After this it gets better, right? After high school comes college. After college there's a job. After the job, is the house, the kids, the grandkids, on and on. Always something to look forward to. Something more, something better.
I have a hard time staying in the moment. I think that's one of the reasons I like to blog- it reminds me of the things I did today, not the things I will do tomorrow. I look forward so often that it's hard to remember I have so much here and now.
After this, we'll be okay. Once it's done, things will calm down. But if you step back and look at the larger picture, the giant frame you can barely comprehend, after is just a series of nows. And I'm so busy trying to be prepared for what's next that I don't focus on what's here.
Let's remember to enjoy here and now. Let's not look or prepare or worry about what comes after. Because I don't want to miss this.
