Living Life...a new perspective and a sweet award!

Today I actually looked at my calendar for the month of July. All I can say is, oh my gosh. Have I overbooked myself? Am I stretching myself too thin? When will I have time for just me? Then I looked again. I looked at my calender with a new perspective. I'm living life! Yes, that's exactly what I'm doing...living life...and it's wonderful!

This weekend....an all day yoga retreat in Castlerock with my wonderful friend, Thea.


Breathe...

The following week/weekend, horse camp with my girlfriend Debbie and, of course, Ari and Magic....


Breathe...inhale...and release...

The following weekend, Country Classics and Wine Festival (can't wait for this one).


Breathe...inhale....release...relax your shoulders, Michelle, just like the yoga retreat taught you...

And then off to see a play with Thea about me because I will be crazy at this point. Okay, kidding...in all seriousness this play actually looks quite interesting.

And in between all that volunteering, horse riding lessons and celebrating birthdays with good friends! I'm nuts....seriously, I must be nuts to fit this all in amidst work and getting things done around here, BUT, I'm going to look at it as living life. We all need to think more like that. Carpe Diem! Isn't that what they say? Now watch I'll next be posting about "being in a funk." LOL!

Also, I got this wonderful award from sweet, sweet Ronda over at A Peachy Keen Life. Thank you so much Ronda!! Ronda has a heart of gold...seriously. Go over and read her blog. She has a wonderful life...oh and her husband is a sweetie. He just treated her to a surprise getaway. Now that is a good man!

It is daunting to look at a filled calendar ahead of time like that, but if it is things and people you enjoy and will refresh you then it all sounds good. I fell that when the calendar is booked with "have to's" not "want to's" that's when it becomes a problem. Enjoy!!!

Michelle dear, you do lead a very full, but very exciting and fulfilling life! If you're ever too busy to cater to Mr. Quincy's every whim, I'll help out, OK? ;) Have a lovely time with all your fun activities!

Sounds like a fun July! There's always lots to do in Summer.

Ronda said...

Good Mornin' Michelle,

I am glad that your life is a full and happy one. That is such a blessing, especially when we can look at a full schedule and instead of finding something negative about being busy, we choose to look at it in a positive light. Having a "full" life is a real blessing when using a good and happy attitude and thankful heart.

Blessings to you and your full and happy life my sweet friend.

Thank you for your kind and loving words about me. You are most kind.

Have a fabulous weekend my dear.

Love & Prayers,
Ronda
