I find myself constantly looking forward. Forward to the school day being over, forward to the kids' bedtime, forward to my bedtime, forward to the weekend.
In the midst of all of this, though, I can forget to enjoy "the now." I can miss the beauty in "the now" and the experiences in "the now." Obviously this is not true all the time, I think I'm at my best when I'm home with the family trying to spend quality time with them. However, I'm still looking forward. Forward to Grant getting older, to Hannah talking and walking....you get the point.
I mentioned last week how I'd graduated from high school nineteen years ago, but I remember so much of it like it was yesterday. I don't want to blink and have my own kids leaving for college. I actually feel myself panicking as I type this.
So, what's the point? I don't think there is anything wrong with looking forward to the future, but I want to miss celebrating and enjoying each moment because I'm so focused on the future.
God placed me and you on this earth during this time for a purpose and I want to make sure my eyes are peeled for whatever comes my way and not miss a thing.
This top continues to be one of my favorites! Today I paired it with my Merona pencil skirt- this is over three years old and still one of my favorites, and a basic Old Navy cardigan, which is over two years old and continues to still look black and hasn't pilled at all. It's simple combos like this that make me feel great and put together so easily.
