i’m not waiting for anything. this thought hit me out of the blue the other day. during all those years of teaching i was always waiting for the weekend. or spring break. or, best of all, summer vacation. often counting the days. even when i liked what i was doing. why? well, apparently i liked what i did more when i wasn’t at work. and… i had very little insight or practice into living in the moment.
it’s been almost 2 years since i’ve had to deal with the rigors of getting up in the morning and heading out the door to work. it’s been a time of transition for sure. with many ups and downs. one of the biggest ups has been the opportunity to soak up the wisdom of so many fabulous books and blogs and to connect with so many very wise women (thank you!!!)
a steady diet of inspiration can have a powerful effect! it doesn’t happen overnight, but in looking back over these last couple of years, i can see a shift occurring. at this particular time in my life, i’m enjoying each day as it comes, learning, growing and attempting to create a little goodness to put back out into the universe. sure, i look forward to upcoming events, but they are not the reference point of my life. today. right now. that’s where it’s at.
