Stop & Live


My mind is constantly making a to do list of everything I need to get done-- today, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, & so on. I'm a [hardcore] planner. I like to have things set in stone & write them down on my calendar. But sometimes I forget just to live.

We are all so distracted by everything in our world-- technology, social media, the news. While those things aren't necessarily bad in & of itself, sometimes we forget to just stop & live.

Breathe. Take it all in. You aren't promised tomorrow. You aren't even promised your next breathe. We forget that life is a gift. It's a precious thing that flies by. 

So stop wishing your life away. Stop waiting to get that perfect job. Stop waiting for the perfect person. Stop waiting for your kids to get out of diapers. Stop waiting for retirement.

Make today count. Because you'll never have another one like it.
