Time of Our Lives

This super weird thing happens as you get older- time starts going by SO fast.

I’ve been through the ringer or somezing.

In high school, a day felt like an actual eternity.

Even an hour was a long time. Ten years later, weeks and months fly by like minutes.

I can only imagine how fast time will move in the years to come.

Perspective is an interesting concept.

I added these car photos to reflect the whole perspective metaphor. A trip with my cousin to Santa Barbara and cruising in the Instagram car at Facebook dressed as zombies. All sorts of perspectives happening, eh?

Desires have a way of manifesting.

Take a step back and notice your conversations.

If you’re unhappy with something about your personality, set aside time to fix it. Time may be flying, but you’ve always got time for improvements.

Accept failure, for failure is how we learn.

That time you have to obsess over an outfit or be mad at a friend- appreciate it, because you might not always have that youthful freedom later down the road.

Embrace the #firstworldproblem

“Gratitude is one of the best ways to find contentment. We are often discontent in our lives, desire more, because we don’t realize how much we have. Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, be grateful for the amazing gifts you’ve been given: of loved ones and simple pleasures, of health and sight and the gift of music and books, of nature and beauty and the ability to create, and everything in between. Be grateful every day.”
Zen Habits

The cycle continues…

    I think I am grappling most with self-defeating words/mindsets – this applies to my body, work, motherhood, being a wife. I think the negativity, at times, can become all-consuming. I never considered myself a negative person but I’ve become more cynical over the past couple of years. It’s something I’m working through and intentionally trying to fix!
