Party On!


Day 2 of 2018 and here’s what’s come to me and written itself.

Need I remind you (and me for that matter) that we only have today in which to live?  Sometimes I find that time flies by and I realize that I have let days go by without living.  What does that mean exactly?  Well, it probably means different things to each of us, but for me, it means that my days sometimes are filled with mundane routine and there’s not even a small spark of newness to them.

I wonder if when the watch the reel of our lives when we get to the other side, if we will feel like that time was wasted or if we will realize that there was something important about days that feel spark-less?

Will we run through the Rolodex of days gone by that seemingly had no spark and berate ourselves?  Or will be understand that those days had meaning because they were when we were experiencing, accepting and processing life in a quieter way?

I have friends who live life to the fullest all the time.  They are busy, busy, busy – running here and there with their party lights on full tilt.  It amazes me how they can be on so much of the time.  Perhaps it is my chronic fatigue that plagues me that I don’t have that type of energy all the time.  Perhaps it is because I can become introspective and often need to go within to process life experiences so that I can come out with enthusiasm for life again after I’ve been hurt.  How do you live your life?

I love to hear how people deal with life experiences differently.  I love how relationships change.  I am an avid people-watcher and I enjoy learning about how people think and what leads them to their actions.  Connecting with others makes me happy and gives me a feeling of divine purpose.  Most of us by this age have experienced many different life experiences, good and bad.  To connect with someone who understands what you are going through because they have had a similar experience is like finding a golden nugget, especially when you are both open to share freely.

So what’s my point?  Obviously, I don’t know.  This is just another post which has written itself and I allowed the words to flow from my fingers to the keyboard.  If any of this resonates with you, please let me know.

Shine On!

  1. It resonates with me. I have a tendency to feel guilty about “wasted” “spark-less” days but maybe I shouldn’t. As you say, some of us have to go within to process but it is often by connecting with others that we feel most truly alive. Party on!

  2. Oh…I get it!!
    And I treasure the time we have spent together and the connection we have. Sending you sweet blessings and hopes that the New Year is full of love, peace, joy, and all the little things your heart desires!!!<3

  3. I don’t think we are all supposed to experience life the same way. We are all different so I stopped measuring myself by other’s yardstick. I pay attention to my moments each day and always give each day my best. Sometimes my best is just resting and reflecting. As long as my words and thoughts are kind, I call it a great day. You brought up a good conversation here. Just enjoy your day, whatever it brings. It’s always a mixed bag,

    • I agree Marlene. I am just going with the flow. But it’s remarkable to me how some just party on and I am not that way. I am honoring who I am, but I just thought it was an interesting topic and since it wrote itself, I figured it might resonate with others. Have a lovely day yourself! ♥

  4. We are going where we need to I think Yvonne. Those overly idle moments may be just moments of reverie, but reverie we need to digest something. They are most certainly countered by the many busy, busy moments that we find ourselves in. Each have their part to play 😀 ❤

  5. Thought provoking post! Nice one! I have survived two potentially life threatening illnesses and since then I have always tried to live life every day. Not necessarily being busy busy busy but just by appreciating the fact that I was alive and I should make the most of each day.

    • I love your philosophy of life Anne and I’m sorry that you have had 2 potentially life threatening illnesses but I’m ever grateful you are still here! What a blessing you are! Keep shining and sparkling for us all! ♥
