I’ve lived in the past in my mind for more of my life than not. It has been a source of much pain and heartache.
I am making a commitment today to be much more mindful of the present, in the future.
I have an incredible life. I have three healthy children and a husband who dotes on my every whim, practically. I have a beautiful home and reliable, trendy transportation.
I am blessed with the opportunity to use top-of-the-line photo gear as my gear of choice in my photo pursuits. I’ve had free range over the years to explore the lenses out there and have settled into the lens set and the cameras that I love.
We have two healthy, wonderful dogs that keep us entertained and love on us when we are sad or sick or when we just feel like cuddling or playing.
We have food in our pantry and refrigerator. We have working appliances. We have the luxury of things like good health insurance.
I have four good girlfriends who have proven they are true friends and will be there, in good times and bad.
I need to remember these things and keep them at the front of my mind daily.
I need to remember that I am not defined by my past. Every day is a fresh start to do something good with my resources at hand.
I can look forward, resting easy that the past is done.
I can be mindful.
