2013 has been a year of CHANGE.
Some good. Some not so good.
All of it unsettling in some way.
And my daughter graduating from high school and moving from home.
See the bright lights in the big city? This is where my daughter now makes her home.
Big time unsettling.
But thankfully, finding yourself unsettled is not always a negative thing.
For example, while eating dim sum in Chinatown last week, I was COMPLETELY unsettled when I noticed Golden Globe winner, Jake Gyllenhaal sitting two tables away from me.
There he was in all his movie star glory, eating dim sum and essentially breathing the same air as me and all that.
(Note: Thank you to Phil for recommending I go to Nom Wah Tea Parlor in NYC.)
I was definitely unsettled. But in a fun and exciting way.
Plus, that moment gave new meaning to the Celebrity Diet, because I couldn’t eat another bite of food after noticing Jake.
And by the way, I can totally call him by his first name now. Because I’m sure he was just as unsettled by the woman two tables away with the bug eyes, furiously texting her sister:
OMG I’m like ten feet from Jake Gyllenhaal!!!!
We shared a moment. I’m sure.
So yeah, there’s been some shake ups.
Which, naturally for my over thinking brain, has led to a lot of reflecting.
And reminding myself to celebrate what I’d like to see more of…
Like the sunrise–this one was in Virginia Beach yesterday.
And soaking up every uplifting moment
And if I’m being honest, I wouldn’t mind another Jake Gyllenhaal moment. Just saying.
Wishing you a happy, peaceful, and awesome new year!
