I love Valentines Day! I wish I could spend all week making cupcakes, telling people how much I love them etc. I wish I could spend an exuberant amount of time decorating, planning parties related to V-day. But let’s be honest, I am a working mom and I I just don’t have that kind of time.
So I guess I will be celebrating Valentines day all year by doing simple acts of kindness for others, loving my family every day and cherishing life’s little pleasures.
Highlights for today:
* Being fully aware that I made the right choice. Fear can block us (even subconsciously) from making the best decision. I chose to completely surrender to any fear of the unknown while moving forward with my creative pursuits. It feels really good to surrender my frustration, fears and anxiousness. And instead I continue to be optimistic that I made the right choice. And all good things come to those who “wait”. But instead of the word “wait”; I choose to say “All good things come to those who believe, persevere and trust.”
* I made Vegan cupcakes that actually taste great! (at least to me!) Except that they fell apart while removing them from the pan. Bummer! Instead of lamenting over my cupcakes; I decided to make the best of it. I put several cupcakes together to make small hearts. That worked and as for the crumbles, they will be good in pudding, ice cream etc…
* Just feeling grateful overall. I had a great time with my cousin today and playing with Olivia (my daughter). Grateful for the small moments which feel like anything but small.
And lastly, I wanted to share some new lyrics with you. These lyrics came to me while singing with my daughter in living room last night.
Here is the latest lyrics of a new song idea, dedicated to my daughter Olivia Daisy.
My Everyday (Copyrights 2013)
You’re my sun on a Monday
You’re my rain on a Tuesday
You’re my clouds on a Wednesday
And my wind on a Thursday
Even Friday through Sunday
As long as we are still playing together
It doesn’t matter the weather
Because you’re my everyday
You’re my every day
I wouldn’t have it any other way
Let’s roll around in the dirt
And throw the leaves in the waterfall
Because it doesn’t matter what we do
As long as I have you
As long as I have you
