May is quickly approaching which got me to thinking about my life one year ago at this time. One year ago I was graduating college and anxiously thinking about my future.
I think it’s common to think about the future and what it’s going to entail. When I was in high school, I would think about college. When I was in college, I would think about what kind of job I would get after graduation. Now that I’m a working professional, I still think about the future. Where will I be in five years from now? Will I still be doing the same thing? Where will my blog look like? Will I still have the same friends, or new ones? <<hopefully both! I think a lot of people constantly wish for the future and yeah, I used to be one of those people. I think what’s really important is focusing on the now, because the now was once the future you were wishing for.
I think it can be hard not to think about the future and I don’t think you should stop thinking about it, but appreciating all that you have today, right now, is so important. Like what? Right now I am happy for…
My health, my family and friends’ health, the fact that I have a job, to not only live in a wonderful apartment but also with a wonderful boyfriend.
Everyone has something in their life right now that they are thankful for, along with something that they wish they could change. Wishing that you could fast forward time isn’t going to make anything better and once something is gone, it’s gone. You’re in high school wishing it could just be over and in a blink of an eye, it is. As much as I sometimes wish I was 27 with my life “figured out”, I’m pretty sure I won’t have it figured out at 27. Or maybe I will, who knows. It may sound corny, but life is all about the journey, and what a journey it is to be fresh out of college trying to figure the world out. That’s life, that’s RIGHT NOW, and I’m loving it.
Q: What are you enjoying about life right now?
