At first I thought it would be good idea to begin this post by listing reasons why it's been over 2 months since my last post but honestly I really couldn't think of any reason other than I have just been living in the moment.
As soon as school ended I held the 2nd Annual I Love Me Unconditionally! Summer Workshop and it was a huge success! The daily workshops consisted of engaging and relevant topics lead by positive female role mentors to help educate and empower 8 young ladies. I had so much fun with the girls and I guess I could have written a post about it then but....I didn't. Instead I took the time to reflect on the amazing week and lived in the moment.
My family and I went to a vacation to St. Maarten. Every night we sat on the beach and listen to the waves as we talked and laughed. On one of the nights I watched my hubby teach my daughter how to skip rocks in the water. As I watched this perfect bonding moment I began to get upset because I didn't bring my camera to the beach that night so I can take pictures of this precious father/daughter time. Then I stopped and lived in the moment and it was amazing.
This summer is all about taking it all in as I enjoy every.last.minute of it because let's face it before I know it September and I will once again be busy with students, lesson plans and schedules and living in the moment will become a little more difficult.
I even started Pilates and Yoga classes- which is really teaching me to shut out distractions and just savor the moment I am in. Not to mention I am the most flexible I have been in years but I digress.
Living in the moment isn't always easy for me because sometimes life can get so busy that I forget to stop.breathe and enjoy the little things in my life that usually bring the most happiness.
So I guess the reason that I have been missing in action in the blogsphere is because I am learning to be present in my life and I can't think of a better reason than that!
