I am experiencing one of those moments in life where major things are happening simultaneously. Since this life is self-driven its no surprise that this "activity concerto" is by design. As I wrap up a major design project and button up a handful of smaller ones I'm beginning to see the bright light at the end of the tunnel.
And it couldn't be happening at a better time. This weekend marked the kickoff of our American summer. We hosted a houseful of friends and family, grilled like Bobby Flay, entertained like Martha and pumped up the jams like Tiesto.
It's time for maxi dresses and mini-bikinis... Al fresco meals and evening swims. Armed with a small handful of fabulous bathing suits, much more free time and a laser-like focus on enjoying life "in the moment" I'm ready for what summer holds in store.
In preparation for these projects wrapping up I've been defragging my life. Closets have been purged, drawers are organized to Pinterest-like perfection, donations have been dropped, books returned and thank you cards written.
It's as if I've been on hyperdrive heading towards this idyllic moment when my "new life" begins. And although the cast if characters around me remains the same (husband, daughters, friends, family...) the main character in this story (moi) has undergone a dramatic, albeit private, transformation. I have renewed purpose, restored passion and specific focus on the exciting future ahead.
All that's left to do now is hold summer's hand, peer at the sparkling waters below... and leap.
