I'm tired of waiting for someday.
For someone else to make something happen.
I feel like I'm spending too much time thinking instead of doing.
“Oh, I'd like to ___(insert activity of some sort____. Someday.”
Someday is today.
Or any day.
Because my word for 2015? Do.
For the last several New Year's Eves, I've lamented our lack of plans. Halloween, too. The holidays seem to sneak up on us, and we find ourselves sitting at home, or scrambling to find something to do the day before.
I'm throwing a party for NYE into 2016.
(Jamie's going to saber a bottle of champagne, he just informed me. He's watching YouTube videos and everything)
I'm going to plan a wine tasting day with some friends this summer.
I'm going to stop waiting for someday and take advantage of today.
2014 brought a lot of reality awfully close. Jennifer died, and her mom is changing the world. #ForThemBecauseofHer has made me a different mom. A better mom. I say yes more, because we don't know when the last day could be.
We'll have more slumber parties, and more dance parties. More friends over for dinner, and I'll reach out to people more. I'll do more laundry. I'll go in more bounce houses and sing more songs “one more time, Mommy!” I'll laugh at jokes that grew weary a dozen tellings ago, I'll do my best.
I'll publish all the draft posts that are on here, polish them up and put them out there. Because this is the year doing. I'll bake more bread, and more cookies. I'll write more for me, and take more photos. I'll DO more with the days I've been given.
What are you going to do?
