Looking at NOW!!!

Do you ever find yourself looking back on small decisions you made in your life and wonder what would have happened if you had chosen the other?

Lately I have found myself reminiscing on my life and the small decisions I have made that I have led me to where I am today. Many times in life I have definitely made the worse of the two, but for some reason I don't regret that. Through those wrong decisions I have learned so much and have ended up where I am today. And can I just say… I am loving where I am today!!!??? Life is not perfect, of course, and the crappy things that happen help me see the good. But, life really is so amazing!

A friend recently taught me to not worry about the future and what's going to happen, but to love the moments I am living in right now. Of course we hear this our whole lives, but for me I have ALWAYS thought about the future. Well when this person said it, I really listened, thought about it, and tried to apply it to my life. Because of this, the past few weeks have been not nearly as stressful.

So listen to me for one second,

Lets live in the NOW, and decide to love the NOW. Because before you know it, you're going to be old and almost dead and wonder where you life went as you wished moments and days away. And because I am contradicting myself I will say this (and somewhat not truly mean it) I am no longer counting down the days till summer, because I am grateful for my education and the things I am learning…

Finish each day and be done with it.  You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can.  Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
