Monday Musings

Listening to: Pieces by RED
Quote of the Day: “One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.”
Have you ever wondered what people looked like when they were younger? You know when you see those cute old couples barely moving along the sidewalk together, it always makes me think, 'What were they like?' I tend to see them as they are now and forget that they were not always the crotchety, old people they have become. The women were once beautiful, carefree girls who giggled over the dashing boys that would wink at them across the soda shop counters after school. The elderly men were once the suave young men that were brave and valient soldiers or the handsome dance partner at the sockhop. How strange that humans are so obsessed with being different than the way they are in this present moment..excuse me? Let me explain..When we're young, we are always trying to look much older, and when we become old, we do everything to look young again. Have we ever stopped to just enjoy and be in the moment?

 Nothing against coloring grey hairs and removing wrinkles, but have we lost the spirit of who we are now? Life is just so busy, and sooner than we expect, it passes us by like a gust of wind. I am determined to enjoy the person I am right now, in this present moment. There will be a time to act older and a time to have a youthful glow, but for right now, I want to enjoy this time. Besides, we are only guaranteed this moment.

This was just something I was thinking through today..

On another note: I decided to update my blog's look for the summer..I think it's kinda fun to change things up once in awhile!

Hope you're having a good week! I am praying for all of you!

Blessings and Present Moments,
