It’s summer in the Pacific Northwest and that means it’s sunny when I wake up! I usually get out of bed around 5:30 AM, and most of the year it’s dark at that time, and depending on the time of year, it can also be rainy as well. Knowing this makes sunny summer morning that much more enjoyable.
Since I’ve started working from home, I’ve been making sure to get out and walk around the neighborhood before work begins. These sun-filled walks get me feeling good and charged up for the day ahead. I’m doing my best to take advantage of these beautiful mornings, knowing that they will soon be replaced by darker and even rainier ones.
My walks are a reminder for me to enjoy what I have while I have it. Before long, the warm sunny mornings will be memories, leaving me eagerly looking forward to the following summer, when they make their splendid return. For now, I’m doing my best to enjoy them while they’re here.
Do you have something in your life that will be, or could potentially be, gone soon? If so, be sure to enjoy it now, while you still have the opportunity. Because once it’s gone, you’ll be glad you did.
