Tired day, not so much energy, but pressing on to get things done because Life is Too Short and the only way to live life is to appreciate it each and every day. Different days might mean different things are appreciated.
As I sit here reflecting on what I have done today, I wonder if I have changed or if I have just changed my perspective?? Or maybe I am just more aware as a person?? I find it all very fascinating to say the least.
Took my pills, nearly choked on the big one. Quick shower and get dressed. A bowl of cheerios with milk. A glass of cranberry juice. Tired. Lay back down in bed. No peace as my mind wanders to all the things I should be doing. Pep talk with Nikki on FB. Each small step is one step closer.
Get out of bed. I cleaned out a cabinet that needed cleaning out. Now we are sorting into London, summer house, garage sale and garbage dump piles (boxes). It is hard to sort some things. Everything has a meaning but in the big scheme of things is every paper or memento really that important?? I filled a small garbage bag but still have too much stuff left. I will give that pile another go tomorrow.
Ate a light lunch and then I was a little stressed that I hadn't gotten more done. Peter and I went into the play room where we have stacked 30 boxes from when we styled the house. We went through 22 of them and sorted. The remaining ones are all those papers that we think are important. I will tackle them this week when Peter is at work. The London pile is exciting because there are paintings we have that we will be able to put up because there is more wall space in the new house. The garage sale pile will make a lot of people happy.
The things I treasure the most are the experiences I have had, the family that I have, the places I have visited and lived in, the people I have met, the people who are my friends, the memories from times spent with family and friends and the anticipation of making new memories and experiencing things together is very exciting. That combination is the meaning of living life to the fullest to me.
Our London home will be filled with memories from all the celebrations and experiences we have had and also be a place to create some new ones. I have a feeling we will be having many visitors. I might need to set-up an online booking system for all the visitors. (I can't wait.....)
Dinner and then some cheese doodles and nothing on TV. I am tired but otherwise feeling good.
APPRECIATE. LIFE. FRIENDS. FAMILY. KICKING ASS. TREASURE. GRATEFUL. MEMORIES.
