One of the things those of you that have been following me know is that I have been trying to work on living the moment to the fullest. This is not something that comes easy to me as, I am a very detailed scheduler and often miss out on things because it isn’t on the agenda.
While out grocery shopping the other day, this book caught my eye. I took it off the shelf opened the front cover and read the first poem.
First I was dying to finish high school and start college.
And then I was dying to finish college and start working.
And then I was dying to marry and have children.
And then I was dying for my children to grow old enough so I could go back to my career.
And then I was dying to retire.
And now I am dying…
and suddenly realize that I forgot to live.
So I splurged on myself and spent $13 on myself because this book combined something I needed and something I loved.
When I was a little girl one of my greatest desires was to be a ballerina, unfortunately when I was 3 years old I suffered a significant injury to my left leg and according to the doctor was not allowed to dance. That is part of the reason I enjoy watching my daughter dance.
