My two year work anniversary has come and gone. It could as well be a lifetime for my personality. I thought I might celebrate, but due to a few moving pieces on the day, it was best left as a silent celebration. I always reflect back (too much) and review… assess… and change. I firmly believe in the phrase, you can’t expect different results if you keep doing the same thing. You have to keep taking steps forward, you have to evolve, you have to challenge your limits, you have to seek adventure.
In a conversation I had over the weekend with my I-will-conquer-and-save-the-planet-daughter, she asked me…”but Mommy, does it spark joy?” A little ‘Marie Kondo’, but it did get me thinking. Life is too short to waste, too short to wait. Time is valuable, every minute counts.
Go out and do what you love, immerse yourself in whatever inspires you. Feed your sole. Have those conversations you are putting off. Read poetry, listen to the music that makes you dance. Kiss that boy, buy that dress.
All we have is now, so we should make sure it sparks joy, or move to something that does.
