In these days of “shoulda”, “coulda”, “woulda”, and “maybe”, and “what if”, I have been doing some re-evaluating of my “life”…we aren’t talking about the big LIFE, but about daily living. For example: how many of us don’t go someplace because it’s “too hot”, “too cold”, “too early”, “too late”, and, eventually, we don’t go at all. I am so guilty of this, and, I fear, I am not alone. I have missed many opportunities because I couldn’t, or wouldn’t, get my rear end off the couch. I became aware of the many lost opportunities after Dave passed and I set a goal for myself to do better. When the California poppies were radiant during the great “Super Bloom”, I went to see them. There was a recent exhibit at the old Crystal Cathedral of the art of the Sistine Chapel and I went to see it and made an outing out of it by going to Fuddruckers for an amazing hamburger. I went to San Diego on the train and went to the zoo with my kids and came home on the train. This is something I have always wanted to do (and want to do again.)
When I get home, I document these visits and re-enjoy them every time I see my pages. This is something we can all do…get out of our comfort zone and do something special. Enjoy the experience. We have no idea what tomorrow will bring…or not bring.
