It has been way too long since I have last posted but I have really gotten overloaded with things to do lately. But being overloaded has really inspired me to do a post about stress.
I was taking a shower yesterday and was thinking about how I just couldn't wait for it to be the weekend. My week had already been so stressful and it was only Tuesday. My to do list was about 100 pages long and I just wanted the week to be over so that I could move on and have fun.
Then I got really sad though. I started to think about how I'm always just trying to make it through until the weekend, or counting down to summer, or rushing to graduation. I'm not really living in the moment and enjoying the time I have. If I'm always living for the weekend then I'm missing out on 5 days a week. If I'm always living for summer then I'm missing out on 9 months of the year.
I am grateful for every day that I'm alive. To quote Kid President "This is life, people. You got air coming through your nose. You got a heart beat. That means it's time to do something." And to me that means enjoying every day. Do something every day that makes you happy to be alive. I think that part of that is appreciating the struggle, because it means that you're doing something.
I am grateful for...
