The things I should be cherishing

Standard

It’s January 1st, 2016, a Friday night. What am I doing? I’m cuddled up in my bed sipping on wine, snacking, and reading a book about marriage. Next to me is a picture of the man that I love.

As the clock struck midnight,I proclaimed, “this is the year I’m getting engaged!” Because that’s the game plan.

Yea, I know, I’m that girl.

I’m anxious to get to my future and live out all of the things I’ve been pinning to my “Ideas for the Future” Pinterest board. Duh.

But in all seriousness, I was sitting here looking at my room and realizing that there are not a lot of other times in my life when I’m going to sit in my big, comfy bed, having quiet reading time like this.

It scares me to think that I am looking forward to the future so much that I’m missing all the day-to-day happenings that make life worth living.

Anyway, I haven’t always loved this place. But this, this I might miss.

Here’s to intentionally making the effort to live in the present in 2016.
