Time Slips Away....

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

Hard to believe that tomorrow is September. Where did the summer go? In the blink of an eye it's just gone - just like that... I guess in that there is a lesson. As time slips away from us we all grow older, day by day, week by week. Are you awake? Are you aware of all that is around you, all your daily experiences. And are you consciously making the decisions that are shaping what is your life? Are you evolving as a person? Or have you grown stagnant? Are you going to wake up one day to look around, shiver and question "how did I get here?"... This is how I feel this past summer. January to June were great! July and August have completely just slipped away from me. I need to get off this merry-go-round and grab ahold of opportunities and cease each moment because I don't want to mindlessly coast through time to be the person who wakes up years from now and realize that I haven't accomplished everything I sit here dreaming of. But while visualizing goals and dreaming of your outcomes will help you keep to task ~ they certainly on their own will not deal you success. I have things to be done! I have a me to make ~ MAKE YOURSELF! I cannot afford to let time just slip by like this anymore. Instead, I need to get my head in the game and maintain a steadfast committment to ME. So instead of waking up one day to find nothing has changed, I want to one day look in the mirror after all my hard work and sweat and simply fist pump and whistle at what I have accomplished. And the best part of all this is that I know I can. I will be comfortable in my skin. I will lead a life that makes me excited and proud. I will continue learning new things and growing 'intellectually that is'. And I will be the best wife and mom to my family - because when I'm feeling great, I am great. And this shines through in all aspects of my life. It will be infectious! I will be all that I have set out to be "without a doubt undoubtedly" (cue Eminem - Not Afraid, LOL!). The only moment we have is now, so leave yesterday alone... and march with intent through today and into tomorrow. Plan what you will accomplish, and make your map to get there and just do it - no excuses. Break out of that which holds you back - define yourself. Don't let anyone else define you! Be beautiful on your own terms. Do what you enjoy and do it well! Be true to you. Be strong. And trudge through the hard times, and hold on because to have your proud/fist pumping/whistling moment you have to overcome the hardships, the tests of strength. You can do it. I'm making myself a priority. It's a state of mind - be healthy in mind and lucky in love.

If not now, when? (cue Incubus, LOL!)

I love me, I have faith in myself and I'm excited for what's to come.
Breathe, now run!
