On the first day of 2015, I promised myself two “evolutions”. I chose to be true to myself by being mindful and embracing each moment of my life. Once again, they helped me evolve.

This year, I have chosen two….

1.  I will reclaim my moments

Last year felt like a whirlwind. In an instant, it was February. Moments later, I was mowing the lawn and picking plums. Moments after that, I was raking leaves and carving pumpkins. A moment later, the tree was lit, the gifts had been opened and it was New Year’s Eve.

This year, I will not have to say, “I don’t have time” because I will reclaim my lost moments and spend them doing more of the things that add joy to my life.

2. I will have no excuses

Last year, I was still holding onto a belief that I did not have time to do anything for myself. Yet, I managed to find time to try some things I have always wanted to try. It was fun and I learned more about myself.

This year, I defy my excuses by continuing to step out of my comfort zone where more new experiences await.  I read somewhere that, “Today’s moments are tomorrow’s memories.” Today, I will have as many fun moments as I can because they are a gift to me now and a gift to the me of tomorrow.

May 2016 bring more love, joy and happiness to your life
