Have you ever looked at the calendar and wondered ‘whoa!, where has the time gone?’ I can’t believe we are already in April. I still feel as if Christmas just happened! This year has flown by for me. I’ve recently felt as if time is flying by so fast and I have so much I still haven’t done. I watch my kids develop and grow everyday, and every time I see them accomplish a milestone, my heart is filled with love, joy, but also sadness. Sad because I know they are growing up. I recently just signed my son up for the next school year, and that has made me both excited and nervous (lets just be honest- I’m crying on the inside!)
As our everyday life activities happen, I find myself catching and holding on to some special moments. I can see my kids walking forward with their speed on fast, and as their mother, it makes me proud, but also makes me sit back and cherish these moments I have with them now. People always use to tell me, ‘enjoy them, because they grown up so fast’. That is the honest truth. Sometimes I think we get so caught up in our lives and look to how we can better ourselves for our future that we forget to live in the present. I believe it’s important to look forward to your future, and work towards your goals in life, but it’s also just as important to slow down sometimes and take the time to enjoy today. We wont’ get back tomorrow and can’t predict what will happen in the future, so I encourage those who feel like your life is moving at lightning speed and always on the go, slow down, relax and don’t forget to enjoy today.
