Where did the year go?
Thursday, October 04, 2012
I swear when I woke up it was only April. Now the calendar at work says October!! When did that happen? Where did the time go?
I know what happened. I was too busy with everything going on in my life right now to look around and enjoy everyday. I was too busy with my boys and their wrestling, basketball, track, baseball, football, learning to drive, first jobs, and any other issue that arose. I was busy at work doing the job of 3 after my partner in the office retired, no one was hired to replace her, and I was given another job to add to my already busy day. I was busy trying so hard to make everything seem perfect from the outside, I didn't realize my marriage was breaking apart.
So this week I have been making the effort to live in today. I try not to worry about tomorrow or beyond. I wake up and start today. I enjoy my early morning excursion with my dog. I do what I can at work and not stress about what I can't. I still plan the day out as far as meals, activities and housework. But, I take the time to enjoy the day. It is October 4, and I have really enjoyed the first four days of October. I hope to enjoy what is left of 2012 and enjoy all of 2013.
