living life

Sometimes it feels like I am waiting for my life to start. It feels like once I graduate from college, or get married, my life will really begin. 

But I realized something the other day. My life started over 18 years ago. And I need to start living like it. I don't want to just sit around and wait for something to happen, I want to go out and make something happen. 

I want to live like there's no tomorrow and love like I'm on borrowed time.    

I think this realization came about because of my graduation. I have stepped into a new chapter of my life and while that is exciting, it is also scary. Because now I am an adult, making (for the most part) my own decisions. And in case you haven't experienced it yet, or have forgotten, I am here to tell you that growing up is scary. 

I don't want to have any regrets when I'm an old woman. I want to live my life to the very fullest extent that I can. I don't want to be so busy making a life for myself or dreaming about things that will probably never happen that time passes by without me noticing. 

Every day that I wake, every breath that I take you've given 
So right here, right now
While the sun is shining down
I wanna live like there's no tomorrow
Love like I'm on borrowed time
It's good to be alive

  1. Beautifully written! You are wise to appreciate the life you have right now. Yes, there are exciting things to come in the years ahead, but please treasure these days with your parents, siblings, grandparents, extended family, and others you love before the demands of life pull you in so many directions that you can't share the time together that you'd like. You are blessed with a wonderful family, and they, too, are blessed with you. Although your personalities may vary, the bond you share is precious and irreplaceable. I can promise you will never regret loving your family -and the Lord- as if you're on borrowed time. I wish I had realized that during my teen years and upon graduation. I love you and am praying for you as you cherish the time with your family and take pleasure in living like there's no tomorrow! Love, Aunt Marcy
