The Front Porch View-June 2018

The Front Porch View June, 2018 ISSUE

“Live in the Moment”

Greetings Family and Friends,


 It’s hard to believe the end of this month will mark the halfway point in 2018…and if like me, you are wondering where time goes.  June is a big month of change – school lets out, we transition from spring to summer, we celebrate Dads, and admit it, we start counting the days until school will start again, as the little ones have already begun to complain of boredom.  Ah, that’s where the time goes…we wish it away.  In the winter, we wish for spring, in the spring we can’t wait to be finished with the school routine, in the summer we can’t wait for the kids to get back to school, in the fall, we can’t wait to celebrate the holidays and so the world continues to turn, and time begins to spiral out of control, season passing season, year passing year.
I recently read an article written by Zorka Hereford, titled “Live in the Moment” offering great advice on making a shift from QUANTITY  time to QUALITY time.  I’ve attached the link to the article below and encourage you to take a quick peek. My goal for the summer months is to put into practice techniques for living in the moment – won’t you join me in my journey?

As a reminder, we are on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube.
