Learning or planning….
Remembering or celebrating…
Looking back or moving forward….
The past or the future….
Yesterday or tomorrow…..
Never the present, never today!!! Just stop!!!!! Yes…… Stop!!!
Smell the coffee, engage in conversation with a stranger, embrace the beauty around you, the environment, call and hear their voice, love…feel it say it, be grateful, stay thankful. Someone once told me we are all here on borrowed time, soon enough that time runs out.
I was watching Storks the other day, love love love that animation, okay I love all animations. Let’s pause and remember how good it was, the babies aaaw, the wolf pack won though. You haven’t watched it, you don’t love animations?! But why, who are your friends?! Why are they your friends?! No, really why??! I really want to know (comment below). How are you human?! Stand in a corner and think about your life, critically. Or go watch it, you aren’t living until you’re watching animations. Anyways, still on Storks, the son wanted the dad to help him out for five minutes, and the dad was reluctant because he was supposed to be working( they were always working though, him and the wife). In response the son said, remember how I was just sweet and adorable the other day, soon I will not want to play with you anymore, I’ll be off to college. Those were three separate sentences by the way, that part was really funny (don’t you just hate it when people do that, spoilers though, but it was really funny)
My point?! Time flies, really it does (lessons from animations who would have thought, they are not just stupid cartoons). Don’t believe me?! How many of your parents’ friends or distant relatives come at you expressing how the last time they saw you, you were in diapers, or crawling or have very detailed embarrassing stories you don’t want to hear but have to….. I thought so. And now you are all grown up, yes time flies. We want to grow up, then it happens and we no longer want it, the responsibility, the bills follow, deadlines, consequences, the trap that is adulthood. In the midst of all these craziness we should just stop and recognize what we have, not what we lost or what we hope to get, but what we have! Today, the present that no matter the circumstances we were grateful when we had it/him/her/them.
So yes, Stop!!! And just live in the present, embrace and experience…. I’d planned this post way back, I knew what my tenth post would be about. In all honesty this post should have come around August last year, but I was busy with school and work and myself. RIP excuses, let’s call a spade a spade, I was lazy, and I’m woman enough to admit it (equality lol). Yeah, so I woke from my slumber, and I’m here recognizing my journey and stopping…..
Why?! Because I can…..But most of all because I am thankful, for all of you, who read and go step further and share. Who encourage me to keep going and ask for more. Who follow my blog.
Most importantly to God, for my talent, my journey, my blog, my loyal readers.
I stop to say thank you, I appreciate you all, always!!!!!!
