Being Here

Elvis and Rocks and Mint and Nasturtiums...these are a few of my favorite things.
Elvis and Rocks and Mint and Nasturtiums…these are a few of my favorite things. Here. Now.

On the good days I smile and think about how lucky I am to be here.  On the bad days, I despair and whine about how unlucky I am to have ended up here.

Where is here?

Here in my head, here in my body, here in my heart, here in my life!  Here is Orange, Virginia.  I have been taking my life for granted, just waiting and wishing for all the different threads of my life to weave together and point me in a direction.  As if here and now is simply a dress rehearsal, and my real life will start tomorrow.  But tomorrow comes, and I still make lazy choices as if each moment is not a precious gift.

It is time to begin. Begin what?  Something.  Anything.

But first I think I will just begin by being HERE. Be present and show up to my own life with my best self ready to learn and grow.  Begin living a life that matters right here. Right here in Orange, Virginia. Right Now.  My first blog post ever…at least it is a start…
