Life is too short not to love every moment. Not to find the love even when it's difficult. Not to get caught up in negativity or stress. It's easy to forget life is short, it's easy to get caught up in meaningless things that in the big scheme don't matter. I once read somewhere that if it doesn't matter in 5 years, why waste 5 minutes now. Time is precious, and so are everyday moments. Things may seem to be ordinary, but make the ordinary come alive, make them extraordinary.
Ethan and I have been driving in Toronto and in traffic, and it's not fun. But he is great, and we enjoy music while we drive. The other day, we were stopped at a light on the corner right next to the sidewalk with our music loud, singing and dancing with the windows down and people all around, it was heavenly. I could feel good energy all around us. There was a police officer on the corner, and he spotted us of course, and started playing peek a boo with Ethan, it was the sweetest thing. Ethan being as playful as he is, tried to hide his giggling face. A few blocks down, we spotted a motorcycle two lanes away while stopped at another light, and next to us was a convertible. Ethan was staring at the bike (he loves all types of transportation), the biker lifted his helmet visor and spotted Ethan from the window smiling and pointing at him, so he waved and smiled back until the light turned green. Ethan was overjoyed, and the convertible next to us saw all this, and smiled to Ethan too.
These are the moments, find the love. Find the love in terrible moments, boring moments, disappointing moments, there is always love to be found, love to be had. I'm thankful for humanity and for others finding and showing the love. We are all in this world together. If we lead with love, we can never go wrong.
Peace & love.
