It’s Time To Live, Right Now

It’s a beautiful morning! With Dolores O’Riordan’s passing, I was faced with my own mortality. And by goddess, if I’m not fully living then what is the effin point?! Our lives are so temporary. We quietly think we have forever to do this or that, and before we know it we’re old! As I write this Touch of Grey started playing. I will get by Jerry, you’re right. Until I’m buried 6 feet under. I’m a spiritual person. But that does not mean that I don’t feel the impermanence of this life. Every sunrise, every smile, every laugh, I will observe and drink down into my soul. This is it guys. Enjoy it now. Enough of the whining and complaining. That’s a waste of your precious words and time and thoughts. To fill up on the moments we have, in front of us, that is what my goal is. I may stray into judgement, ah hell, of course I will. I’m a Virgo! Haha! But the time is now to embrace this life, our loved ones and ourselves. Before it’s lights out for good, turn all your lights on and shine brighter than the sun. It’s our time to shine 🌞

Saturday Night Thoughts

Remembering the past can be bittersweet. The brain cannot keep memories exactly how they happened. As time goes on, our brain changes and so do our memories. I’m posting a picture of the summery Queen Anne’s Lace to remember that this icey cold weather we’re having will soon be a memory, just like the warm moment I took this picture. Tomorrow today will be gone. I’m very relieved that we will be getting a break from these frigid temps starting tomorrow, but I’m looking at the solutions on how to deal with something uncomfortable that has been here for over two weeks. I love going outside, I love taking Leeloo outside. And when we can’t do this, it forces me to see the truth in me. The truth is, I’m strong enough to deal with the pain. My memories serve this to be true. My present now sits with twiddling thumbs while my heart learns new ways to live happily and my mind finds new doors to open to lead me down a path that is fulfilling. The destination does not matter at this point. It is the journey that’s in front of me that needs special care and attention. Because that is the life we are living. The journey of right now. Whether it is ice cold or humid hot, or just a perfect 70°. Every degree is a lesson to learn, to enjoy, or to suffer. But it passes, it always changes. If we stay present, we will see through the temporary and find what’s real within.
