frosted white.

I remember why I slowly ended my blog: it’s because I was too busy to blog. This past week has been busy, but happy. Last weekend I went up north with my friends for some much needed girl time and had a blast. I miss hanging with my besties on weekends, but I’m so glad it’s easy to drive up north. It just would be better if she lived down here again πŸ˜‰ From macarons to Amish to mypapercrane to a casino… memories were made, and that is what life is all about.
We got back from the trip at midnight and I had to wake up at 6 AM for an all-day work training the following day. Hah, needless to say: I was exhausted. The week went on and work went well. I love my new job: the community is happy and it’s such a pleasure to work with children. And it’s wonderful I get to be in charge of the art room and have fun with the art lessons I create for the children. It’s a pleasure to hear how excited the kids come into the Art room πŸ™‚ It really brings me joy.
Life is happy.

And I only say that now because I have a good head on my shoulders and things have been working out lovely. I remind myself constantly that I make my own happiness in my life: I am in charge of who I am. I remind myself constantly to live in the present because I don’t know what will happen a week/a month/7 months from now. I do not dare try and predict or create expectations; I dare to live in the present and make the most of what is in front of me. I have control of right now and I need to make the most of life. I hope you all agree and live the same way. Don’t wait for the future or wait for the “maybes” and “whatcouldbes” because life is not set in stone and anything can happen.

More happy: it snowed today! We played outside like children with children today. Smiles and laughter. And then… I had to drive home in it. Hah… it took me twice as long at 20 mph here at the beach. But it sure was beautiful… I love how the snow falls so gently frosting everything white. But, oh man, when you slide as you stop too fast…I couldn’t care less about the snow. Send me somewhere tropical, pronto.

  1. Reminding oneself to live in the present is a good thing to do, consistently. It may be easy to get caught up with the past, but getting worried about the future is a pretty tricky trap, as well. Living in the now is the best way to keep your heart light, and to live well.

    Wishing you a good start of the week.
