Carpe Diem

Wake up and live
— Bob Marley
Moments before the sun rose up over the horizon.

Moments before the sun rose up over the horizon.

I was just talking to the girls last night about how I'm in this in-between phase in my life.  My struggle is this... Do I wallow in depression because I don't have steady work yet, or do I seize the moment and enjoy this time I have before I land that awesome job.  I believe time management is important, but what's more important is the frequency of energy that I'm emitting.  I'm a firm believer in the whole power of attraction philosophy, but fight to stay on top of positive thinking.

My intuition tells me this.

  • Live life NOW

  • "Act" like you are living the life you envision yourself leading

  • When I feel like I'm starting to slip into the negative, go and do something that brings me joy

I'm trying my best to do all of that by working on what I love.  Working on my blog, studying yoga, exploring the woods to capture some great images, and writing.  

I love that my daughter Alley heard me loud and clear last night in the car (they do sometimes listen), because she was the one to recommend hiking up to the Fire Tower on the Appalachian Trail this morning to witness the sunrise.  Being honest with my girls has always been a top priority and I want them to hear how I'm handling things.  I want them to know all of me, even the parts that I struggle with. Although I do like to think that they think I'm perfect.  

So, this hike meant a lot to me.  Seize the moment and live everyday like it's you last.  


Happiness, not in another place but this place...not for another hour, but this hour.
— Walt Whitman

This is what it's all about...
