To love more.
To smile at a stranger every day. To make eye contact.
I promise to be in each moment.
No more multi-tasking or sharing myself out. If I’m talking to you, that is all I will be doing. If we’re playing a game, I will not be secretly lost in thought.
And when I mess up (because hey, I’m new at this and I know it will happen) no more feeling guilty. Yes I’ll say sorry and admit my mistakes. But no more introspection, beating myself up with ‘if onlys’ and hanging onto stuff that I should have dropped years ago.
(Because come on, if I really believe in Jesus, what’s the deal?!?)
Every day is a gift and I commit to finding the treasure in each one.
(Even on those days when it seems to be hidden really, really deep!)
Smile more. Cry. Feel.
Because the greatest of these is love.
