Thought for Thursday {Live for Today}

Pinned Image

Looking forward to 2012, I have many hopes, dreams, plans and goals. One of the things I want to do, to work on me, is to worry a little less and try to enjoy the every day moments more. I feel like I spend a lot of time making rules, getting onto kids, being frustrated, cleaning up and handing out consequences. Mind you, a tiger can't change it's stripes, I'm aware of this. But I would like to learn to ease up on myself and my family a tad more and live in the present. I would hate to wake up one day, 50 years from now, and realize that I have a clean house and kids with a Facebook page I can be proud of, but that I neglected the relationships and all the small moments that make the special memories. David is quite skeptical - he knows me pretty well. However, I'm not making some huge vow to change myself completely and never worry, nag, complain or yell again. I'm just going to try to remind myself to enjoy the laughter, the messes we make when we are spending time as a family and to celebrate the small things in our life.

So, it's your turn! What are you thinking this last Thursday in 2011? Can you believe it's the last Thursday in 2011? Next time we meet up for Thought for Thursday, we will be in a new year! Are you excited? I know I am!
