I think one of my biggest faults is my inability to live in the now. I spend too much time thinking about the future. Sometimes I think about it with anxiety, sometimes excitement, but either way I’m forgetting to enjoy today.
I’ve been thinking a lot about how great this stage of life is. We do have worries, but they only concern Tanner and I. As long as we pay our bills, feed ourselves, and at least act like grown-ups at the appropriate times, life keeps going. The other day Tanner and I looked at each other and were like “we’re doing this, we’re actually doing this.” I don’t know what I expected, but it’s kind of cool that we’re totally taking care of ourselves.
Our worries are simple, and so are the things that bring us joy. I literally get excited every day when Tanner comes home. I get even more excited when he calls it quits studying for the night and we get to just be together. I wasn’t kidding, simple things make me happy (ahhh isn’t there a saying….simple minds…).
ANYWAYS, I’m going into ramble mode, but I wanted to publicly announce to the universe that although I may think about what our future holds a lot, I’m also very content with our now, and I’m ok with it staying this way for a while.
