Ever feel like your life is a huge Nascar Race? We spend our younger years yearning to grow up and once we become adults all we want is the simplicity of childhood. We take one second to breathe and realize that a whole year, or ten years, has passed. Slow down, savor the moments, take time to learn from mistakes, and take time to love life and all its lessons.
This year I am turning 30 and when I look back over the last ten years I see a lot has happened but I haven’t accomplished the things I wanted to, I haven’t taken time to really enjoy the moments I’ve had, everything has been such a blur. Two weeks ago my Grandmother went into the hospital unexpectedly and it really hit me that I need to make some changes. I need to spend more time on the things, and people, that mean the most to me and less time trying to change the world overnight. My Grandmother said something very important to me one night when I was visiting her – she said, “Stop worrying about everything and just do your best every day. Everything will work out”. She’s right. So this year as I continue on my journey through life, I will wake up every morning prepared to do the best I can that day and I will trust that God has a plan and that everything will fall into place as it is meant to.
