"You rush a miracle man, you get rotten miracles"
Stretching out your soul? Really, Jen?
Sounds super pretentious, right? I know!
Whatevs. I'm over it. Moving on.
I read this on FIMBY yesterday and it resonated with me:
"I love making plans and looking with anticipation to the future but this present moment, right here, is where I need to live with contentment. Not in the "if and when" future. I've got a lot to learn in how to live this way.
To have a foot in the future, always moving forward (because we have some awesome plans), but to be content with the present.
And I need to remind myself, daily it seems, that today I'm living yesterday's plans and dreams."
I think it's a great reminder that if we're always trying to "get there," it's easy to forget where we are. I am as guilty of this as anyone. I'm always thinking, Once X and Y are done, Z is going to be so awesome!

I need to meditate on this idea a bit. It just struck me so suddenly and with such ferocity that I had to share it.
