I'm guilty of this. I've always looked forward to the "next big thing," and I've done my fair share of remembering the "good old days," which didn't seem so good back then. But today I had a revelation. This time right now, this moment in life, this is exactly where I want to be. I know there will come a day when I remember when Emily was a baby, Lizzie was by my side, and Keith and I were living in our first house trying to make it through his residency.
I don't want to look back and know I didn't realize just how great it was. So today, when the doorbell was ringing, Lizzie was barking, Emily was crying, and the phone was ringing, I decided to live in this moment. Because as hectic and stressful as it can be, this is the best moment in my life so far. I feel happy, complete, and totally satisfied in my life. How many people can say that?
