|A Gentle Reminder

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?
