Flying: Lesson 2

WALK ON.

Have you noticed that the world doesn't stop and wait for you to unpack / get healthy / clean your house / decorate / have everything perfect / do everything you were hoping to do first ?  And do you know what?  I think it's a GOOD THING.  It teaches me to just walk on.  Stop waiting to do those things I have been thinking about or people we want to have over.  This past week we had the opportunity to have two families over for dinner and the missionaries as well.  I probably should have waited until the dining room was put together, or until I knew where all the glasses were or until I had a better plan for what I was serving.  Yet if I had waited I would have missed out on all the laughing, conversation, friendship and just plain fun our families had together.  Too many of my ideas perish in my head, or as intentions that never came to fruition.  It's time to stop WAITING and just start today to do something.  Why wait for perfection?  IT DOESN'T EXIST.  The perfect moment isn't a reality.  What is real is making something happen each day - turning my intentions into actions.  That makes me feel like flying!

happy week.

  3. Amazing. You're right. I put off all of those things because of X, Y, Z. None of them matter. Experiences matter.
