To get all there is out of living, we must employ our time wisely, never being in too much of a hurry to stop and sip life, but never losing our sense of the enormous value of a minute.” -- Robert UpdegraffOf all the lessons life has thrown my way, one ranks above the rest. Maybe it's because I have been the given opportunity to learn it over and over and over and over again. Or maybe it's just that I've finally decided to acknowledge it, accept it, and just see it for what it is. Either way, I know it's true. . . I know that the anticipation of an event is most often far worse than the reality of it.
Can I get an Amen?
So as to prevent myself from blubbing all over Running Chatter and embarrassing myself about my departure from maternity leave back into the work world tomorrow, I'm going to heed Mr. Updegraff's words. . . Today, I'm going to slow down and sip life as it comes. I'm going to get a little extra sleep. I'm going to focus on the gift of this moment. I'm going to see the value in today.
Today, I will be thankful.
More later. . .
