Live in the moment

Well June, we made it here quickly didn’t we? And I don’t know about you but I’m slightly in shock about how quickly this year is passing.  Halfway through two thousand and fourteen, already!
This time last year I had told you about leaving school, exams left to face. To me that seems like a million years ago.
So much has happened and changed in the course of 12 months that it’s rather odd to think that a life defining event like that was more than a whole year ago.
When I was a child those older and wiser used to warn me “You will be old before you know it” and “time passes in the blink of an eye.”  And at 7, anything other than Jacqueline Wilson books seemed a lifetime away.
How little did I know! 19 is still very young but before I know it, I certainly will be a decade older. I’m determined to not let life pass me by too quickly because it’s so easy to do.
I’m all too guilty of counting down the week days, hailing the relief of a Friday night and celebrating the lie-ins and lazy days a weekend allows.
The joy of every weekend seems to be the cost of a forgotten week and before we know it is another week, another month, another year. We are all just counting down to something; end of exams, an important birthday, a nice holiday, even just till lunchtime sometimes!
It’s great to have something to be excited about, but we shouldn’t live life in this constant waiting bubble.
Sometimes we just have to stop. Halt ticking off the calendar days and refrain from the countdown phone apps and just BE.
So for a just a moment, live in that moment! Take life slowly and enjoy every minute of your day. Stop counting down them hours and don’t be so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.
Life is to be treasured, enjoyed and celebrated. Be in your life right now, and not just an outsider who is counting down till tomorrow... It will be July before you know it!
