song of the day: 'sweet dreams are made of this' by the eurythmics
wow, i can't believe it's already august! where has the summer gone?
better yet, where has the year gone? time is just flying by incredibly
fast. the next two months are going to bring about some pretty big
milestones for me and it's leaving me feeling a little out of control.
like time is slipping away from me and i just worry that i'm not making
the most of it. i mean, i'm very happy and feel super blessed with
all that i've been given. i have an amazing husband, a sweet little
boy, a fun business, a cool house, a rad car, great health, a blog i
love putting together, and many more things i don't deserve. but
sometimes i just wish i could grab time and hold it still so it couldn't
keep on moving. then i could breathe and languish in these moments.
instead, i'm left sitting here wondering where the last year has gone.
i don't want to coast through my life and at the end of it wonder what
i did all those years. my dad has a bucket list that he's slowing
checking things off of. i think it's wonderful that he's at a point in his
life where he can do the things he's always wanted to do and see cool
places. the only thing about that is, i don't want to wait until i'm his age
to accomplish all i want to accomplish. i'm not guaranteed tomorrow
or even tonight so i have to make the most of what i've given right now.
which isn't to say that i need to be irresponsible in what i choose to do,
but that i need to find ways to make my dreams come true today and not
wait till later. does all that make sense? i just don't want to be disappointed
with life when i get to the end of it.
ok, so i know that was a bit heavy so i apologize for that. but
i did get a big surprise yesterday and was featured on the chictopia
home page! it made me smile :)
thanks everyone for all your support and comments and friendship
even if it's only via the internet. i really love it!
