I'm such a planner, such a dreamer, that I'm always waiting for the next thing, or reminiscing about the past.
I can't wait till I go to college (although life really did do a 180 after that), I can't wait till I get married, I can't wait till we have a dog (also a 180), I can't wait till we have a house, I can't wait till Obama is out of office, I can't wait till we have kids, I can't wait till we have more money...etc, etc, etc.Well guess what? I've had to wait (and am still waiting) for all of these events. And guess what else? As I imagine how my life might have gone had I not had to wait...it scares me to death and I'm so grateful for the waiting. If I hadn't had to wait, I wouldn't have much of a past to reminisce about.
It was one of my New Year's resolutions to live in the moment and enjoy it...to stop just surviving. That part of my life is over, the surviving part. And I kinda like it.
