A Gentle Reminder [Jan. 2nd, 2008|10:08 pm]
Amanda
[Current Mood |chipperresolute]

At times it seems the very purpose of my existence is to undermine the sensation of the "now" and instead immerse myself in the future and the past.

I need to frickin' stop it already. I'm young now and I won't be forever. As much as I yearn to get out of school, land a teaching job, get married, and have kids...I know these things'll happen eventually so why rush them? And after this point in my life ends there will be no returning to it. I will never truly be as young, promising, and free of responsibility as I am right now and even though things may be hard sometimes, when will they not be?

I need to sit back and enjoy what I have, how I feel, and who I am. Who wants to nitpick their way through life, anyway?

I know how you feel but it's 100 times harder for me because I'm so uncomfortable with life now. But I hope one day I can come to that realization and be able to live with it. I'm glad you have though :)

I can see why--your life's in an uncomfortable stage right now. We all have to go through it some time or another, unfortunately...but when you get out of it I'm positive that you'll have lots of great "now" things to keep you occupied. Even more so than your undoubtedly-great distant future which, if you give it time, will eventually become a "now" as well!

Be careful with that thing--you could poke someone's procrastination out! lol
