Embrace the Now

I can’t believe that more than half of 2015 has already passed. Time really does fly by when you’re having fun. Lately┬áI’ve been doing a lot of thinking about life and all the plans I’ve been making. October is going to be an exciting month for me, I have a lot of travel plans and get to see some of my dearest friends. I’m really looking forward to it, because I feel like I spent a lot of September wishing.

I wished for the moment when I’d finally find “the one.”

I wished for the moment when I would find the job of my dreams.

I wished for next summer and a cross country road trip I’m thinking about taking

I wished for the day I might get married and start a family

But, then I realized, as wonderful as all of those things would be, that when I wish for them to come, when I wish for those days, that I am wishing away all the time and memories in between. Getting married and having a family means one day I’ll have to say goodbye to this beautiful little townhouse of mine that I’ve worked so hard to decorate and make my own.

Finding “the one” means even though we’ll create memories of my own, I’d have to say goodbye to spontaneous friend vacations, me trips and waking up and being selfish and doing for Courtney 100% of the time. And to be honest, right now, I’m not ready to do that. I like my life the way it is right now.

And wishing for my road trip to come now means speeding through the holidays, professional cheerleading season, coaching my little ones through cheerleading and all the fun, exciting things that may happen along the way.

Yes, someday is fun to think about. And it is fun to hope for, but we never know when it may come, so until then, I have to remember to cherish what I do have and love my life for what it is now, not tomorrow.
