that we will live in two separate years. What a great backdrop for embracing where we are and looking forward to who we will become. In this one week we get to be in both places. That’s super cool.
It was so thought provoking, I tried to find some quotes about it. I found a few:
Such a great way to think about life. Embracing the past and anticipating the future, yet living in the present. We all learn from our past. We are motivated to be better human beings. A better friend, a better spouse, a better parent, better at our job….the list can go on and on.
Someone commented on her post and I think it is something I could work on. Perhaps my New Year’s Resolution!?! She wrote,
Not sure why, but I never thought of it that way! 2 yrs, 1 week. I’m attempting to be more in the present, when I’m with someone, I’m talking and listening to them…trying to keep my mind from racing forward (or backwards.)
I am so guilty of this. My mind is always racing. Always going on to the next thing before I have finished with what I am doing. So, I will try to be more in the present. More in the now. Time goes too fast already. Why rush it?
