Enjoy the Moment…

People keep telling us, “enjoy her while she’s young — time flies,” (or some similar remark on how “fast they grow up.” I often feel undue pressure upon hearing this advice. Like I need to try harder to enjoy the moments instead of just enjoying them. It’s like someone telling you to live everyday like it’s your last. Fairly impossible for many reasons. If it was my last day on earth and I knew this, I would do things very differently. Like maybe I’d have five donuts in one sitting or go crazy and buy a Ferrari.

Anyway, all of this is to say that I sometimes feel this pressure to do better, be better, enjoy life more, etc. When shouldn’t I just be letting it happen — not putting all this pressure on myself to enjoy it. Like when you’re on vacation and you feel such total pressure to enjoy it that you don’t enjoy it.

I don’t know if any of this make sense. Perhaps this is just the rambling of a person who is on one too many allergy medications (tree pollen and cat dander are killing me softly). Thoughts?

If you haven’t checked out the albums lately, please do. And be sure to log in. I have closed access to a lot of pictures. If you have any questions about this, let me know.
