happy saturday

a month has already gone by since i last posted.

my last post was a goodbye.  that was a hard day.  

there are times when the actual experience of leaving something makes you wish desperately that you could stay,  
and then there are times when the leaving reminds you a hundred times over why exactly you had to leave in the first place.
this past month has been a blur of busyness. lots of changes but in  a really good way.   
i had some reservations about making the "big move"  but all of my fears have been unfounded.
after ten years you form lots of habits in your day to day at a job, the comfort level is a big draw.
when we change our habits we change our lives.  change can push us, pull us and remake us.
shaking all of that up is a bit scary but we all need satisfying work and a sense of accomplishment
- a feeling that you are making a contribution that matters.
no matter what we do,  we all have something unique to offer, whether you are 20 or 90 so give it your best shot. 

of course i miss my friends and daily chats but this new adventure is a challenge and a song of comfort.  a new adventure always involves taking a risk and a leap of faith.  i find more and more as time moves on the things i really need to make me happy are limited in scope. a  quiet saturday morning after a long busy week and time around the table with my family are two things that really sustain me.  not that work is secondary but you can feel frantically busy and also feel that you are not spending enough time on what really matters.  
all of us have to stop and re-evaluate that from time to time.  for a happier life it's important to create an atmosphere of growth.  perfection is not what we need,  just making each day your best day is really all that matters.  it's what we all want but it can so easily get missed.

so just for today notice the sparkle in the everyday moments.

a hug
the smell of fresh cut grass after such a long winter
a txt from someone you love
that first morning coffee
a long walk to clear your head.

today is the best time to begin whatever it is that will make you happier.

love sent, xo
