Time Flies (#232)

I’m really trying my best to be present. To savor and cherish every second that passes me by in a day. I get to celebrate one of my best friends, Melissa, with her family and I’m grateful. The problem is as I write this post, is that today is already over.

This goes two ways though. I feel like I’m being mindful without the constant mental reminders. I engage in conversation, I use my senses to appreciate my surroundings, I listen to others, and it all falls into place from there. I can’t believe there’s already been 11 days of August because I feel like I just got home.

Life is both long and short, we gotta make the most of it anyway we know how.
