I used to think I needed to live each day to the fullest.  Whenever I check in with myself on this aspect, I tend to feel really disappointed with myself.  I could have done more, I wasted time there, I didn't do that... I am sure I could go on & on.

 But this afternoon, as I was reading my favorite blogger's recent happenings, I had a kaleidoscope experience.

I used to think I needed to fill my day up chock full of activities or else I wouldn't truly be living.  (No wonder I felt so guilty).  But this afternoon, I realized it's not that I "do" each day to the fullest, but enjoy each day to the fullest.  Enjoying each day to the fullest is so much easier - it just seems to take the pressure out of it... I shouldn't feel guilty about my newest habit of afternoon naps or staying in & reading my book with a bowl of oatmeal.

Here's to enjoying each day of the rest of my life!

Thanks Laura!
