Living in Fast Forward

17 May

I swear it’s like I blinked…and it was the middle of May.

I want to stop living my life in fast forward. Lately, I feel like I do is “go, go, go” and before I know it, another month has passed. A month has passed and I’ve put off doing things I should have done. What if this were my last month?

What would I regret not doing?

Having lunch with my dad, catching up with friends, seeing things I haven’t seen before, seeing things (and people) again that I love seeing, showing my family how much they mean to me, having a picnic, being lazy, counting stars, looking at old pictures, submitting a writing sample to a magazine, shopping with my mom, watching movies, reading, being more spiritual, telling people I love that I love them, helping people that aren’t as fortunate as I am…to name a few.

“Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.”
-Sydney Smith

What would you regret not doing? Let’s get to doing those things, then, shall we?

    Try Yoga, you will like it. And make time to do things you want to do. Life goes fast..just ask us "old folks" about that.
