It’s the middle of the week and my mind is filled with a list of experiences for my family to pursue in 2017. Not a goal list mind you, an experience list. A list of activities, people and places we should participate in for meaningful and comical memories.
As I make this list, I am considering how I can make each interaction fun and appealing to their various ages. Then a realization occurs, the most important aspect of the plan is to do it. Make the plan and enjoy the adventure. I don’t want to focus on worries that I eventually miss the fun and the love that surrounds me.
This is my wish for you today. Focus on making life a new experience each day instead of worrying about what could or did happen. The only good worry can do is make you exist instead of making you truly live.
