“happiness, not in another place but this place…not for another hour, but this hour.” (walt whitman)
i (laura) keep thinking to myself that i need to live in the moment more. it’s summer and i am relatively stress free without school. also, my senior year, one of many lasts, is just around the corner. i’m a planner, i love to think ahead and have an idea of what i want to do, but when it’s summer, i wish i could turn my planning mode off. sometimes, i feel so cheated by time; i wish i knew where i was going for college, i wish i had realized how often i would think back to a certain day and enjoyed it more… etc. my goal this summer is to just take everything in and feel it all. i want these days, that i spend with the people i love, to stay with me forever because these days are the days that i’ll dream of in the fall and in the years to come. every day matters, every day is special.
with that, goodnight, friends! enjoy today, enjoy tomorrow, enjoy it all.
