Wise words. I’ve had this photo up on my computer for a few days, just to remind myself to make each and every day count.

I’ve busied myself with my jewelry shop for the past month. I’ve found that the creative focus has helped me. I missed creating. I missed that aspect of my life. When I was little I went around telling everyone I could that I wanted to be an artist when I grew up.

Over the years as I’ve dealt with first FMS and now Lyme, I felt myself forgetting. I’d lost that passion. I knew it was in me, somewhere, but I didn’t have the energy to rekindle it.

Recently I’ve discovered that those pieces of jewelry I create actually do make each day count. I can see tangible proof that my life is in my hands. I chose to make something. At the end of the day I can look down and see what I did that day. That counts for something when most days are a blur.

Of course that’s only one thing in my life that makes a difference each day. I could list them all, but that would make for one l-o-n-g post!

What makes your days count?
