celebrate the temporary
don't wait until tomorrow
live today

celebrate the simple things
enjoy the butterfly
embrace the snow
run with the ocean
delight in trees
or a single flower
go barefoot in the wet grass

don't wait
until all the problems are solved
or all the bills are paid
you will wait forever
eternity will come and go
and you will still be waiting

live in the now
with all the problems
and its agonies
with its joy
and its pain
your despair
your anger
it means you're alive

look closer
breathe deeper
stand taller
stop grieving the past

there is joy and beauty
today
it is temporary
here now and gone
so celebrate it
while you can

celebrate the temporary

(this is one of my favorite poems + i think i'll post it every new year as a reminder)

Happy New Year Mod MOM!!!

I need to remember this and breathe deeper and enjoy my growing family and friends more than worry

Awesome!

I was just going to say exactly what "Anonymous" said. :)

That is an important poem to hear. Those sentiments can be so easy to agree with and yet still not live. So may we all work on it in the now & live it - it will bring us more living joy :)

I love your blog & have been taking peeks for a while now. How did you get started in this blog niche? And how do you get your giveaways? I am in the middle of starting a design oriented blog of my own, so I was just curious.

Thanks for sharing!!

So get a hold of yourself, and start knowing about this incredible Yoga and Meditation. What you should be doing, first of all, is to gather much more information, with this article you will be able of getting to know a bit about yoga and meditation, however, there are tons of things to learn about yoga and meditation, and you could really be benefited by knowledge in this field before going to take classes or buying books.

Great Blog Mommy. Thanks for everything :-)

Great reminder!

Love the poem. Simple yet hits deep within. We all need a reminder on most days as we keep forgetting we're alive and to be thankful for that. It's a gift. My favorite line: "look closer; breathe deeper; stand taller;
stop grieving the past"
It's like a step, another step and one more step closer to taking things on a deeper level rather than being lost in the past.
