Oh, my darling, what if you fly?

Don't we all have moments of vulnerability? Times when we think - "What if I fall?" Don't we all wish someone would simply say: "Oh, my darling, what if you fly?"


What have we got to lose? Nothing - flap your wings!

Joy ...

I believe as we find joy in the seemingly ordinary moments, they are no longer ordinary. It's easy to get caught up in the mundane routines of day to day life but joy comes when we see them with appreciation.Our thoughts really do make our world.

There's joy in the sound of the morning songbird
There's joy in making lunch for the 100th time
There's joy in folding the laundry
There's joy in making the bed
There's joy in watering the flowers
There's joy in planning dinner
There's joy in driving my daughter to school

The list goes on and on. We add joy to the events in our lives by the meaning and value we place on the task at hand. If we think it does not matter - it won't. If you want the ordinary moments to matter - find joy and turn them into 'little moments that matter'!

What will you find joy in today?

The to-do list can wait!

I'm a to-do list person. I do well with lists. The lists motivate me and I like to check things off...
Today's list is long. I planned on completing every item.

How am I doing with the list? Not so great.

I got distracted by the gorgeous weather and the chairs on the back patio!
I sat. I soaked up a few rays and I thought - the to-dos can wait!

Happy Tuesday :)
