Isn't that backwards? Obviously!
We all do it though.
When I saw the quote, "You live your life the way you live your days", it was like a little firework went off in my head. I DO NOT WANT to look back on my life in 5, 10, 15 years and say, "Rachel…you were always looking for the next ___________." You spent your days preparing for the next, NOT living in the moment or spending your day on things fruitful and important. You spent your days planning for the next, rather than enjoying the one God gave you."
So, today (and I'm hopeing each day going forward) I will stop and realize that I am LIVING my life. NOT planning for the life I "want". This IS life. I'm in it. Right in the middle. NOT looking forward, not wanting what is down the road…just living.
