I too have fallen prey to Pininterest. While pinning ideas today, I found a list of questions for each day. I have decided that I would share these questions one at a time and post my answers and look forward to maybe some of you sharing your answers.
Day 1 Question – What is the thing you most wish you were great at?
When I first read this question, a million thoughts went swimming through my head. I wish I was great at being a mother, a friend, a daughter, and teacher. I wish I was great at dancing and singing.
But I think the one thing that I wish I was great at is living life to the fullest by living in the moment. I am one who rigidly schedules things. Down to the fact that I Sunday, I plan the entire meals for the entire week and when I receive a last-minute call to go out for dinner will usually turn it down because I have already defrosted or prepped dinner. The thought of getting in a car and driving to a vacation with no hotel booked freaks me out.
Do I think I should throw all planning and preparation to the wind? No! But do I think that sometimes I miss out on GREAT opportunities because I lacked spontaneity.
So the next time I am running around town and the princess says, “Can we stop and pick some flowers?” or a friend calls asking for company, I am throwing my schedule to the wind and living life in that moment.
We never are promised the next moment.
