I have a new year's resolution, a month and a couple days early ... I really want to appreciate right now. always. I've gotten better at it over the years... so much of the time I was worried about not being "there yet," that I missed a lot.  I think you always want to move forward, but I think you're allowed to enjoy the process of it all. Time and again, some of the best things have happened when I'm not asking or expeting anything ~
