It wasn't a dramatic sunset, just soft faded blues and pinks, that grew deeper and darker as the sun slipped out of sight.
I could have gone to the movies with friends tonight. Instead, I opted to stay home and take care of some crabby gray-haired to-do's and head off a few youngsters that I can tell will be troublemakers if I don't put them in their place now.
My challenge these days is time management, making sure I use that valuable resource in the best way possible, taking care of myself as well as the never-ending, ever-increasing, to-do's that come with learning a new industry, building a new business, while trying to maintain the ones I've already got going...and have a life.
And that's why I poured a glass of wine and headed out to the back deck to my rocking chair tonight to take a deep breath, just as the sky started it's quiet show...
Just a thirty minute investment that reaped the energy and motivation I needed to finish a project.
(Thank you to my sweet friend, Ann, who texted me a portion of the 59th Street Bridge Song lyrics this morning when I told her how busy I had been lately...reminding me to at least stop a minute to watch a sunset.)
Life, I love you. All is groovy.
