Life Is A Party February 7, 2021

Posted by nrhatch in Happiness, Humor, Life Balance, Mindfulness.

Live a life you love.

Go where you feel most alive.

Follow your enthusiasm.

Stay curious.

Life is a party once you realize it is . . . eat up!

Aah . . . that’s better!

Ever the optimist, ain’t ‘ya? Party on, Nancy. 😄

nrhatch - February 7, 2021

I try to keep my inner pessimist in line and out of sight! 😆

2. Kate Crimmins - February 7, 2021

Can’t believe you have any pessimist stuck in you.

nrhatch - February 7, 2021

If I get “glum” I don’t stay there for long because it’s not a fun place to be.

In that way, I’m a bit like Scarlet O’Hara . . . waiting until “tomorrow” to deal with any unpleasantries!

Kate Crimmins - February 7, 2021

I only allow 24 hours for a pity party and only when something major has upset me. Best to move to problem solving as soon as you can. Thinking always makes me feel better. I always need a plan even if I don’t use it.

nrhatch - February 7, 2021

Smart thinking, Kate. It’s a pity when people waste their time with perpetual pity parties . . . telling themselves that they’ll never get over something. We are resilient as long as we DECIDE that we’re going to bounce back from adversity.

I always open your posts with a smile on my face, Nancy, since I know enjoyment and fun is ahead. Your title, in its simplicity, and possibly tongue in cheek entices me to see where you are taking us. “Alive…enthusiasm…curious…” Thank you. You set the tone for my day.😀

nrhatch - February 7, 2021

Yay! I’m glad my posts make you smile. That makes ME smile.

BTW: I got a kick out of the title of this post when it arrived this morning ~ when I scheduled it, I didn’t realize it would air on Super Bowl Sunday. PAR~TEE!

Erica/Erika - February 7, 2021

Don’t you love it when things fall into place, in a good way🙂

nrhatch - February 7, 2021

YES! When I get a *wink* from the Universe, I love it.

Absolutely! If we haven’t grasped that after recent events, we’ve lost out on a great recognition! I’m finding celebrations every day that previously might have been overlooked. 🙂

I’m getting through this pandemic one day at a time, but I have noticed a sameness to the days . . . like living through a perpetual Groundhog’s Day. Without the puddle!

If you haven’t seen the film in a while, for the first few days, Bill Murray steps in a deep pile of ice cold slushy water every morning on his way to tape Punxsutawney Phil for the evening news. Eventually he wises up enough to avoid the puddle and reach for new opportunities.

Watching the movie last week reminded me of the poem, There’s a Hole in My Sidewalk by Portia Nelson:


Portia’s poem is a good reminder to wake up and be mindful of life so that we notice “celebrations every day that previously might have been overlooked.”

How’s that for coming full circle? 😀

A cute photo of you, Nancy. I like the skeleton with the big red sombrero, too. He seems to be smiling.

nrhatch - February 8, 2021

Thanks, Nicki. That photo of me was taken on our last visit to Selby Gardens in Sarasota. A great place to wander around and smell the roses . . . and enjoy orchids, bromeliads, succulents, etc.

I took the photo of the skeleton at a Day of the Dead celebration at Village of the Arts. The artists in the enclave hold the festival each year around Halloween.

Stay curious is one of the best pieces of advice anyone can be given.

nrhatch - February 8, 2021

Yes! t makes life more interesting when we remain curious about what’s around the bend.
