As we begin a new week, I think this is great advice. Since I have first started my blog this has been my theme, to recognize and enjoy all of the special moments that happen each day. My theme for this month is also awareness. It is so important to be aware of what makes us happy, what makes the day special . There are many things that happen in life that are out of our control but what is in our control is the way that we react to the people we meet or the situations that arise. This morning I wrote a list of the things that I want to do this week. It's my birthday week and I want to make it special. But what I realized is that most of the things that I wrote down, will be the same things I will write down next week and the week after, etc. Not because I don't do them but because they are important enough to me that I want to do them every week. These are the things that are part of my Reminder Journal, the journal that I keep to remind me of all of the things that are most important to me each day. If you were to write down what is most important to include in your life each and every day, what would be on that list? Before the week starts, I invite you to take some time to write down what you most want to include in your life this week. Then give yourself a wonderful gift of not only including those things in your week but taking the time to enjoy them.
