I wrote this in my journal a while back and I keep flipping to it as a reminder... Sometimes I need that kick in the pants to remember to really take each day as something to cherish and something to be grateful for. Especially during these last winter months when it's nothing but gray and cold and chilling outside. (bleck! Give me warmth!) Living out each moment can be hard! But I keep thinking about what it feels like when I am really dipping in deep... really paying attention to what I am doing, not just going through the motions.

Conversations are more intense. My work is more alive. Even the air seems sweeter! It feels like things are going the way they are supposed to... Things just feel magical.

I wonder what magic I'll stir up today...

Things I'm grateful for at this precise moment: - the sun is out today (even if it's freezing) - honey nut cheerios - having lunch with some old pals yesterday - an understanding and all embracing hug from colin - my dark gray knee socks - pink! - grapefruit essential oil - the fact that my brother and I talk all the time. It's so nice to have him back! - dreaming of the beach two nights in a row...
