~ I want to celebrate and live my life ~
Spring is here and I am going to use this new change of season to shape up…on the inside. Throughout winter I find that I get comfortable…too comfortable. I settle into life, I settle into my routines, I actually think I get into a little bit of a rut. I keep to myself I go where I need to and keep to myself and my computer and my couch. I think now is the time to give myself a swift kick up the but and get back into living this beautiful life I have. I found myself being a bit negative over the last few months. Yes it has been hard with my husband’s car crash and then loosing his job but I am so thankful that he is still here with me and in perfect health and that I have a wonderful job that has kept us going through this ordeal AND he has a job interview tomorrow (yay) so fingers crossed we are off to a new start.
So it’s time to snap out of it, embrace the new season, and enjoy the sunshine, the new colours, the breeze, the flowers and the smells.
This week I have been sitting back and just watching the world pass me by. I have been watching friends, strangers, loved ones and how they act, interact and deal with this crazy world we live in. I consider myself a very friendly person; I take the time to listen, to be there for people, I feel a simple smile can brighten anyone’s day. While I was in my ‘rut’ it actually gave me time to sit back, observe and think about our lives. Unfortunately by watching people I found that too many people seemed to be very busy, too busy, and are letting their worlds pass them by. People are in such a rush these days. They have meetings to be in, appointments to take, and deadlines to meet. They walk 100 miles per hour with their heads down or their phone glued to their ear. They speed in their cars, honk their horn when something doesn’t go their way and even yell abuse. In my own negativity I found that I became more aware of the negativity in our world. I guess this was my big wakeup call which showed me that life is too short to not smile and celebrate my life every day.
Thank you spring for opening my eyes and allowing me to breath!
