Drink It All In



Did you say it?

I love you. I don’t ever want to live without you. You changed my life.’

Did you say it?

Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it…

but every now and then, look around;

Drink it in,Β  ’cause this is it.

It might all be gone tomorrow…

We spend our whole lives worrying about the future,

planning for the future, trying to predict the future,

as if figuring it out will cushion the blow.

But the future is always changing.

The future is the home of our deepest fears and wildest hopes.

But one thing is certain when it finally reveals itself.

The future is never the way we imagined it…”

(Ellen Pompeo, Grey’s Anatomy)

Seems to be my theme for the time being!

There was a Buddhist story that I read in Tuesdays With Morrie about living as though each day were your last.

“Every day, have a bird on your shoulder asking you,’Is today the day?’ Am I ready? Am I being the person I want to be?”

That being said, I’m going to try… try not to shoo, maim, or harm the bird in any way πŸ˜‰ … and to listen to it remind me of what is most important! To leave each person I encounter today with the certainty of knowing that they are loved… to be the person that I want to be… and to drink it all in as though it were the last time I might be there. πŸ™‚Β  It’s a plan; a goal.
