Baby Steps

I really just need to start writing and stay writing. I always seem to go in spells...and thats no good when you need to stay on top of getting your thoughts out of your head and onto paper. (Cyber paper? Same principle.)

My birthday was yesterday. I'm the grand old/young age of 19. The years are really flying by; this is my last teenage year! Before I know it my twenties will be gone too. I really want to learn to live every day--truly live it. I suppose that is my new years resolution. To find a way to live my days to the fullest and not get trapped in the mundane drag of commonplace doings.

Maybe what I need to do is not write such long posts--then I might do more of them. Just a few paragraphs is a good place to start. Just like learning to live a few hours every day--or even one activity a day--will be the way to learn to live every moment of every day. Instead of worrying about jumping right to perfect, I need to start small. Like the baby steps I took about 17 and a half years ago, I'll take little steps now to achieving a better way of life.

Teach us to make the most of our time, so that we may grow in wisdom. -Psalm 90:12

Hi Tori~

First off Tori is my youngest daughters name & she just turned 19 in October!

Third~ Do just that...take little steps and enjoy every moment of everyday!! Take it one minute at a time.

Life really does "fly" by!! My husband & I have always told our girls to always smile (even through the bad) because you never know what you'll miss)and before you know it your 30 and thinking where did the time go?!!
