Focus on Enjoy the Moment

I have 3 words I chose to represent what I wanted to focus on this year. ENJOY THE MOMENT! So, here it is February and I’m already struggling with my focus. My whole life has been a roller coaster ride. As I got older and was able to take control of my life I thought things would mellow out a little. Um, not so much! I guess life is just a roller coaster. Don’t get me wrong, I love roller coasters but sometimes I’d like to be on the kiddie ride and not experience such huge ups and downs.

And then I think about the small, sweet, special moments that happen and I don’t want to lose sight of those and let the moments pass without me recognizing them. I am truly blessed and have so much to be thankful for, even when I feel like I’m going down a steep hill at 60 mph. I need to keep my focus, I chose Enjoy the Moment for a reason. The more sweet moments I recognize the easier it will be for me to recognize even more.

I like visual reminders so I’ve made a few things to help me remember my focus. I have a sticky note on my bathroom mirror, one in the car and one in my closet. Apparently those are the places I spend most of my time. I wrote it on the chalkboard door leading to the garage and now I made it in vinyl for the front of my day planner. I figured since I look at my day planner multiple times throughout the day it would be the perfect place for my focus words.

Choose Happy is my phrase. 2012 was the hardest year for me and my family, but through it all I learned so much. Mostly, how amazingly faithful God is, but also that we have a choice to be in the bitter barn or go play in the hay! This girl wants to play in the hay so I choose happy!

I am also a visual person and I like these reminders during the day. I feel like I rush my kids a lot, and I am not sure why. Maybe years of working at a daycare that focused on staying on schedule more then the schedule of the kids, but I really want to work on this. I have always wanted to post little reminders around the house but I was always self conscious that hubby or others that come to the house would think I am weird. Maybe if I made a nice saying and framed it, then it would look like decor right? Thanks for the post, it really got me thinking.

My word for this year is Reframing and I’m going to start a blog to help me reframe my life and the things in it!

My word is FOCUS. I hope you are doing ok, Leanne. Sounds like a rough patch…I will say a prayer for you tonight.

My phrase is a little longer but it is…creating the life I want to live.
