Teaser Tuesday : Taking Stock

I've been debating how to spin this Teaser for a few days now.  It's so simple to say "well, nothing's happened."  In the light of last Tuesday, what with the agent and the move and all this 'stuff' moving forward, everything else seems to pale in comparison.

But today reminded me once more that that simply isn't true.

My mom and I had one of our rare-yet-eagerly-anticipated days out today.  Went to an artsy town an hour away and wandered Main Street, window-shopping and tasting preserves.  Came back, popped popcorn, and watched a movie.

It's easy to say, "not much."

But that's a lie.  It was everything.

If there's anything I've learned in being on the move and saying goodbye too many times, it's this, and it's universal:

Life isn't made up of grand gestures and overwhelming transitions.  Life is everything that happens in between.

When you're caught up in achieving (or not achieving) or struggling or just 'getting through the day,' it's very easy to forget that.

So, take stock of where you are.  Embrace it.  And if you want, comment with some of those quiet moments that are easy to underplay, but mean the world.
Because life is happening right now, and it's all the most important thing you'll ever experience.
