Stop!

I love the Rascal Flatts version of “Life is a Highway,” and each time I hear it I get excited.  I’m not sure why, but I always try to ponder the meaning behind the lyrics and it always gets my thoughts going.  Recently I’ve been thinking about life and noticed that sometimes it feels more like a roller coaster than a highway!

Have you ever stopped to think about how we are always wondering what is NEXT?  When you’re little you can’t wait to be older and see a PG13 movie or sit in the front seat of the car. Waiting to get your license, graduate high school, college, get a job etc.  Then you meet a boy and everyone wonders when you’ll get engaged, married, have a baby, and then when is the next baby coming?!

It’s hard not to get caught up in all of it and just enjoy life as it is RIGHT NOW.

So in this moment, take a little time to appreciate all you have and everyone in your life.  Even the small things, like hearing your favorite song on the radio or enjoying a few minutes in the sun.  Sometimes this crazy thing called “life” can run away from you and you’re too busy wondering what is next to enjoy what is happening right in front of you!

Here is my little piece of sunshine!
