It's been a hectic, busy couple of weeks. I was in Indianapolis for a presentation and a tornado passed by the hotel. I learned square breathing. I finished my blueberry painting that had been sitting on my coffee table for about a month. I have been doodling like there is no tomorrow. I am addicted to Penny Dreadful and I have been learning to be more forgiving.
I think most of all, I have really been thinking about my life and learning to live in the moment, learning to relinquish control. I came to the realization that the biggest difference between the 17 year old me and the 37 year old me is that at 17, I did not try to control life, manage life. I couldn't. And nonetheless, life was so much more magical.
When I was a teenager life was unfolding in front of me. Therefore, all I could do was live it. As an adult, I feel I want to manage life, instead of living it as a journey that is still unfolding in front of me. I have decided there is no reason life can't be as magical and surprising now as it was in my teens.
So what do you do to keep the magic alive in your life?
