"Watch it girl! You are wishing your life away" she would say.
I'm wishing so much of my time away waiting for the next big milestone or event in my life and I'm totally taking for granted all of the little things right now. I'm anxiously awaiting an engagement and marriage, buying a house, checking things off my bucket list. As much fun as these things are going to be when their time arrive, I really need to start counting my lucky stars for the days I have now. One day I'm going to look back thinking about how much fun I had back when I was single or wishing I had peace and quiet on the weekends like I do now.. These are special and important days of my life too. I've got to start taking more advantage of being young before life decides to kick me in the face.
In high school I was always living life on the edge (within limits of the law). I was always really truly taking every moment in.. At some point, I let that crazy girl get away from me, and I'm beginning to miss her.
We've got to stop focusing so much on the future that we forget to live for today.
Ok, now I promise to get off my touchy-feely soap box and get on with our lives.
