I have been thinking A LOT about the future, and it's kind of messing with my head. Now, let's get this straight.. I AM IN LOVE with the future. I love progressing. I like change. I love daydreaming. It's all very hopeful to me. Honestly, my future seems bright in my book.. and I'm excited.
BUT, we can all get stuck in that rut of wanting the future to happen NOW. The problem with that statement is that you already have a NOW right now! LIVE daily in the moment.. because before you know it, it's gone. Cherish your blessings and show gratitude to Heavenly Father.
It's extremely hard to open your eyes and see that LIFE IS GOOD. But, I promise you.. even if it's rough, we are learning. We can make it through. AND WE ARE DOING IT. Take it one day at a time.. and remember TODAY IS THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. It's super silly sounding.. but when I have that mentality, it is so much easier to enjoy all the little moments. I don't stress as much and I focus on the basics. START WITH PRAYER AND SCRIPTURE STUDY..
It's always important to prepare for the future and have an eternal perspective.. But, don't forget to LOVE LIFE NOW. There is so much fun to be had with amazing people.. MAKE CHRISTMASTIME your ultimate family time. Don't wish for the future to come too soon.. you can prepare and do what you want to do now. Live your dreams now, take those chances now... STAY POSITIVE AND TRUST GOD.
Love you all.
