Live. . . .

 With life being turned inside out and upside down lately, uncertainty is shrouding everywhere I look. Trying to make arrangements for a child's weekly class and I can't even give a straight answer because I don't really know what my life will look like in a months time.  It's a bit unsettling to be sitting on the brink of something wonderful - a change we have worked towards, a new stage in our family life. Going through the motions of daily life which seem so mundane and 'normal' and 'routine' when our life at the moment is anything but.


It's good to get a shake up every now and then. A chance to view life from the outside. An opportunity to evaluate and decide:

What makes our family unique. . . .
What makes us come alive. . . .
What we want our family memories to be. . . .
What we love. . . .
What we want more of. . . .
How we want to live. . . .



I've been made aware just how important the small moments are. Taking the time to stop and notice the world which is flying by at a frantic pace. Determining to be grateful simply because I'm the one who gets the privilege of living my life. Making the effort to say 'yes' more and follow through on those things which I say I'll do 'soon' but 'soon' very often doesn't come.






It's about finding the joy, the good, the beauty in the everyday.


I've been forced to reevaluate the importants and the urgents. It's so easy to let my days fill with the urgents and squeeze out any space for the truly importants.



Looking at life objectively has made me realize I want to be even more intentional with my time. I want to cultivate life and joy in my home. I want to truly live.

::  Live Intentional.
::  Live Grateful.
::  Live Joyfully.
::  Live Fully.
::  Live my Love.
::  Live my Dream.

Truly LIVE.
