Sometimes, just for a brief moment, I forget what I'm doing here. I'm not furthering a career, I'm not biding my time until all the kids are gone and I can do my own things. I really believe I am doing the most important work of my life right this minute, and when I remember that I truly love my life. I saw this magazine on Design Mom today and this quote from there struck me to the core:
Our lives are the sum
Of each moment and interaction.
Each day we work, eat, laugh, teach, play, read, remember...
And work at it all again the next day.
Within seemingly small moments we find opportunity
To build relationships, develop character, find joy
For the price of our time.
Life's most essential possibilities are realized at home.
Where we share, teach, grow, learn, serve, give
Our best without praise or fanfare.
Because every effort, every moment matters
In the development of a person.
Nothing is really routine.
-Seeing The Everyday
What a true and beautiful statement.
