Blog after Sandy

I have to admit, I’m feeling a little out of sorts as I write this.  My state, the state of New Jersey, has been turned upside down this week.  I’ve been incredibly lucky:  I got my power back within a few days, the huge trees that fell on my property fell INTO the woods, my basement is dry, and most importantly my family is safe.

Others have not been so lucky, and I struggle to find some meaning in it all.  What can I learn, or be reminded of in situations like this?

Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:

  • Hug the ones you love regularly and tell them how you feel about them.
  • Be grateful for your friends and let them know you care.
  • Plan ahead whenever possible.
  • Always appreciate the little things (you know, like how a light goes on when you flip a switch).
  • Seize the moments you do have and make them count!

Time is too important to waste.  There is no time like now to live my best life.  And no time like now for you to live yours.

In the meantime, be safe, stay warm, and by all means, make what you want to happen in your life, HAPPEN!
