Fall 2021 begins September 22. Should I wait to experience its magic?
Should I wait to see it’s beautiful colors of orange, yellows, reds, greens and purple?
Should I wait to smell its fragrance of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and of course …pumpkins?
Should I wait to taste its delicious food and beverages like Pumpkin Pie and Pumpkin Spice Latte?
Should I wait to experience the unique blend of Happiness that it brings?
No, Nah, Nada, Nevah…on waiting!
So, at 5:45 A.M., I turned on our Fall Tree lights because I want to, I need to, I love to. Early Bird gets to catch the first batch of magic.
No one should wait for their magic to happen. With what is going on in our homes, community, country and the World, we need all the magic we can get…now!
18 months of the Pandemic taught me to live in the now and make my dreams happen with a sense of urgency.
“We’ve lived several months of Emergency Disaster. Some places still do. Knowing another Emergency is just around the corner, waiting for what matters and what’s important shouldn’t have to wait. Should be just as emergent.”
I should have done them sooner and more, but I’m grateful because God gave me plenty of chances to bring to life many of what my heart has always wanted.
I choose to celebrate Life bigger, sooner, longer, deeper, more spontaneous because I don’t know what happens to me and those I love next week, next month, next year.
This is my truth. Don’t care if it’s weird. Don’t care if it it doesn’t follow the norms. At the end of a dream, who felt happier, won. Who missed it, lost. And I’m tired of losing. I needed more wins.
Life has never been more urgent. No more waiting for good things to simply happen.
“I almost ran out of flicker to my flame. Then God showed me how dark, sad and cold it already is. My fire is taking baby steps. I’m not as young, patient, tolerant and forgiving as I used to be. I needed more time to heal. The wounds, too scarred, too deep. I needed more time to forgive and be braver on happiness. The hope, that my flame will burn brighter to light every corner and every room in my mind, heart and soul.”
