today when i left the house i was filled with such joy for living that i wanted to freeze time and hold it close and precious. i wanted to take it and wear it like a single, warm pendant where it could always be close to my heart.
so much of our time is spent being responsible - working, doing, chores, tasks, lists, and the other myriad things that make us feel bogged down. this morning i wanted to fly - soar high above and delight in the cool breeze and the changing colors.
but...i came to work. and that is good too because it allows me to live and not be worried about bills and other anchors around my ankles.
as i approach one year working i find that i'm comfortable and safe and most days that is good enough. other days not so much. but life is all about balance isn't it?
so for today when i'm working and i would rather be soaring....i will hold on to the beauty in my heart - where i keep my savings account just for this purpose.
things that make my heart sing: crunchy leaves, caramel apples, lea michael's voice, cool winds rustling the leaves, dimples, nephew's sleeping on my sofa, pugs on my lap, white chocolate mocha and warm poundcake straight from the oven.
