Relax, Enjoy, and Breathe a Little More

Things have been a little bit hectic lately, and I often find myself out of breathe.  I am always rushing because of the many things that I need to do and tend to forget about what is important in my life,  When hubby arrived from a conference in Manila and bought me a pair of scrub suits and my favorite Krispy Kreme doughnuts, I forget to say "thank you".  And he asked me like I would ask my kids after being given something, "What will you say?"  Then it hit me, I have been acting exactly the way I was afraid I would turn out to be, someone uptight, always stressed and tensed.  This is definitely not me!  Am I a turning out to be a grinch?  I hope not, I wouldn't be spoiling Christmas, it's my favorite time of the year!!  So here I am, trying to loosen up, breathe more, relax and enjoying each moment that comes. 
"A lifetime is not what is between
the moments of birth and death.

A lifetime is one moment
Between my two little breaths.
The present, the here, the now,
That's all the life I get.
I live each moment in full,
In kindness, in peace, without regret."

Chade Meng, Taoist poet
