"just for today"
(c) julie king
back in february 2009 i posted a poem titled "just for today". a couple of weekends ago i added a bit of the poem to the altered photo above to create a unique, inspirational piece of art. parts of the poem are a struggle for me to live, i must admit. i need reminders in my life to not take the people i love for granted. feeling blessed on the other hand is very easy for me. i find joy everywhere and never hesitate to say how very blessed i am. the hardest part is learning to want less. i'm not talking about material things, although i am truly blessed in that area as well. i'm talking about more living, more sunshine, more time with loved ones. it never seems to be enough for me. that feeling always has me longing to retire and spend my time being creative and giving back to the world. i need to remind myself to live "just for today" and not longing for what i can't have right now.
not to self: practice what you preach!
"just for today" photographic print is available in my etsy shop.
