In the Moment

Lately I’ve had lots of ideas swirling around in my head for new projects that I’m really excited about… but none of them have made it past the list-making stage.  I had big plans to make valentines this week and get them out in the mail, but it didn’t happen.  I know there’s still a couple weeks left, but for some reason I’m just not in the mood to make big batches of valentines this year.  Maybe I’ll have a spurt of inspiration this weekend, or maybe I’ll make something for my co-workers instead of worrying about the packaging/postage/addresses that goes along with mailing them to friends and family…  Or maybe I’ll just enjoy the holiday and not worry about having a craft to go along with it!

Sometimes I put too much unnecessary pressure on myself to do things that other people don’t care about.  I don’t mean that in a nobody-appreciates-me way, just that it’s not as important to other people.  So I’ve decided not to stress about it!  Instead of a Project Pinterest today I’m just taking a deep breath and trying to remember to enjoy the present.

In this moment, I am…

:: relieved the work week is almost over, with all the potential of the weekend ahead

:: anticipating tonight… our tradition of dinner and drinks every Friday (tonight it will probably be our current favorite… I always get the crab cakes and a glass of wine, and Sam always gets the prime rib.  Yum!)

:: delighting in my lists and all sorts of crafty projects I have in mind

:: listening to The Beatles – Sam got new speakers and we’ve been listening to a lot more music lately

:: hearing (unfortunately) the drums (!) and other assorted instruments from our upstairs neighbors (even over our tv/music)

:: sore (but pleasantly) from my new workout routine – it’s amazing how much better I sleep and how much I look forward to the next session.  (Why did I wait so long to start?)

:: planning our travels for the year – it’s nice to have so many weddings, mini vacations, and holidays to fill up our calendar!

:: thinking about some changes I’d like to make… I’ve been pondering my options for a while, but I think I’ll be ready to put my thoughts into action soon

:: feeling optimistic about life… it’s a good mindset to be in!

What’s happening in your moment?

  1. My opinion, ENJOY valentines with your husband and don’t worry about anyone else. Have a great dinner tonight (I would get crab cakes too). Make each day worth it, even if you take a day and do nothing to relax, that’s worth it. Stay warm in your heart and in your life. You are an amazing young woman and I love you!

    Your Cuz,

    Jo
