I ran across a book called, "Life Doesn't Start 5 Pounds from Now!" and it really caught my eye. How true it is for my life! Not just talking about the weight issue, although that applies to me as well.
I thought life would start when I graduated from high school. I got to college and I thought life would start when I got married. Matt put a ring on my finger and I'm still thinking When the heck is life going to start? Trust me, I'm not to the point where I say "Kids!" is when my life will start...no grandkids in our family for a while!!
I was laying in bed last night listening to Matt talk in his sleep and I looked around my room and kind of had one of those How did I get here? moments. Not that I am not excited about where or who I am right now, but it sort of creeped up on me quickly!
I guess I am realizing that we never arrive. There will never be a point in our lives where we have achieved all the we want to. We will never do all that we ever dreamed for ourselves. So why wait? Why am I waiting for 5 pounds from now or even 5 minutes? I should be seizing every moment and experience I have!
What are we waiting for?
