It's a good day to "seize the day", right!? Thanks to my career choice, I was blessed with a long weekend. I made a giant list of things to do and accomplished most of them while also catching up on sleep. This is a positive all on its own, sleep is usually the thing I sacrifice to get the to-do-list done. I've decided to truly enjoy life I need sleep, not too much, but enough to be a human without dark circles under her eyes.
This past weekend was Memorial Day. In the past this has been a busy weekend with many things on the list to do and even more places to go, each requiring a different dish to pass. With our daughter on campus for the summer and my husband at work, I opted to enjoy the time catching up on my personal to-do-list. I regained control of our house. Not only did I run the vacuum but I moved around furniture, purged some clutter to the thrift store and even more to the dumpster. It feels good, these were good moments.
On today's podcast, Livin' with Lisa: Keeping it Real, I encouraged my listeners to "seize the day" and leave a legacy for those they care about the most. My hope is that you, my readers, will feel encouraged and inspired to do the same thing. Each day is a gift and we need to choose our moments. There are many things we could be doing but when you prioritize what you'll do, consider which ones will make you the best version of yourself.
I'm thankful to have many moments this past weekend to choose from and couldn't narrow it down to just one moment to share: our daughter coming home from college to join me at the parade, transplanting our elephant ears so I can gift them to some special people, catching up on sleep, cleaning the house, walking the dog, walking through the cemetery to see how many people served our country in our small town, and my list could go on.
Will you take a moment and share the moments that stand out to you today? You have the ability to choose the moments that matter, these moments add up to the legacy we leave our loved ones.
What moment from this past weekend stands out to you the most?
