Early mornings. Birds singing. Sun shining. Coffee. And a blank page. And a gorgeous pen with which to document my thoughts and feelings. Am I happy? Yes. Is my life perfect? No. But it is about celebrating those perfect moments. I am sure he didn't coin it, but my Dad always said "start as you mean to go on" and I practice that daily. I start with a positive mind and a grateful heart. Not always easy, but "nothing worth having ever is". There are bumps in every road, and sometimes we just run out of gas, so when your tire gets flat or your tank is empty call roadside assistance aka "your person" sometimes I am my own person and I write to myself in my journal. Sometimes your flat tire and empty tank is a gentle reminder to just slow down for a bit and take time to reflect. Life isn't a race. The finish line isn't a place I am hoping to get to quickly. .
