I miss my childhood. I miss the big gatherings during the holiday and football seasons, where everyone came over for a giant feast (during football we would barbecue!) Grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins digging into turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and everything else that comes with holiday dinners. All of us little ones sneaking so many goodies our tummies would hurt later that night. We would play hide and seek along with a few of our own made up games in Grandma and Grandpa’s massive backyard, one of which we called jibby jibby. I have no idea where we came up with the name for that game…we were children, so who knows!? But we continued to play jibby jibby almost every time we gathered together. Years would go by and we would still choose to play it, until one day we moved 1300 miles away.
Everyone always says time flies by in the blink of an eye, and you know what? It does. I look back at my life and wonder where that time went. Why didn’t I appreciate it a little bit more? Why didn’t I try to change my life back then? Not as a kid, but later in life after I graduated. I am still working at the same job I started in high school 10 years ago. I am still single and still childless. The last two I have no complaints about right now, even though I do desire to be married and have children someday. But why haven’t I tried harder to accomplish a dream? To begin working in a career that will put me on the path in the right direction. Something I am passionate about.
Looking back at the time I’ve let slip through my hands, I have realized it’s time to take control. To enjoy every moment. I have set up goals that I need to accomplish by the end of the year. By then, if everything plans out and my goals are achieved, I will be able to live life a completely different way. I can’t say too much yet, because I am not sure what the outcome will be or where I will be with my goals. But I am excited for what is to come. And I am excited to share each step with you, as well as many goal accomplishments. It’s going to be hard, but I’m determined to make it happen. To finally be happy doing something I am passionate about. It’s a new year to get things rolling off the floor. To fly high and make dreams come true! Time for me to write a new chapter in my life.
We only live one life. So don’t waste it! Live one day at a time, and take every minute for granted!
