And remember … today is the main event!

Updated: Jul 8, 2023

I'm incredibly grateful for the amazing people I've met through my books. One of them is my dear friend Jeanette, who always seems to know exactly what I need and when I need it.

Back in May, Jeanette sent me a note with a parting message: "Bye for now busy girl! And remember... today is the main event!" At first, I didn't understand what she meant. I even thought I had missed some important event that day!

But once I figured it out (and laughed over my extreme 'task-center' focus), I realized how much I need these words to become a part of my mindset. This isn't the first time I've been reminded that if I'm not careful, I will miss out on truly experiencing each day.

For weeks, I've known I wanted this phrase: " is the main event" to be my July theme.

As the month began, I jotted down some thoughts around this idea. Here is my freewriting contemplation of what I hope to learn from this theme during this month:

The main event is today!


Being present

LIVING (in the verb/ in the act)

of Being, Living, Becoming

The Beauty of the Moment

The mental place to be present

to hear

to listen

to see

to care





Really Living





I am starting this month with WAY too much on the docket. I'm already seeking ways to make adjustments. However, I'm grateful for this mindset that will allow me to savor life's moments. Without it, I'm afraid I would overlook the abundance of joy and beauty within each busy and extraordinary day.



We are halfway through this year! The rest of the year will be done differently than the first six months. Today we are at a transition point.

My motto to myself is to simplify.

My second motto is to hold on to what has value.

So stay tuned for what is still to come. Lots more celebrations ahead.
