Looking back at the past, living in the present, and looking forward to the future!
Welcome to my short blog before I dive into another week of school, which I’m currently trying to get myself excited for! It’s been a short weekend, and I’m tired but there are a few things I’m looking forward to this week- Kent’s Hill SL race on wednesday… and maybe some earn your turns before I leave??? Maybe??? Senior Four Point Presentation on thursday with my mom, and as always, I’m looking forward to some good classes. Life is busy, but I’m trying to enjoy it the best I can.
So, as I’ve been preparing for my senior four point presentation, I’ve been getting pretty nostalgic. I’ve uploaded all of my photos, and I’ve been looking through them to gather my memories, and bring back anything I’ve forgotten. It puts a smile on my face no matter what, good memory or bad. This brought me to write this blog…
I looked at these photos, and I just wanted to go back. I’m sure you’ve all endured something of this sort, a memory that you just want to bring back. These pictures in particular really made me want to pack up and leave.
However, I also realized that I have to wrap my mind around school. I only have a few short weeks until a month long vacation, and I really need to hunker down and study hard. That’s where living in the present comes in. I believe that we should take every opportunity we get handed with a smile, but also need to enjoy the little things. A joke cracked in class, a spectacular novel you are reading for english- if you can’t enjoy it, what can you?
And finally, the future. I wanted to share this picture. Every morning when I drive to school, I see this scene.
So anyways, I hope everyone has as visible a goal as I do. It might seem far away, but I know it’s well within reach. I’m going to make it happen, and just thinking about it puts a smile on my face.
I hope everyone has a great week, and finds some time to smile and laugh!
