Be in the moment

So, why is it so easy to get distracted from all the greatness that we want to do all the greatness we want to be?

Well, I've decided that I am on a guilt free trip! We have to put ourselves first. Of course there are times that we need to sacrifice. But, it feels so good to do what you want when you want to do it.

Here are some examples of things that we should all do when we want:

Take a nap

get an ice cream cone

read a book

watch a movie

snuggle with our pets, kids and other lovables

make a snowman

take a walk

go for a swim

listen to music and sing along

Dirty dishes, unmade beds, laundry, dirty cars....well, we don't want to be slobs but doing the stuff we want to do when we want to do it can come first. We can do the other stuff after even if we don't get to it until tomorrow. Do you know why? Because if there isn't a tomorrow we did all the good stuff and the dirty stuff doesn't matter.

The hardest part is figuring out what we really want to do.

Lately, I have been on a kick... I love to read. Well, for quite some time, I had no time as mentioned in my other blogs. I was reading but not really for pleasure. Reading for school. Then, after graduation, I didn't want to read anything. So, I didn't read anything. I started to learn what it was like to live without homework, class and studying. But then, one day, I decided to read a book. That was the end, I'm hooked again. I read about three or four books a month. I can't get enough. So, for now that is what I am doing. I am still into watching my Netflix. So, I'm still watching them at least three a week. I'm doing some crafts too, but mostly reading.

There is so much to be involved in and a part of....in the community. But for now I'm going to keep reading and blogging. I'm happy when I read. I look forward to it. That is what life is about...doing what makes us happy. Then, we are healthy.

The important part of this blog is to share my experiences and news and "stuff we all should know." Not too many people are interested right now. I see that I only have two followers and of course they are both followers of me whether I blog or not.

I feel like I am babbling. I'm going to just dive right in. Get to the meat. I know you're yelling "Where's the beef?!"

So, here's how it will go... when I have a divine moment as I'll call it I'll share it. Everyone should share these with as many people as they can. Divine moments may be related to something that I experience or something that I learn. Hopefully, this blog will become a great reference source for myself and others. My next entry is going to be on one of my pre-determined topics. Along the way, I'll add divine moments as they happen. But for now I want to get through a lot of good stuff that I'm anxious to share. Then, we'll see what happens. The goal is for me to evolve from my current indulgence of reading, blogging, and netflixing to the next big thing.


  1. Yes, I'm ready for the "beef" but only if it's grass fed and free of growth hormone & antibiotics!

    Since you are on a mission to do things that you really want to do, I'd like to hear your perspective about work and family. Typically, we view these two aspects of life as things we have to do whether we like it or not. How do you manage that? Do you have divine moments inspired by your work and family?

    For those of you who aren't close to me personally, I'm an academic and will tend to post inquiries with the goal of further discussion and getting into the depth of issues relevent to everyday life. I think that we only grow as human beans (yes, I purposefully wrote "beans")if you delve deep enough into a topic and are left sitting in the gray area where there are no real answers. Let's get jiggy with the gray matter!

  2. Gee, I hate waiting. Hello Sister! It's the weekend and you have time to blog- where are you!!! Actually, you always have time to blog. Respond to your eager followers!
