This month I will take the time to appreciate each day. July went by with a blur and a lot of unhappy and unwanted emotions but I will let go of all that. I will enjoy the long days and the hot, hot heat that means summer isn’t quite over yet. I will live in the moment: the dips in the pool, the late mornings and the early ones, the watering of plants on the patio at dusk. I will forget those things I cannot control and embrace the ones I can, like being happy. I will make the choice to be happy because it is summer and I am 26 and I am very lucky. I will forget about September’s mile long to-do list when it’s time to relax because there is simply nothing to be done about it at that moment. I will take the time to drink in the great things happening right in front of me. Here we go, August, no regrets.
