Can’t I just Live NOW?

It feels like I live my life either in the reminiscing about the past or dreaming of the future. 

  • “Last week at this time I was at Disneyland”
  • “Next month at this time I’ll be on Spring Break”
  • “I’ll be done with school in about 15 months”
  • “I remember that just like it was yesterday”

I hear lots of parents saying “I’m wishing my child’s childhood away“, in part I feel the same way about myself … I’m always looking back at great times or ahead to new adventures.  Why can I not just live in the today.  The now.  The current. 

I’m sure I’m not alone in this frustration, how to other people work on being happy with the current situation. day. minute. second and not think about things from the past and things in the future?  I’d love to hear any advice you awesome readers have to share. 

Happy Saturday everyone!!

    It’s hard, isn’t it? Between getting ready for tomorrow & remembering the fun times of yesterday, finding the time to be in the moment is an art. (

    Oh, I’m in that struggle right now! I had three kids in three years, and the last couple of years have been really tough. Part of me wants them to grow up a little more so that the everyday will be a little easier, but the other part of me wants to keep them close and little forever!
