Life can seem so fleeting. I can miss so much.
I’m spending the weekend visiting one of my most favorite people in the world, and I realize I have a choice. A choice to drift through the day, and this experience, without paying attention, or a choice to be present and suck the marrow out of each moment, delighting and enjoying and savoring.
I’m trying to choose the later.
I’m trying to notice and partake in all around me, while committing the fun I’m having and the love I’m feeling to some sort of memory. I’m trying to flow and not hold on too tightly, while also holding on enough to, again, suck out the marrow.
And I’m trying not to try.
Basically my focus is to choose love. To remember the love I have for this person. To relish their love for me. To laugh and play and bask.
To choose love.
I have the option to choose love when I’m surrounded with love, to let it all really, really, really sink in. And I have the option to choose love when I’m faced with challenge, or pain. To let the love I soaked up in my “good” moments saturate my tougher moments.
I choose love. I choose love. I choose love.
I have to go now – to enjoy and love some more.
I’d love to hear your thoughts, and please share this post with others if it resonates with you!
