Getting this far into the year always has me thinking: what can I still get done before a new year and new resolutions come around to be made? Honestly, I can’t quite remember what my resolution was this year — but this isn’t about that. It’s about living life to its fullest before another year has come and gone.

I do have plans for 2020. I want to visit places I haven’t yet been to. I want to finish writing my book. Maybe start another one. Who knows? Because we aren’t there yet. So right now, we focus on what we can still do this year.

It’s been a fast calendar year for me. A lot has changed and happened, but that’s just exactly what life is about. So we embrace it and we appreciate how we grow from it.

In the short term, Monday, Oct. 14, is National Dessert Day, so I plan to celebrate that by trying a new dessert recipe (I’m undecided on whether it will be a “healthy” treat or not) and sharing it with some friends.

These are the days life is all about, folks.
