I’ve always been a planner, a do-er, and achiver. I was joking with Andy a few nights ago about how I may overextend myself at times, but stuff always gets done!
I think more often than not, we tend to get wrapped up in the “counting down”–the waiting, anticipating, planning, and preparing. In the midst of this, we usually lose sight of the now–what is happening around us, while we wait for the next big thing.
Over the past few years, many exciting milestones have happened, but to be honest, once in awhile I find myself reminiscing of simpler days–summer break, more time with friends, a slower-paced day, and less stress.
However, then I look back on what I have now–a marriage, a place for us to live, confirmation that I chose the right career, etc. and I’m reminded how far I’ve come, even if we don’t have a dog, kids, or a house that looks like it could belong in Better Homes & Gardens…yet. Those things will come and I’ll most likely find myself daydreaming of “simpler days” every once in awhile when I didn’t have to walk the dog, drive kids all over the place, or clean three floors of a house.
Just a little reminder to enjoy the now and all of the little things it includes–even while you are “counting down” to the next milestone or event in your life.
