Enjoy the season that we are in the midst of now. Too many people wish to fast forward time and skip to the next season. I hear people say....it's so cold now, I can't wait for the warmer weather. Or .....I hate this heat and can't wait for fall. I now choose to enjoy the season for what it is. What is better in the winter than curling up in a blanket with a cup of hot tea and reading a treasured book or working on some needlework? Watching an old movie? Cooking soup and baking bread? Or in the spring noticing the first buds on the trees that have laid dormant all winter waiting for their rebirth? The brilliant green of those first springtime leaves once they do come out?
Time goes fast enough without pushing it along and always in the back of our minds wanting something else. Enjoy the moment, live in the moment. This applies to many areas of our lives. People say when I get a better job, I'll do this. When I lose weight, I'll do that. I've been guilty of these things myself. Although I'm not making any New Years Resolutions I'd like to take the time to enjoy the moment, put the past behind me and not worry so much about the future. Things always have a way of working themselves out. Everything is a learning experience. Everything happens for a reason. In the end, we will know and understand it all.
