LTD. I’m not sure when I came up with that acronym, but it’s one I’ve been using for the last few years. I use it when I’m having peak moments. Moments when I’m at my happiest. When I am my most fulfilled. When I am overwhelmed by gratitude. When my soul is at peace.
LTD stands for Living The Dream. It’s shorthand for life is good. It’s this 3 letter code that I often blurt out to my husband or sister or best friend when I am literally living in what feels like a dream. We all have our LTD moments. Just look at people’s Facebook newsfeeds, they are often full of them. The interesting thing about my LTD moments is that I often find them at the simplest, most mundane times: watching my husband make pancakes with our boys on a Sunday morning, bobbing in the waves on a beautifully sunny southern California summer day, holding my husband’s hand while watching one of our sons perform on stage. It’s in those moments when I feel like there’s nothing more I would want or need as long as I have this. But recently there’s been a dream, a simple one, that I had not been able to live out.
