"I couldn't wait to turn sixteen so I could finally drive, I couldn't wait to graduate high school and go to college, I couldn't wait to fall in love with the man of my dreams and get married, I couldn't wait to purchase our first home, and now I can't wait to start a family of our own. I'm always waiting anxiously for the next big thing to happen." -Believe in the Sparks
I spent the first two years of college really... enjoying my experiences, if you will. It seems as if the moment I was informed I had to figure out "what I wanted to be when I grew up" all sense of carelessness went out the window (along with my unhealthy obsession for heavy eyeliner- praise The Lord!). Fast forward two years and I am baffled at where the time went, imagine that!
I often have trouble saying no. Sue me. I like to boost myself up with a little pep talk that goes something like this:
"You can do this! Why not? You have the rest of your life to say no! It will be fun, I promise!"
[Insert a to-do list impossible to finish here]
With that being said, I am making a new promise. I am going to live more in the moment. Whether that means flying by the seat of my pants or typing out bulleted to-do lists for my day, who knows. As long as I stop to enjoy my days, each and every one of them.
-when are you getting married?
-what are you doing after graduation?
-what can you do with that degree?
-when do you plan to lose your freshman 15?
"WHATEVER AND WHENEVER IT HAPPENS! I've got the rest of my life! Right now I'm young, broke (compared to any standard other than that of a college student) and [attempting to be] careless."
Here's to living in the moment!
