Stop, Take Stock, And Acknowledge

“MOTHER TIME: Life goes by so very fast, my dears, and taking the time to reflect, even once a year, slows things down. We zoom past so many seconds, minutes, hours, killing them with the frantic way we live that it’s important we take at least this one collective sigh and stop, take stock, and acknowledge our place in time before diving back into the melee. Midnight on New Year’s Eve is a unique kind of magic where, just for a moment, the past and the future exist at once in the present. Whether we’re aware of it or not, as we countdown together to it, we’re sharing the burden of our history and committing to the promise of tomorrow.”
― Hillary DePiano, New Year’s Thieve

Yes, life goes by way too fast. I find myself more and more wondering how it’s possible that at this stage in my life my kids are grown and my parents have left this world. It seems only yesterday that my husband and I were starting our life together and my children were babies. However, I’m thankful for the wisdom I’ve acquired throughout the years and the opportunity to focus on what’s important and to let everything else go. You only have this small window in life to get it right and that should be your number one resolution.
