The here and now.

August 25, 2008

So, I’ve been in Malibu for 2 weeks. I have been doing NSO stuff, kappa details, meetings, being “dorm mom”, freshman mentor, then starting school and an internship! Its been absolutely fast paced life for the last two weeks and I haven't had the time to sit and think about anything.

I feel like I’m sitting here, watching my life fly past me at a speed to fast to catch up too and i don't know what to do. I feel like theres no time. Never enough time to break, not enough time to talk, to sleep to think about anything, to look at the beauty in the present or to live now. I haven’t talked to my best friends from home in days - I feel out of the loop, like I’m letting them down. I feel like I haven't been able to be there for them, like real friends should. Everythings planned, or being planned. Everything revolves around “whats going to happen.”

I think, all too often we spend our whole life planning whats going to happen in the future. “Tomorrow I have this…. next week I’ll have time… next year I’m going to do this…” When are we going to stop.listen. and be here, to really celebrate now?

That’s my goal this year - to really celebrate the here and now. To recognize the beauty and awesomeness in every day.

This is my last year - and I need to appreciate whats here.
