I started the day with the usual workout – run, then a little strength training and stretching. And then, since I need to wash my hair today anyway, I dove in the pool. I sat in the sun afterwards feeling so guilty/lucky and I meditated on how fast everything changes. It’s best to steal as many fleeting moments of joy as you can – when you can. It was cooler and less humid than yesterday and the kids were in school and the husband was off, I actually don’t know where, so I sat and all I could hear was birds chirping. I thought to myself, how did I get to be here? A lot of luck and grace and some work on my part.

Let’s slow down once a day and do something that we don’t feel like we deserve. (But we actually do). And just enjoy it. Just for a few minutes. I won’t tell.

Okay. Now, get to work!
