Life goes by fast. Most days are uneventful however satisfying. The days and years are somewhere in a fog, except of course for birthdays, graduations, and significant happenings.
In fact, most of my days have come from seamless late nights of endless thinking and running my mind off the cliff with the “what if’s”. My days fly by, barely leaving a visible trace they began and ended.
January and December are the months I am more conscious of time. With January being all about innovation for the New Year and the time in my life that seems everything is washed clean, ready to start fresh. And December, the year closure point is all about the Christmas countdown of preparation and planning. These days are about the anticipation of a new hope to come.
Summertime holds my happiest days. All year-long I think about the upcoming season of summer. Visions of swimming in the ocean, which feels like liquid velvet in July. Sitting on the shore with your newest playlist blaring and a best-selling summer reads in hand. Those are the days I savor. Those days are to renew my mind, body and spirit to move forward. The winter months are darker, but still hustling by. Days of bright sunshine are shorter. The days of winter are hard to get out bed in the mornings. The beach is good in the winter – filled with locals walking their dogs and surfers braving the cold waters waiting for the big wave.
Reflecting on the days of my life I see images in my head of good times, good friends and a full life. I have experienced epic love of all kinds that have inspired me to love others and to value my life. Take time to laugh a little every day and don’t be stingy with your hugs.
