Quote of the Week: Where Are You?

Quote of the Week: October 29, 2012
I suppose it's not all that surprising that I would choose something like this right after coming back from a weekend vacation, but bear with me. I think I may have had a few minor revelations in the last two days. So, here's what I've come to realize...

No matter where you go or where you end up, you're you. You being you will make wherever you are and what you experience there, distinctly your own. So, take advantage of any situation and, if possible, try to enjoy it. If it's fantastic, take it all in and let it inspire you. If it's boring, do something and take action to make your surroundings inspiring. What you do will make all the difference with where you are. If you're at the dentist to get a root canal, you're excused from this exercise.

I realized this weekend that pools & hot tubs, great weather, expertly landscaped grounds, and oversized chess boards are wonderful, but I experienced all of it in the way I needed to experience it. I got to admire my husband from afar while he floated in the pool with reckless abandon and remind myself how lucky I am (and how handsome he is.) I ran across vast croquet fields with my dog like a child. I actually took a nap (which is alarming, since I'm usually so neurotic about getting things done that me considering a nap is about as likely as me considering dancing on glass shards.) You get the idea.

Now, I need to remember this quote and take advantage of wherever I am. It's not something that I should be doing only when I'm on vacation.

Hope you all have a wonderful week and enjoy yourself, wherever you are. xo!

Note: To those who will be experiencing Hurricane Sandy on the east coast, be safe!
