The book sitting on my desk is "you've got a friend" It's a collection of quotes. I bought it for a friend and have it sitting on my desk so I'll remember to deliver it to her. I opened it about halfway & this quote jumped out at me. I'm not really sure what to write about it, but I think it's so perfect. Everything in life takes time. Time to smell the roses, time to be a friend, time to rush around not paying attention. How do you live your life? I think I'm somewhere in the middle, but I try to be present, try to be mindful, try to enjoy the time I have. Although at times, I find I can't remember what I did with the past 30 minutes. That always jolts me back to the present, reminding me to be present in my own life. Playing with my children everyday is something I always take time to do. They're only little for such a short period of time! Writing this post, for instance, isn't a straight 20-minute activity. I had to stop & take off Monkey's bicycle helmet. It's such a pleasure to be able to do these things! Even if it interrupts my blog writing ... b/c really, what is more important?
I need to be more mindful of my med schedule and staying compliant. I've done really well for my first week, taking just one medicine (Mepron). Today I started the second one (Ceftin) and I'm motivated to stay on top of it. I just know myself and know that at times I can go through the whole day without even thinking about it. I definitely need to be more mindful in this area.
Funny, I just typed 'arena' instead of 'area', which makes me think of "The Hunger Games." I read all 3 books & saw the movie -- the only movie hubby & I have seen in a theater in I don't know how long. Did you see it? Did you read it? Did you like it?
Okay, focusing .... :) My aim today is to be mindful. To pay attention. To take the time.
