And if you’re as good at math as I am, you’ve deduced that because today is a first, yesterday was a last. As in, the last day with Dane for a few weeks.
My heart is crying a little bit knowing I won’t get to wake up to his sweet face or enjoy fun weekend adventures. But my heart is smiling a little bit knowing I’m getting the opportunity to spend time with other people that I love. Other people that care about me. And other people that I’ve been missing while enjoying life in Hawaii.
Sidenote: I also get to TRY ON MY WEDDING DRESS FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME. So yeah, there’s some smiling about that, too.
I had a
million hour plane ride some time to think about how important it is to be present. To enjoy what is going on currently. To savor the moments while you’re in them and forget about what the next thing is. To stop worrying about posting a photo to Facebook, finding the perfect filter on Instagram, and posting a status to Twitter. Does it really matter that you didn’t post it WHILE IT WAS HAPPENING? Is it going to kill you if you have to post it a couple hours later? No.
I’m a worrier by nature. I need to know what will happen next, whether it’s the next hour or the next week. I plan and I worry, and, most times, for naught, because life is going to happen whether you plan on it or not.
Sometimes I’m too busy scheduling my future, that I’m not enjoying my present, and is that any way to live? I get so caught up in technology and worries that I forget to stop and enjoy what’s going on all around me.
I think it’s safe to say we all do this, so take some time today, this weekend, and beyond to enjoy every. single. minute.
