Tomorrow I will be home and there is no doubt that the collection of ‘moments’ will have far exceeded the collection of ‘things!‘
I can hardly wait to sort through this fast excursion of happy adventures into memory compartments, so I can tell the story with a beginning, middle, and ending.
When we focus on moments...we don’t let ‘things’ become a deterrent to our goals in life. Living a fulfilling life doesn’t have anything to do with ‘things’… instead, it is all about feelings. When I get down…thinking that I am letting others down by not striving harder to do this or that…I just have to stop and focus instead on my own personal “why?”
“Why” is this goal so important to me? If the gut-wanting feeling is still deep inside…then we need to start climbing those moments again and walking around the obstacles of “things” that deter us from our goal.
Sometimes we have to be our own best coach…cheering ourselves on when negative voices inside try to make us quit….stop short of the life’s works we want to be remembered by…accompanied by the feelings people will remember about us while we kept ‘keeping on…keeping on’ along our journey.
So until tomorrow…Do something different today…it doesn’t have to be big…just a small daily decision that breaks the ‘same-old, same-old ‘ patterns of our daily lives. “Instead of ‘same-old’ let’s try “brand new!” Then smile!

Last of the “pretties” before I left. I feel sure I will be returning to some dried up thirsty plants (neighbors/friends are all out of town too)…but ‘mama’ is coming…ready to fight off mosquitoes and ‘no-see-ums” to let her garden ‘children’ drink the water and be restored.
