New Year - Don't Miss the Moments

I'm struggling to write this post because I know you're expecting me to say, "Happy New Year!" or "I'm so excited for 2014!"...but really, I haven't been all that excited about the new year. Not because I'm not looking forward to what God has in store for this year, but because I don't believe a new calendar year is the only time for new beginnings. Every morning we are given the gift of a new beginning, a clean slate, a fresh start. 

That's why I've never been a fan of new year's resolutions. I don't believe you have to wait for a new year to make changes in your life; you can begin making changes any time, even right now. After all, tomorrow isn't promised to us. All we have is today. I'm sure you've heard that before, but have you ever let it really sink in? I used to live for the future, for the life that I thought I wanted to live, until I realized that in living that way I was missing my life now - giggling and acting silly with my daughters, cuddling with my husband...all the beautiful, sweet moments that I'll forever cherish in my memory. I decided that instead of cashing in my present for a future that I may never see, I would choose to live today

Sure, it's important to set goals and have a vision for your life. But I beg you, don't miss today. Don't miss the moments. This life we're living is a precious gift. Don't waste it.

Every morning we are given the gift of a new beginning, a clean slate, a fresh start. 

Good morning!
