I love the movie Groundhog Day. I think it’s really funny but very profound. It asks a universal question, do we live the same day every day, or are we truly living a life?
I’m trying to be more mindful this year. I’m not counting the days until the next vacation, and I’m not Thanking God It’s Friday. I’m being present in each day, and thankful for it. Days I expect to be easy rarely are and days I assume will be difficult surprisingly are not. I’m open to the randomness each day can bring, and I’m finding the joy in each one of them.
We are lucky and blessed to have the lives we do for many reasons, but also because we have a freedom and the opportunity to make it better. I’m not sleep walking through life. I’m going to stay awake and aware of the world and the people around me.
It doesn’t matter to me what some groundhog does. I can enjoy six more weeks of winter anyway.
